Please call your bank to ensure that your card information is up-to-date and that you currently have funds available on your card. If you’re using a credit card, your card issuer may consider this transaction a cash advance so it may be necessary for you to speak with them.

  • My order was rejected, why did you take payment?

    If your order was rejected, the funds currently available in your account may have reduced by the value of your attempted order. This means that your card issuer has provided authorization for Travelex to take payment. As Travelex has rejected the order we won’t be taking the funds.
