The currency experts that you can trust.

In The Beginning


Back in 1976, Lloyd Dorfman opened our very first store on Southampton Row in London. Fast forward 40 years and now we serve over 37 million customers every year! We boast over 1,400 stores and 1,250 ATMS in 26 countries around the world, from major airports to key tourist locations, seaports and railways.

In The Beginning

Travelex Today

Over 40% of the world’s travellers (that’s 1.7 billion passengers a year!) pass through airports where Travelex operates, including the major gateways at Amsterdam, Beijing, Frankfurt, London, Hong Kong, Mumbai, New York, Paris, Sydney and Tokyo.

As well as foreign exchange, we provide remittances and online international payments through partnerships with Western Union and Ozforex, as well as sourcing and distributing FX banknotes for central banks and international financial institutions.

We are continuing to grow every day around the world, by expanding into new markets (both organically and through acquisition) and by investing in new stores, ATMs and online platforms.
