What we do

When you come back from an overseas trip you may bring back beautiful memories of great times, souvenirs and maybe even a great tan, but being left with foreign cash feels like such a waste!

We compare all the top UK travel money exchange companies that offer buy back rates, including many of the high street bureau de change and supermarket travel money services to get the best rates and the most back from your unspent travel money so you don't end up feeling too short-changed.

It’s simple, you choose a provider then post your currency and get paid pounds directly into your UK bank account.

Basically, buy back is when you sell your unused foreign currency in exchange for pounds sterling. You will be offered an exchange rate, just like when you bought your travel money in the first place.

With the fluctuating exchange rates, you run the risk of getting less money back if the exchange rate has fallen or you could be in luck and get a better rate than you bought it at! If the rate has dropped you could think about waiting and converting your travel money back at a later date. Having a buy back comparison tool at your fingertips makes this easy! Not only can we show you what the best rate is today, but we can show you the trends of the buy back rates for each currency over the last month so you can make an informed decision. Our buy back rates are updated every few minutes so the information you see is always the latest rates for buy back.

If you are selling your unused travel cash, take into consideration:

Different buy back providers may vary slightly, but the two main costs that need to be taken into consideration are:

The buy back exchange rate: The highest exchange rate will get you the most pounds for your currency (the opposite of when you exchanged your travel money in the first place!)

Delivery costs: You will need to pay to send your currency to the buy back provider, using recorded delivery.

If you want to sell foreign currency you will often get the best rates from an online provider, so use our comparison tool above to see today’s best buy back rate. We compare buy back rates from all the top UK travel money exchange companies, including many of the high street bureau de change and supermarket travel money services on Euros, US dollars, Turkish Lira and Thai Baht, and many other currencies.

It’s simple...

  • Find the provider with the best buy back rate for the currency you want to sell
  • Fill in a simple form
  • Print the packing slip
  • Post your currency and postage slip to the provider. (recorded delivery)
  • Once the travel money provider has received your currency they will transfer the pounds straight into your account

Note, this may vary for some providers, this is the general process.

No, but when you select a currency on our conversion tool above, we display the providers that will buy back that foreign currency.

Not guaranteed. Many providers only confirm a rate when the foreign currency arrives with them. To confirm, please check the terms and conditions of the provider.

The currency buy back rate you receive will be the rate on the day your currency is received. This rate does not usually change significantly daily so it is advisable to get your currency in the post as soon as you can. It does mean you may receive slightly more or slightly less than the amount quoted today

Yes! When posting your foreign currency, most providers recommend you use Royal Mail's Special Delivery service which is fully insured and guaranteed to arrive on the next working day. Packages sent by Special Delivery go through a more secure process than regular mail and can be tracked from the moment they enter the system right up to the point of delivery where they must be signed for by the supplier. In the unlikely event something happens to your package, Royal Mail will refund you the entire insured amount plus postage costs.

When you purchase Special Delivery we highly recommend you take out the option to insure your package for up to £2,500. You'll be given a receipt which contains the number you need for tracking and proof of postage. Keep this document safe! If you are sending more than £2,500 worth of euros, it makes sense to split the amount into multiple packages and insure each package for an appropriate amount.

The cost of Special Delivery varies depending on the weight of the package and the amount you've insured the package for. To make sure your currency is securely packaged, providers usually recommend you use a plastic tamper-proof envelope, you can get these from the Post Office when you purchase Special Delivery. If you have any queries about the safety and security of your package, just ask at the Post Office they can check your package before you send it and they will advise you on if it's sufficiently and suitably packaged and insured.

If the travel money provider you have chosen allows it, you can exchange one currency into another type, e.g. Euros into US Dollars. The rates we compare are for when you want to sell currency and convert it into pounds.

If you send your order by post, you will usually be paid via bank transfer within 3 working days from the date it arrives with the provider. For most orders paid in person, you will usually be paid immediately in cash. This is usually the case, please check with the provider.

No, Most currency providers will not buy back coins, mainly because they are expensive to post and not easy to exchange. Also, take note that some providers will not take some smaller or specific notes, check with the provider before sending any unused currency.

Occasionally, just the same as the UK, a country issues a new note and withdraws the old one. The withdrawn currency is usually accepted for a while after the issue of the new currency to allow for a smooth transition to take place, but eventually, the old currency will cease to be legal tender. After that time, the old notes cannot usually be exchanged.

If you're not sure whether the foreign money you have can still be exchanged, it is best to contact the supplier beforehand and they will gladly help you to determine whether your notes can be accepted.
