Shocking in-store exchange rate at Silverburn and bordering on deceitful with their advertised exchange rates.

Avoid at all costs

Bought £500 worth of US dollars

My wife and I went into our local Thomas Cook to purchase US Dollars. My wife asked for "£200 worth of dollars", and was given them at a rate of 1.1419.

90 minutes later I asked for £500 worth of US Dollars, and was given a rate of 1.2490!!!!

Because of how my wife requested the transaction she was given "the walk-in, daily rate" which is much lower than when I asked "what is the dollar rate?" I was quoted the higher online rate, which the assistant then had to honour.

This is hoodwinking practice is deception of the customer and is profiteering at best, if not fraud.

Bought 260 euros today - cost me £253.00.

Didn't bother to do the calculation at the Desk as I'd looked online & they are advertising £1 / 1.13eu.

Only when I have looked at my receipt have I realised the rate they have given me was 1.03eu / 1£.

VERY underhanded tactics - No wonder they are quick to stuff the receipt into the envelope & seal it!!

Last time I bother with THOMAS COOK.....

What a con! I looked online and it said 1.14 euro to the pound, my wife went into the shop and they only gave 1.10 . Last time I use Thomas Cook.

Last time I’ll use Thomas Cook. Bought euros in store and rate was 10 cents per euro less. Didn’t realise till I got home. Store did not advise of difference. Feel cheated!!!

Ordered a prepaid multi-currency card

2 May 2019

Mastercard customer service was pathetic!

The lady who sold us the card badly miss sold us this travel card and made it out to be amazing when realistically it was awful!

Doesn't like you to remove cash.

Honestly I'd think twise before using this card, go elsewhere.

Worst experience of my life and it ruined our holiday!

Bad experience from the start with Thomas Cook!

Cheers for nothing!!!!!

Foolishly I bought currency on store rather than ordering online and got exchange rate of 1.03 rather than 1.13 so lost £40. Feels a bii like a con trick

Clumsy, unreliable. Reload from the app doesnt always work, so I think I'll need to think of something else...
