                    Benefits of planning ahead

                    With so many things to think about, getting ready for a holiday can be a bit of a juggling act. But by ordering your Pesos online before you travel, you can tick one big thing off your list.

                    Exchange rates can change so waiting until the last minute can limit your choice and arriving with some local cash means no searching for ATMs or banks.

                      Get your currency when it’s convenient for you

                      Use Click & Collect and arrange to pick up your Pesos as part of your weekly shop, either from a Tesco Travel Money bureau or selected customer service desks. Or, you could try our home delivery service – free on all online orders of £500 or over.

                      Exchange rates can change throughout the day and will vary depending on whether you are buying in store, online or over the phone.

                        Useful information about Mexico and the Peso (MXN)

                        Spending and exchanging Pesos in Mexico

                        While debit and credit cards are popular in the UK and other countries, some businesses in Mexico still prefer cash and in some cases don’t accept cards at all.

                        It’s worth keeping a supply of Peso coins and notes handy for when you need to buy essentials like bottled water or transport.

                        You can spot a local exchange bureau by keeping an eye out for the phrase, “Casa de Cambios,” which is literally translated as “house of changers.”

                          Facts about Mexican ATM machines

                          ATMs are popular in Mexico, although you may be charged a transaction fee when withdrawing your Pesos.

                          Withdrawal fees are typically around MX$1.50-MX$3.00 per transaction, but some machines charge no fee at all.

                          ATMs can commonly be found at banks and supermarkets. Helpfully, they typically display instructions in English.

                            Currency Denominations

                            • 1 Peso (MX$) is made up of 100 Centavos (¢)
                            • Centavos come in coins of 50, $1, 2$, $5 and $10
                            • Pesos come in banknotes of MX$20, MX$50, MX$100, MX$200, MX$500, and MX$1000
                            • Coins below 50¢ are rare to find these days, and many shops don’t handle small change
