All orders are subject to a minimum value of CAD $250.00 and a maximum value of CAD $2,500.00 per person per day. Product availability may also be subject to further monetary limits and currency exchange restrictions. Customers must comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including those relating to anti-money laundering regulations.

Placing an Order
When you place an order you will be given the option to place an order of Travel Money for store pick-up or delivery to your home.
If you choose to place an order for store pick-up, you can order up to 21 days in advance of the pick-up date. Provided we receive and subsequently confirm your order by 1.00 p.m. local time, all orders will be available for pick up at your selected pick up location on the next working day. Please note that store opening hours may vary. For further information, please see section entitled “Collecting Your Travel Money Order” below.
If you choose to place an order for home delivery, you can select a specific business day for delivery up to 21 days in advance. For further information, please see section entitled “Home Delivery” below.
To place an order, follow the instructions on the ordering screen. You are able to correct errors or cancel your order up to the point at which you click on "Make Payment Now" on the Payment Page. You will be required to pay for the Travel Money at the time of your order using your credit card. The exchange rates we quote are subject to change. Your order will be subject to the exchange rate (as set by us) that appears on the ordering screen at the time we receive your order.*
*Exchange rates quoted in the newspapers are not indicative of exchange rates that the average customer can secure. The rates published in the newspapers are usually “spot rates” available on amounts of $1 million or more transferred electronically between banks.
You must provide the information requested during the ordering process for us to process your order. We reserve the right to request further information from you at any time to enable us to complete your order and/or to comply with regulatory requirements. We will use certain procedures to authenticate each transaction and may, at any time, decline to process your order or any part thereof for any reason. By placing an order, you confirm that the details contained in the order are correct in all respects.
The system will display a confirmation screen setting out the details of your order. This confirms our receipt of your order. A contract between you and us is formed only when we send you a confirmation email that your credit card payment has been accepted. Please print a copy of the confirmation screen for your records and print or store the confirmation email in a safe place, as it may be your only record of your transaction. If you do not receive a confirmation number and / or email, it is likely that your order has not been received or that your order has not been accepted by Travelex. In this case, please contact our customer services department in order to verify this.
Collecting your Travel Money Order
If you choose to place an order for store pick-up, orders can only be collected by the cardholder from the Travelex Canada location chosen during ordering. Pick-up is subject to the hours of operation of the Travelex store location. Details of the store’s opening hours will be provided to you at the time of your order and can also be obtained on the Website. Please remember to allow sufficient time to make your pick-up before departing.
We use a selection of delivery agents to ensure your order is delivered in the most efficient way. All home delivery orders are sent by either FedEx Priority Overnight or Canada Post Xpresspost (unless we advise you otherwise) (our “Delivery Agent”) and only to your credit card billing address. Please note that delivery times may vary. A valid landline home telephone number is required for home delivery.
For details and exceptions of the service provided by FexEx please click here. Canada Post Xpresspost does not offer Saturday deliveries for home delivery to destinations in the Yukon or Whitehorse. For details and exceptions of the service provided by Canada Post please click here.
Please note that we do not deliver to post office (“PO”) boxes.
Replacements and Returns
If you fail to accept delivery for any reason and wish your order to be re-delivered it will be your responsibility to pay any additional delivery charges.
If you do not receive your order by the specified delivery date or you receive the order and it is incorrect because of a fault on our part, you should notify us of the non-delivery or error and we will resend the order or correct the error by delivering a replacement order, as the case may be. In the event we deliver a replacement order, you agree to return the original order (if received) to us through our Delivery Agent within 14 days and we will reimburse the return postage to you. If you fail to return the original order, you authorise Travelex to charge your credit card for the amount of the replacement order less the amount of the error, if any.
If the value of the order delivered to you is greater than the order you placed with us, you will return the excess to us through our Delivery Agent within 14 days. If the delay in delivery or error is due to our fault, we will reimburse the return postage to you.
In the event you are entitled to a return or a replacement, please contact customer services on 1-888-489-9901 (Monday to Friday 8.00 a.m. - 8.00 p.m. and 9am to 1pm Saturday Eastern Time) to arrange this.
Order details cannot be amended once you have clicked on “Make Payment Now” on the Payment Page.
In accordance with the terms and conditions outlined below, orders may be cancelled by calling customer services on 1-888-489-9901 (Monday to Friday 8.00 a.m. - 8.00 p.m. and 9am to 1pm Saturday Eastern Time) or by emailing us at [email protected].
Store Pick-Up Orders
If you have placed an order for pick-up by you at a Travelex store, this order can be cancelled up to 24 hours after the order is placed (as long as you have not already picked up your order) and we will refund you the full amount you paid for your order, excluding any applicable card issuer charges. These card issuer charges are separate to any charges made by Travelex and as such, are levied directly by your credit or debit card issuer. For further information, please see section entitled “Charges” below.
If you cancel your order for store pick-up more than 24 hours after your order is placed, but before the order has been picked up, Travelex will refund your order at the day’s cost rate (i.e. the exchange rate at which we obtain our currency from our supplier) on the day of cancellation. Please note that as exchange rates fluctuate daily, we cannot guarantee that you will obtain the same exchange rate at which the order was placed. In no circumstances will Travelex refund you more than the amount you originally paid for your order.
If you have placed an order for store pick-up and you fail to collect your order from the pre-selected Travelex location within 72 hours of the pick-up time then your order will be marked as “non-collected” and will be treated in the same way as a cancellation made more than 24 hours after your order was placed in accordance with the paragraph above.
If you have placed an order for home delivery, this order can be cancelled up to 24 hours after your order is placed (as long as your order has not been dispatched for delivery) and we will refund you the full amount you paid for your order, excluding any applicable card issuer charges. These card issuer charges are separate to any charges made by Travelex and as such, are levied directly by your credit or debit card issuer. For further information, please see section entitled “Charges” below.
If you cancel your order for home delivery more than 24 hours after your order is placed, but at least 2 business days prior to your scheduled delivery date, Travelex will refund your order at the day’s cost rate (i.e. the exchange rate at which we obtain our currency from our supplier) on the day of cancellation. Please note that as exchange rates fluctuate daily, we cannot guarantee that you will obtain the same exchange rate at which the order was placed. In no circumstances will Travelex refund you more than the amount you originally paid for your order.
Once an order has been dispatched for home delivery, or has been picked up from a Travelex store, it cannot be cancelled. If you wish to return an order that has been delivered to your home or that you have picked up we can buy it back from you at the Travelex retail exchange rate of the day such order is received by Travelex. Please note that as exchange rates fluctuate daily, we cannot guarantee that you will obtain the same exchange rate you received when you placed your order. Any delivery charges are non-refundable.
If you wish to return your order, either bring your order to a Travelex store or mail us your order (at your expense) enclosing a completed copy of the “Sell Us Your Currency” form. Please click on this link Sell Us Your Currency for full details of this service and for a copy of the relevant form.
Travelex shall process all refunds to the card account originally used to purchase your order within 30 days. The date on which the funds reach your card account will be dependant on the processing times of your card issuer. Please note that Travelex will not refund any cash advance charges made by your card issuer.
The provisions of this cancellation policy do not affect your statutory rights.
