You did it! You got the best exchange rate by buying your travel money online and you had the most fantastic holiday abroad but now what do you do with your leftover travel cash?
According to some studies, Brits have an average of £110 worth of foreign currency in their homes which have been stuck in a jar or left in a "holiday money purse" for next time. The reason for this hoarding culture of leftover currency is primarily because travellers don't know where they can easily change the travel cash back to pounds and at a good buy back rate.
So, what is the buy back process of leftover travel currency? Foreign exchange specialists that offer a travel money buy back service agree to buy back unused foreign currency and switch the funds back into pounds sterling post holiday.
You will be offered an exchange rate, just like when you bought your travel money to begin with and this means you could end up with less or more as a result of exchange rate movements. Savvy travellers should always shop around for the best deal when it comes to buying and selling your foreign currency. The Currency Club specialises in foreign exchange online and so even when it comes to buy back rates, we will offer you the best deal. We will even buy leftover currency that you have bought from another supplier!
The Currency Club's buy back process is super efficient and easy. Simply place your buy back order online via our website. Confirm which travel currency you wish to send back, how much and the currency denominations. You will then receive a buy back order confirmation including an indicative buy back rate. Upon receipt of your currency, we then apply that day's best buy back rate and transfer the pounds equivalent to your personal bank account. You can now put that leftover currency to good use!
One thing to note is that foreign exchange coins are rarely bought back so remember before leaving your destination to use as many coins as possible or exchange them for a notes! If you still have some coins left best to donate them to charity.
Hopefully, you now don't have to worry about hoarding leftover travel currency ever again!!
