Price Match

How our price match works

If you find another provider based within three 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 make your purchase.

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 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 other 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

You can also ask one of the friendly in-store team if you're unsure of the process - we'll be happy to help See full terms and conditions

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.

Can't make it into a store? Order online and you can either collect it in-store or we'll deliver your travel money direct to your door. We know you're busy organising your holiday so we've made it simple for you to get your holiday money, when and how it works for you.
