What To Do With Currency?

There are a few options available to you if you have a significant amount of foreign currency, and aren’t sure what to do with it. You can either sell the currency back to us as soon as you wish, or you could hold on to the currency with two objectives in mind. The first would be to watch our rates and decide to sell the currency back to us when you feel the rate is at its best. The second would be to keep your currency safe until you decide to travel to that region or country again.

How To Sell Currency

We will buy back your currency and pay you Canadian dollars. All you have to do is:

  1. Decide how much currency you want to sell back to Travelex.
  2. Choose to mail through your currency, or visit one of our retail stores across the country.
  3. Receive Canadian dollars back in the form of a check or in cash, based on the day’s rate.
