TUI travel money
As one of the UK's primary travel companies, TUI provides currency exchange as part of its service. That means you can order and receive your travel money before you leave for your destination. TUI offers fantastic rates on more than 50 international currencies without charging a penny for commission. So, chances are you'll be able to get the currency you're after, whether that's US dollars, or the Saudi riyal.
How do I buy TUI travel money?
TUI makes buying foreign currency quick and simple. Head to the TUI website and complete your order using the online form. Just select your chosen currency, enter the amount you want to buy and view the automatically applied exchange rate and the cost in pounds sterling. Then, choose whether you want your amount in cash or on a prepaid currency card, and hit 'Add to basket'. Finally, select your collection method and enter your card details.
Either collect your order within two working days from one of TUI's 600 UK branches, or get it delivered to your door the next working day. Just remember to order by 2pm if you can't wait two days. Or, if you're unable to collect your order within two days, TUI will hold your cash for seven days, giving you the time to fit the collection into your schedule.
Does TUI offer a buy-back scheme?
Yes. TUI operates a buy-back guarantee, so you don't need to worry about sticking to an exact budget while you're away. Just spend as much as you want to and transfer your travel money back into pounds sterling when you get home.
Does TUI offer a prepaid travel money card?
TUI's prepaid currency card is free to purchase and can be loaded with 13 currencies. These include the euro, Turkish lira, Thai baht, Mexican peso, Bulgarian lev, UAE dirham and US, Canadian and Australian dollar.
When you load it, you pay the currency exchange rate at that time, so you don't suffer from fluctuating rates. The travel card is powered by Mastercard, so you'll be able to use it on any Mastercard-approved cash machine or ATM.
TUI also has a dedicated travel money card app, which you can use to check your balance, top up your card, transfer funds and view previous transactions. TUI even provides users with two cards, so there's no need to panic if you lose one. Simply switch to your back-up card and carry on spending immediately.
