                      Benefits of planning ahead

                      Buying your Turkish Lira before you travel can be a good idea, as you’ll be able to pay for essentials like food, drink, taxis and service tips as soon as you land.

                      Picking up your currency beforehand means you won’t need to worry about having to find an ATM when you arrive so you can just get on with enjoying your holiday. You’ll also be able to avoid paying charges on any cash withdrawals.

                      It’s also worth remembering that foreign exchange rates can fluctuate. When you buy your Turkish Lira in advance, you can be sure of the rate you are going to get. If you withdraw cash when you arrive in Turkey, you may not get the same exchange rate.

                        Get your currency when it’s convenient for you

                        Use Click & Collect and arrange to pick up your Turkish Lira 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 more.

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

                            Card fees and cancellations

                            Buying foreign currency using a credit or debit card

                            No matter how you purchase your travel money, whether it be in store, online or over the phone, you will not be charged any card handling fee by us. However, regardless of your card type, your card provider may apply fees, e.g. cash advance fees or other fees, so please check with them before you purchase your travel money.

                              Click & Collect cancellations

                              You can cancel a Click & Collect order any time prior to collection. We'll refund you with the full Sterling amount that you paid for your order, unless you cancel less than 24 hours before your collection date, in which case we'll charge a £10 late cancellation fee.

                              We are unable to refund any fees charged by your card issuer, so please contact them if you have any further queries.

                                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 and also the Multi-currency Cash Passport™.

                                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.

                                  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.

                                  Price Match 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. This is 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).
