Ordering foreign money

This Online Terms and Conditions apply to the online money ordering service that Travelex offers through the Website (the "Service"). The Service includes the online booking of banknotes in foreign currencies and prepaid travel cards ("Cash Passport"), collectively referred to as "Travel Money".

Using the Service

The Service is available only to persons over 18 who are resident in and have access to the Service from within the Netherlands. The Service may only be used to reserve Travel Money for holiday or business travel and not for speculative, investment or other purposes. By reserving our Travel Money you confirm that you have read and understood the Online Terms and Conditions and that you agree to be bound to and comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

The Service is only available for the currencies listed at any time on the online ordering screens. All orders are subject to a maximum of €7.500 per person, per order and a minimum value of €50 per person, per order.

The availability of currencies may also depend on further monetary limits, currency exchange restrictions and the compliance of all applicable laws and regulations by customers, including those in the field of combating money laundering. (There are no frequent flyer points provided in connection with the use of this Service.)

* For our MasterCard® Cash Passport there is an initial minimum charge amount equal to the value of €100.

Note: The rates available on the Website are displayed separately from the rates available in our stores and can therefore vary. You can not get our Website rates in our stores unless you have ordered your currency in advance via the Website.

Placing an order

When you place your order you have the option to choose what time you would like to collect it. You can also state which office you would like to collect it from, choosing from the offices listed on the online reservation form. 

You can order up to 14 days before the collection date. USD and GBP can be collected after 30 minutes of ordering, as long as we receive and confirm your order before 15.00 CET. All other currencies can be picked up after 3 days**, as long as we receive and confirm your order by 13.00 CET.

** Our commitment of 3 days applies to orders that are placed on Monday-Thursday. If a currency is ordered between 13.00 CET on a Friday and 13:00 on a Sunday, the order will be ready for collection on the following Wednesday.

To place an order, follow the instructions on the booking screen. You should complete your order within 20 minutes of clicking on the booking screen. Otherwise your session will expire and you will have to restart the order process.

You can correct any errors on your order up to the point that you click "reserve my currency now" on the reservation details screen. You do not need to enter payment information on your online booking form as you pay when you collect your order.

Exchange rates: The exchange rates we specify online are real time quotes and are subject to change. The online rate is applicable on the date that you order, unless the exchange rate calculated in the establishment at the time of your collection is more favourable. If this is the case we will offer you the more favorable rate.

We reserve the right at all times to ask for more information from you to enable us to complete your order and/or to comply with requirements of regulators. By placing an order you confirm that the specified data is correct in all respects. The system displays a confirmation screen where the data of your order is listed. This receipt shows that your order is confirmed. We can at any time, for whatever reason, refuse to process your order in whole or in part. A contract between you and us is only established after we send you a confirmation email stating that your order has been accepted. Please print a copy of the confirmation screen for your records, as well as a print out of the confirmation email, since this is the only copy of your order.

Retrieving your Travel Money

You must pay for your Travel Money when you pick it up from one of our stores. Depending on your method of payment you may be charged a fee (see below). Orders can only be collected by the person named in your Travelex confirmation email. Orders can only be collected during the opening hours of the collection establishment. Information regarding the operation hours of the collection location will be sent to you at the time of the order and can be found on the Website. Make sure you have enough time to pick up your order before you travel.

You must show a valid passport or European ID card for identification purposes when collecting your order. Depending on your order, Travelex reserves the right to ask for further information and identification (such as proof of your home address) in accordance with its anti-money laundering policy. The name on the debit card used to make the purchase must match those on the credentials used.

In order to fulfill its anti-money laundering obligations and other legal obligations related to its internal risk and fraud policy, Travelex reserves the right to request a copy of your ID at the time of collection, which will only be used during purchase to meet obligations under anti-money laundering legislation and other legislation. Unless required by law, Travelex will not disclose information to third parties.

Cash Passport

There is an initial minimum charging amount of €100 for Cash Passports.

If you buy a Cash Passport, you are subject to the Terms and Conditions of the issuer of the Cash Passport, Wirecard Card Solutions Ltd ("WDCS").

Voorwaarden

These conditions are also provided at the collection facility or enclosed with your Cash Passport. Read them carefully when you receive your Cash Passport. By collecting and using your Cash Passport you agree to be bound to the conditions. For clarity, these conditions apply from the moment you collect and begin to use your Cash Passport.

You should also confirm that you have received information about your Travelex Cash Passport. 

Fees 

The Service itself is free of charge. You pay for your order when you retrieve it. You can pay for orders with most major credit cards or debit cards that are issued in the Netherlands. The card must be in your name and have sufficient balance to pay for your order and any applicable fees.

Credit card or prepaid debit cards are subject to handling fees and card issuer fees. If you choose to pay with Maestro, there will be no handling fee. If you pay by credit card or prepaid debit card, there will be a handling fee of €5, plus 3% of the value of the order. This shows up in your credit card order summary as "fee" or "credit card fee". 

Promotions

Countdown Offer

A "Countdown Offer" is an online promotion of Travelex which is available for a short period of time (for example, a one-hour pound-sterling promotion or an hour and a half dollar-rate price promotion) (also called a "Currency Happy Hour") whereby the clock on the WebsIte (the "Timer") counts down the offer.

From time to time Travelex may offer Countdown Offers on the Website, subject to the following conditions.

  1. A Countdown Offer is only valid for online orders on the Website during the time indicated on the Timer. Due to the time required to upload rates to the Website, the countdown may be available up to 10 minutes before the Timer is due to start, and up to 5 minutes after the Timer has expired. This is to ensure that the Countdown Offer is available throughout the period of the promotion.
  2. A Countdown Offer may cover more than one currency at the same time, taking into account the time limits specified by the timer.
  3. In order to qualify for the Countdown Offer rate all you need to do is enter the amount of the particular currency which is subject to the Countdown Offer in the ordering screen – the promotional rate will automatically apply to your order should you complete your order by clicking "Buy My Currency Now" within the time limits indicated by the Timer.
  4. If you do not press the "Buy My Currency Now" button before the Timer expires, you will receive the following message: “A rate change has occurred, please check your order summary as it may have changed”. Should you wish to proceed with your order you will be charged the new rate and not the promotional rate under the Countdown Offer.

Promotion Codes 

From time to time we or our affiliates may provide you with a special Promotion Code for use on the Website. Please note that some promotion codes may only be available for a limited time. We do not guarantee the availability of Promotion Codes or the terms of any such offers.

If you have been provided with a Promotion Code by an affiliate, please refer to the affiliates Terms and Conditions for details of that offer.

Your right to cancel
