Travel FX – COMMON QUESTIONS
How do we offer such great rates?
As we are a broker we access wholesale rates that are updated every minute. Most banks and brokers set their rate in the morning and do not move it throughout the day. If there is a major exchange rate movement during the day you will only benefit from it through us.
Also we do not accept payment with Credit or Debit cards as this adds to the cost, we accept bank transfers only.
What is the minimum order?
The minimum order is £300 of your chosen currency.
What is the maximum order?
We apply no maximum order value.
Can I order multiple currencies at the same time?
No, each currency needs to be completed individually and a handling fee will apply to each order below £700.00 value.
We do not supply travellers’ cheques and Prepaid Cards.
How do I pay?
You can pay by bank transfer, internet or telephone banking, BACS or CHAPS. Faster Payments is a free service offered by most banks now and usually allows us to see your payment quicker than other methods. It can take up to 24 hours to show in our bank despite your bank’s reassurance to the contrary. It may have left your account but that does not mean that we can always see it in ours yet. We recommend use of this service if it is available. We do not accept cash payments into our accounts, card payments or Cheques under any circumstances.
Your internet banking will not find us under the “pay a company” option as it does not feature Limited companies. You should pay through the “pay a person “option.
If you have used us before it is ok to use your previous order number as a reference if you cannot change it.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY CARD PAYMENTS OR CHEQUES.
When do I pay?
We must receive your payment within 2 working days of your order being placed. No deliveries are despatched until we receive cleared funds. Order payments received by 12 midday may be despatched the same business day subject to availability. Order payments received after 12 midday may be despatched the following business day however neither of these are guaranteed
