Currency Buy Back

Do you offer a currency buy back service?

Yes. You can either visit one of our branches, or you can use our direct buy back service where you post your bank notes to us and we exchange the GBP amount directly to your bank account. 


What exchange rate will I get for my buy back?

The rate used for your exchange is the rate available when we process your exchange. Currency rates can move substantially day-to-day and hour-to-hour, so if you mail your Travel Money to us for exchange you will get the exchange rate on the day we process it rather than the day you send it.

What can I exchange?

We only accept bank notes, not coins. Notes must have an individual value of less than 100GBP.

We don’t exchange bank notes that are damaged, out of circulation or due to be going out of circulation in the next 6 months.

We accept most major currencies, but we can't buy back every single currency as there are restrictions in place on certain currencies. The list of currencies we accept is listed here.

We’re unable to accept any legacy currencies from countries now using the euro. If you want to double check which countries are using the euro, visit the European Central Bank.

If you’re not sure if we accept a currency, please feel free to contact our Travel Money Support Team.

Can I exchange old or discontinued currencies?

No, we can only buy back currencies that are currently in circulation.

Can I use the buy back service if I didn't buy my currency from you originally?

Yes. Any UK resident over the age of 18 can use our buy back service, where you mail us your bank notes and we exchange the GBP amount into your bank account.

How long will it take for you to process my buy back if I send it to you in the post?

We recommend that you allow up to 5-10 working days to allow us to receive your money and complete the bank transfer.

How should I post my currency to you?

We recommend that you post your bank notes using Royal Mail Special Delivery as this means your order is tracked and insured. Fill out the form, print it and include it in the envelope with your cash so we have all the information we need to process your exchange quickly.
