Price Match

How our Price Match works

If you find a better exchange rate advertised by another provider within three miles of your chosen Tesco Travel Money bureau, on the same day, we'll match it.

Only applies in store on a like for like basis on sell transactions and does not apply to any exchange rate advertised online or by phone. Not available in conjunction with any other offer. We reserve the right to verify the rate you have found and the three mile distance (using an appropriate route planning tool).

See full terms and conditions below.

Currency Buy Back

When you get home, we'll buy your travel money back

Let us turn your unspent holiday money into pounds. It couldn't be simpler.

Just pop into one of our in-store travel money bureaux when you get back to the UK and we'll buy back your unwanted currency. We buy back in all the currencies we sell in most banknote values (this includes Travellers Cheques and the Multi-currency Cash Passport™ too).

It doesn't matter where you bought your money, we'll still buy it back - even if you didn't buy it from a Tesco Travel Money bureau.

Buy online. A more convenient option.

Order online and you can collect your travel money from one of our in-store bureaux or selected customer service desks. Or we can deliver it direct to your door.
