Expert Quote

"There's never been a better time to return your leftover currency. We track the market every day to bring you great rates, and we don’t charge you commission. For a limited time only if you return £50 or more to your local John Lewis Bureau you’ll receive a £5 voucher to use in store on the same day" (T&Cs apply).

Frequently asked questions

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.
