It’s helpful to know what currency you’ll need when travelling abroad before you get there. This ensures you can jump right into the fun when you arrive. For guidance with what currency you require for your destination, use our rate table.
John Lewis supplies up to 60 types of currency, to help keep you provided with cash for destinations as close as Paris to as far as Malaysia. To find out if we stock the currency you require, you can check the list on our rate table above.
Withdrawing holiday money abroad is great in an emergency, but you can’t guarantee the currency exchange rate will be the same as it was when you left home, and you might be subject to ATM fees. By exchanging currency with John Lewis before you go, you can be safe in the knowledge that you’ll get a great rate and you won’t be paying any commission.
Yes, you can absolutely use a credit card to buy your travel money. Better still if you use your Partnership Credit Card when buying your currency, we’ll give you 5 points on your Partnership Card for every £4 you spend.
It’s important to know that while we do not charge you extra to pay by credit card, some card issuers charge additional fees for foreign currency exchange payments, so it is always advisable to check with your bank first.
The amount of travel money you need to take on holiday depends on what kind of trip you’re taking, but it’s always smart to have a budget so you know what to expect. No matter how big or small your budget you should take multiple ways to pay with you, to keep you safe in every scenario. This could be cash, debit/credit cards or prepaid travel cards. If you end up with leftover foreign currency at the end of your trip, we’re happy to buy it back off you at a competitive rate.
Finding your closest Bureau has never been easier with our Bureau de change locator, you just need to type in your postcode and check out your options.
If you don’t want to make the trip to a Bureau, you also have the option to order online and pick up from your nearest John Lewis or Waitrose or even have it delivered to your home the next working day.
