Foreign Exchange Services for travellers

American Express offers a range of essential foreign exchange and travel products when
you’re away from home.

Foreign Currency
Enjoy competitive exchange rates and low fees on over 50 foreign currencies, including many
exotic currencies. You can even return unused currency with a Buy Back Guarantee if you
purchase your foreign currency at one of our UK airport locations. Order foreign currency online
for competitive online rates and 0% commission on foreign currency and foreign Travellers Cheques.

Travellers Cheques
Protect your money by carrying American Express Travellers Cheques instead of cash. They never
expire and are accepted at over one million locations globally. If a Travellers Cheque is lost or
stolen, American Express will send replacement funds virtually anywhere in the world, usually within
24 hours. Order Travellers Cheques online for competitive rates.  

Phone Cards
Stay in touch with home or the office when you travel. We sell international and domestic phone
cards that can be used across the globe to help you avoid surprises on your phone bill.

Buy Back Guarantee
Pay just £3.50 for our Buy Back Guarantee when you purchase your foreign currency at an American
Express location in the UK and we'll buy back your unused currency commission free, and at the
same rate purchased when you return. Please note that Buy Back Guarantees are currently not
available for online orders.
