London Luton Airport is the fourth busiest airport in London behind Gatwick Airport, Heathrow Airport and Stansted Airport. However, the London Luton Airport has seen the biggest growth rate in passenger numbers at 19.4% in 2016 when compared with 2015.

With this increase in passenger numbers at the London Luton Airport comes an increase in demand for other passenger services such as Currency. At the London Luton Airport the main currency supplier is ICE Plc of which they offer a Click and Collect Currency service.

However, at present the Click and Collect Currency service at London Luton Airport only consists of printing off or downloading a voucher from the ICE Plc website. This then has to be presented to the ICE Plc branch at the London Luton Airport to receive a discount on the Euro currency and the US Dollar currency.

Without this ICE Plc voucher you will be charged a higher exchange rate and may also incur additional commission fees. This also means you are unable to fix your exchange rate before you get to the London Luton Airport.

Typically, exchange rates at airports are not the best and are in fact some of the worst as you have less opportunity and time to compare currency exchange suppliers and exchange rates before jetting off overseas.
