How our Price Match works

If you find another provider based within 3 miles of your chosen in-store Tesco Travel Money bureau, advertising a better rate on the same day, let us know and we'll match it.

The Price Match is only available in store, not online or over the phone. It only applies to like-for-like transactions and must be requested before you buy.

The Price Match applies to foreign currency notes that your chosen Tesco Travel Money bureau de Change has in stock at the time of purchase, American Express Travellers Cheques and the Multi-Currency Cash Passport™ prepaid currency cards.

In the event of dispute, the three mile distance will be measured using an appropriate route planning tool acceptable to us both. We reserve the right to amend or withdraw the Price Match at any time. We will give reasonable notice of our amendment or withdrawal.

What you need to do

Simply give the following information to a member of our bureau de change staff, and we'll match the better rate:

  • The name and address of the foreign currency exchange provider that advertised the better rate
  • The better rate advertised by that other provider
  • The date and time the better rate was advertised (must be same day)
  • The type of currency and product
  • How much you want to exchange
