Getting the best exchange rate

Our free currency comparison service can help you to save money and get the best deal on your travel money. Every hour, we compare thousands of exchange rates from dozens of the UK's top currency suppliers to bring you the latest deals all in one place. We automatically factor in delivery costs, commission, and any other charges into our comparisons so you can be sure that there are no hidden costs when you checkout; the rate you see is the rate you'll get.

As a general rule of thumb, online currency suppliers tend to have the best exchange rates, followed by the supermarkets, travel agents, the Post Office, banks, and finally the airports. Airports are the most expensive place in the UK to buy travel money so don't leave it until the last minute: we recommend ordering your currency online whenever possible to maximise your chances of getting the best exchange rate; you can order from any of our travel money partners and get your currency securely delivered to your home for free (a small delivery charge may apply if your order is less than £500). All travel money orders are sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery which is fully insured by Royal Mail and guaranteed to be delivered on the next working day.

To get started, select the currency you want to buy and we'll show you the latest travel money deals available now.
