We recommend purchasing some travel money before you leave the UK. You can exchange money at a local post office or bank, or you can order your travel money from Thomas Cook Travel Money. Alternatively, you can order a travel money card, which offers an efficient way to carry money on holiday. With access to wholesale rates, we offer better rates than much of the high street, making your holiday spends stretch that little bit further.
