Our review of Tesco Travel Money
Pros: What we like :
✅ Tesco is a well known high street brand.
✅ Home delivery is free, when you spend £500 or more online.
Cons: What we like less:
✘ They have fewer currencies readily available than many of our providers.
✘ Generally not the most competitive exchange rates.
✘ Unlike some other supermarket brands, there are no benefits for Tesco Clubcard holders when buying travel money.
✘ Reviews of Tesco Bank Travel Money show both positive and negative reviews on popular consumer review sites, with an average of 2.5 stars out of five.
If you want to order travel money for home delivery, you just need to visit their 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 Tesco branch or bureau de change 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 often works out more expensive. However, you can order your currency online and get it delivered to a branch near you for collection if home delivery isn’t a suitable option. You can see the latest Tesco exchange rates (for online purchase) above, or look for the best exchange rates on our travel money comparison tool where we compare the rates from all the best travel money providers.
