Birmingham Airport Guide

buy foreign currency and travellers cheques : birmingham airport

You can buy foreign currency and travellers cheques online and get great rates and no commission, or you can buy it at the airport, not get as good rates and pay commission. That's the basic choice.

[See this birmingham airport news article on how bad the rates and charges at airports can be].

Buying Foreign Currency Online

You can buy your currency online via a number of foreign exchange companies. Each time we check the rates, including commission and delivery charges, we find that Travelex and the Post Office are the most competitive.

With Travelex you need to give 48 hours notice, but you can collect your currency from the airport if they have a desk their (as they do at Birmingham airport terminal 1, but not terminal 2). And with the Post Office you can pick between delivery, or you can pick your currency up at your local Post Office.

Buying Foreign Currency at Birmingham Airport

If you want to buy your currency at Birmingham airport, the good news is that there are currency exchange bureaus on both levels of both terminals, and they remain until the last flight has left the terminal.
