Have used Grimsby branch for a number of years now. Order on line and collect a couple of days later. Never had a problem, could get slightly better rate on line with other providers, but prefer the local experience with very friendly staff

  • My currency arrived on time
  • I received the notes I requested
  • I would recommend Ramsdens to others

Very poor. They would not give us the Internet rate as only wanted £700 changed. Later my husband ordered this online and used my bank card. I later went to collect money with my bank card and passport and was refused. They would only give it to my husband as he had ordered it so he had to go down with his passport and MY bank card in order to collect. Will never use again!

  • I ordered £700 worth of Euros

Would not give us online rate for euros at shop as we only wanted £600 worth of euros they said had to get £1000’s worth before you get online rate so said no thanks, went to a travel agent and they matched Ramsdens online rate no problem, so won’t bother with Ramsdens again !!!!

Terrible value. Exchanged 260 euros today for £217.40. My mistake ! Have now realised I could have got more in many other stores. Do not exchange money back in these stores. Shop around !

Terrible experience. Put £200 on card but couldn't login to check balance. Rang up to explain which turned out to be a third party who couldn't help, but said they would refer it back to Ramsdens. Haven't heard anything back. Hopefully there will not be much on the card so I won't loose much. Have now gone with Revolut which lets you know immediately the card has been used with balance. Avoid Ramsdens like the plague.

  • I ordered a prepaid Euro card
  • Reloading the card was easy
  • The card was accepted everywhere that I used it
