Leftover currency FAQs

What exchange rate will I get?

Currency rates can move substantially day-to-day and hour-to-hour. The rate used for your exchange is the rate available when we process your exchange. It is not the rate on the day you print your form, send it to us or when we receive delivery. Our current rates are published here.

Do you buy back coins?

We only accept bank notes – not coins.

Can I exchange more than one currency at the same time?

Yes. You can send back as many different currencies as you like, as long as they are from the list of currencies we accept – see step 3 of our buy back form for the full list of accepted currencies. Simply fill out the form, put the different notes in an envelope, and send them to us by secure delivery. We’ll do the rest!

Do you buy back all currencies?

We accept most major currencies but we can’t buy back every single currency as there are restrictions in place on certain currencies. The list of currencies we accept is listed in step 3 of our buy back form.

We’re also unable to accept any legacy currencies from the countries now using the euro. If you want to double check which countries are using the euro,  visit the European Central Bank.

If you’re not sure if we accept a currency, please feel free to give our friendly team a call on +44 (0) 330 123 1432. Our phone lines are open from 9am-5pm Monday-Friday (closed weekends and Bank Holidays).

Can I exchange old or discontinued currencies?

Unfortunately we aren’t able to buy any leftover currency that’s no longer in circulation.

Can I use the buy back service if I didn't buy my currency from ICE?

Yes! You don’t have to be an ICE customer to sell your travel money to us.  

What's your 90 day buy back offer?

Our 90 day buy back offer is for our customers who have ordered travel money for home delivery. We know it’s an uncertain time right now, so as long as you send your banknotes back to us within 90 days of your order, we’ll buy them back at exactly the same rate. This means you won’t lose out on any money if your plans change. You don’t even need to send the full amount back to us, so if you have a small amount of currency left you can still send it back and get pounds back in your pocket. You don’t need to worry about taking too much currency on your travels and can enjoy peace of mind that we’ll take it back at the end!
