Our review of HSBC travel money
Pros: What we like :
✅ Hassle-free home delivery of travel money.
✅ Home delivery is free on all orders.
✅ Click and collect allows you to collect in your local HSBC branch if home delivery is not an option.
Cons: What we like less:
✘ Generally not the most competitive exchange rates.
✘ Reviews of HSBC travel money services are low, swaying around the 2 out of 5 stars for service on popular consumer review sites.
✘ You must have an account with HSBC or Marks and Spencer Bank to order travel money with HSBC.
If you want to order travel money for home delivery, you just need to visit HSBC travel money website and you can place an order online.
You just need to enter the following information into a simple form:
- ✅ Your personal details
- ✅ The amount of pounds you’re exchanging into the foreign currency
- ✅ Select the currency you’re exchanging your pounds into
- and select how you want to pay.
- Select your preferred delivery option, whether you want your travel money delivered to your home or to a HSBC UK branch near you.
Then, once you have made the bank transfer and they have received the payment, they will send you your travel money.
Not usually, it can vary, but buying travel money in the branches sometimes works out more expensive. However, you can order online and get it delivered to a branch near you for collection if home delivery isn’t a suitable option.
