Exploring the Lion City

As many local markets in Singapore may only accept cash payments, paying with cash is an excellent way to embrace the city-state’s unique culture.

As one of the many culinary capitals of Southeast Asia, a visit must include a dish or two from their street food markets. Indulge in the simple but perfect Hainanese chicken rice, succulent satay skewers, a creamy and spicy bowl of Laksa, or a plate of tantalising chilli crab.

Order your Singapore dollars or exchange them at select Bureau de Change, and have cash ready for when you land.

After your trip, you can sell any Singapore dollars you have left over, and we’ll exchange them back into pounds. Visit a John Lewis Bureau de Change with a valid ID and your spare dollars.



Guarantee return within 35 days

If your trip to Singapore is cancelled, you can return your currency 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, your proof of cancellation, and the ID you used to make your purchase.

Please note that you can only return or buy back currency in-store.
