We buy unused travel money

We check the market every day to ensure you get the best buy back retail rates on the high street

Following the temporary closure of our in-store Bureau de Change desks, we can't currently buy back the currency that you purchased from us.

We hope you understand this is because we want to prioritise the safety of our customers and Partners right now.

Our buy back service will be available as soon as our Bureau de Change desks reopen.

Buy back

If you have any leftover notes at the end of your trip, just pop to your nearest Bureau de change where we’d be happy to buy them back*. We check the market every day to ensure you get the best buy back retail rates on the high street.

Buy back guarantee

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.

If you didn't originally purchase your currency from us or don't have proof of purchase, we're unable to buy back the following currency: Trinidad & Tobago Dollar (TTD).
