Travel Money

Can I choose the currency denominations I would like in my travel money order?

No, you can’t specify denominations as part of your order.

 

Normally you’ll receive a mixture of high and low denominations, depending on the availability of the currency you order.

Just collected my Croatia Kuna from Tesco's and I'm not happy about the large denomination notes.  Only got £200 worth to keep me going for the first few days, but I've been given 2 x 500 3 x200 and 1 x 100.  Is this going to be a probelm buying the odd beer or two with a 500 kuna note?  

Hi @MJGamble, I'm sorry to read that you're unhappy with the denominations we've given you when you've made your order. Depending on the currency ordered and the popularity, we can sometimes be limited in what we can offer, but I'll make sure to pass on your comments to our Travel Money team.

 

I hope it doesn't cause too many issues and you still have a good time in Croatia!

Hello,

I ordered 1200 Euro to share between 3 travellers for a trip to France.  Half the money received was in 100 Euro notes with the remainder including 6 x 50 Euro notes.  Whilst on the trip to Quimper (the administrative centre for all of Brittany) it proved impossible to change any of the 100 Euro notes at any bank or Bureau de Poste.

On my return I explained the predicament to the advisor on the help line.  Their response was that it was legal tender and there was nothing they could or would do to help me.  I am now left with 6 x 100 Euro notes 'not fit for purpose'.  Tesco, please note that the Post Office foreign exchange service recognise this issue and do not issue notes above 50 Euro.

Imagine the response if I were to go into a Tesco store and pay for a bagette using a £100 note?
