I will not give these any star ratings, but you can't post the review without one showing! As others have said, they send out 100 euro notes and nobody wants to change them. Phoned them up and they didn't care. Went to my local branch, not thier problem, maybe i'll change banks!! Avoid . 1075 euros came as 7x100 6x50 3x20 1x10 1x5

Ordered euros online from HSBC got a good rate and all went smoothly till I picked them up and most of euro were 100 euro notes they will not change for smaller notes and no one else will either. I have been a customer for over 30 years and was told by the branch tough luck. I have an official complaint just started today about the fact I got so many large notes and they will not change them, do not buy from here I know I wish I had not. I will not be a customer of HSBC for much longer and they don't care about that either, its the attitude we have your money tough luck its your problem. Wish I could give 0 stars

Abysmal. I am very sorry I didn't see previous review before purchasing. HSBC sent 100 Euro notes and refused to change them. No one else will change them either (local bureaus all said they wouldn't take them as nobody would want them - shame HSBC think its ok!) Attitude of HSBC was 'tough luck'

Avoid. Sent me most 100 Euro notes and refused to change them for lower denominations when I asked for more of a mix as I wasn't comfortable carrying large value notess

I think HSBC is one of the top ranking banks in the world as they offer a very professional services and good customer support. :)

A quick easy and pleasant experience buying our Euros this week. HSBC certainly gave us a good rate and prompt no charge delivery service. We shall certainly use them again.

After checking around for the best price for travel money we finally decided on HSBC as they offered free home delivery. After buying travel money from HSBC & checking my bank account it seems we have been charged an extra £4.50 for using a debit card to buy it! There was nowhere on the site that told us this (well certainly not that we saw easily) It wasn\'t stated on the purchase page that there would be an extra charge. Next time i\'ll draw the cash out & buy elsewhere.

I agree it is a rip off but leave Britain out of it. Think what HSBC stands for ! Hong Kong and Shangai !
