I went to pick up my travel money that I ordered and found that they didn’t have the currency in stock. A complete waste of a journey. It turns out that m&s are quite happy to send you confirmation that your money has arrived regardless as to whether they have it or not.

very poor experience. They run a couple of checks on me if I am a resident here. I went to M&S Meadowhall branch on 20th the Sat in August. Asked me so many unnecessary questions before they told me what the exchange rate was. So annoying.

I tried 2 days in a row to buy US dollars but ended up giving up because I really could not understand the lady on the second day at all. I usually find the customer service here very good but not today!

The 0800 operator had a very strong foreign accent, I could follow only with great difficulty, another reviewer said Philippines but I thought Latvian. She said the 24h delivery was not possible if you were travelling in next 3 days and gave me a Manchester number to ring. There are better rates for M&S bank customers, not sure which one this holidaymoney site quotes.

Online rate slightly better than that posted on Compareholidaymoney.com. Delivery efficient and they treat your payment from an M&S credit card as a purchase - so you get M&S vouchers plus a month to pay with no charge. DOWNSIDE - no email or communication confirming your order whatsover (really a disgrace nowadays when you've just committed £1,000), so I ended up having to phone them after 24 hours - and then still no email follow up!

I get euros every couple of months here, sometimes the rate is the best on the high st, sometimes its not. always friendly and give choice of note size. very pleased but just check if the rate is good before attending

Was going to order Euros week before @ 1.40 missed the opportunity and Euro started to slide each day saw the rate of 134 and went to my nearest branch to get £750 worth only got rate of 132.25 was told 134 was for M&S customers only. Worth watching out for Asda was 133.5

Could not understand the operator! It seems that the call centre is in Manila, in the Phillipines??????????? Gave up trying

Ordered euros over the telephone. As I am a M&S card holder I was happy with the rate offered. I ordered £500.00 in euros for free home delivery and the helpful lady asked me what mix of notes I wanted. Euros arrived on the day stated and in the mix of notes I had requested. Very pleased with the transaction. Would use again if I was exchanging £500.00 or more.

I am an M and S card holder. They offered a very competitive rate and the Euros were delivered on the day and within the time slot requested. I would recommend their service.

Excellent service from beginning to end.

Very good service for home delivery especially if you have M&S credit card which you can order cash on without penalty.

Can't fault the service at Taunton. Greeted I. A friendly manner & very efficient! As for the non card holder RATE not being shown on the website - it's definitely not True! It's there for all to see! Keep it up M & S & thanks for being so kind! Credit where it's due!

10/10 for service. Money delivered before the stated date of delivery a rarity! will definitely use the online service again. one little observation the online web do not give customers the choice of requesting denominations of their choice. I got landed with a lot of 100 euro notes which are not readily accepted across Europe so have been asked to take them to M&S money shop and exchange them for smaller notes.
29th June 2015
Good rate, great service.
26th June 2015
Very good service first time would definitely use again good mix of notes
9th June 2015
Excellent rate. Ordered online, delivered in less than 24 hours as promised. No fee. Can't fault the service. Well done M&S! :)

Bit disappointed after seeing the rate of 3.92 for lira was told this was only for marks and Spencer credit card customers. No sign of this anywhere on website and when I did go to buy them only had £144 worth so didn't get any have to go back but was disappointed not at the rate advertised.

Have got my euros at M&S in the past was disappointed this time when they gave card holders only the better rate. This was not advertised on the Internet and also not visible in the store until staff pointed it out.I don't hold a card I do shop in M&S a lot which is discrimination to customers, I therefore went elsewhere and got my euros at the cardholders rate. Very disappointed with M&S. The difference was only 10 euros but it was down to principle.

Used Marks and Spencer card so got the higher rate. Staff in local metro centre store always friendly and efficient. Got a good mix of denominations in a handy little wallet. Have never ordered them for delivery though as local store only 5 minutes away. Always find Marksys competitve with their exchange rate and always find in the top 3. Recommend : )
11th April 2015
Good rate & delivered on agreed date.
12th February 2015
Very efficient and friendly service in the Aberdeen store. Preferential rates for M & S cardholders is a membership benefit and non-members must surely expect to receive an inferior rate. Anyone looking for such membership benefits needs to join the relevant club/group.

Excellent service & competitive rate, very pleasant man who served me Friday evening 19/9 !! will always check M&S Merry Hill first.

Brilliant service from friendly competent staff in Cribbs Causeway branch. All done briskly and efficiently followed by a cheery "Enjoy your trip". Aus dollars handed over in my choice of denominations. Thanks again M & S.

Beware the rate advertised is only for M&S card holders. the rate drops considerably if you do not have an M&S card.
Marks and Spencer are one of the most recognisable brand names in the UK high street and have been offering foreign currency services online and in their stores for many years. Marks and Spencer launched their banking service in July 2012.Visit Website
