See more of Mexico

Using cash instead of card is a great way to get straight to the heart of Mexico. 

Whether you’re sipping an ice-cold margarita on a sprawling beach, touring the ancient ruins, or immersing yourself in the local art and music scene, local guides and vendors can usually only accept cash payments. Some may accept US dollars, but it’s handy to have some pesos on hand. 

With its rich history, delicious street food, and stunning natural beauty, Mexico has something to offer for every type of traveller. 

Order your Mexican pesos, or exchange in-store so you have cash before you set foot in an airport.

Sell your leftover Mexican pesos

After your trip, you can sell any pesos you have left and we’ll exchange them back into pounds. Just stop by a John Lewis Bureau de Change point with your ID and pesos.

Guarantee return within 35 days

If your holiday to Mexico is cancelled, you can return your pesos to any John Lewis Bureau de Change. You’ll receive a full refund, even for online orders. Returns will need to be made within 35 days of the purchase date. Bring your original order receipt or order confirmation with you. 

Please note that returns and buy backs can only be made in-store.
