  • My currency did not arrive on time
  • I did not receive the notes I requested
  • Ordering was not easy and straightforward
  • I would not recommend this supplier to others

went instore to buy euros - asked for £250 worth on their travel card - had already just been next door to Thomas Cook to check their rate which was 1.40 but as I always use Thomson/First Choice I went there as they always price match. I've never used one of the travel cards before so was side tracked asking how they worked and forgot to ask for the exchange rate. After the transaction was done I remembered and asked what rate they had given me. 1.33 - I am absolutely disgusted with them. I have been ripped off. I will never, ever get my currency from them again. I will be spreading my story for others to read . BEWARE - ALWAYS ASK FOR THE RATE FIRST.

  • I ordered £250 worth of Euros
  • This was not the first time I used this supplier
  • I received my currency on or before the expected date
  • I did not receive a good mix of notes
  • I would not recommend this supplier to others
