Bureau rates on Thursday 1 June 2023, 11:20
If your holiday is cancelled, you can return your currency for a full refund within 35 days of your purchase date. Refunds will be for the full order amount only and you’ll just need your original order receipt or order confirmation, along with the ID you used to make your purchase.
At our bureaux we’re more than happy to buy back currency that you didn’t quite manage to spend on holiday. To see if you can sell us your leftover travel money, check the list of accepted currencies on our website. We can buy any accepted foreign currency notes in good condition, but regretfully foreign currency coins cannot be exchanged.
There are a select few closed currencies such as Egyptian pounds and Indian Rupees that we unfortunately cannot buy back. To check if we accept the currency you want to exchange, please check the list on our website.
While we can’t buy back your leftover currency online, we are more than happy to do so in person. To find your closest John Lewis Bureau use our handy locator and pay us a visit.
At John Lewis Bureaux you can’t directly trade one currency for another, but you can sell us your foreign currency first and then buy a different currency in sterling. A list of the currencies available to buy can be found on our website.
