About Virgin Money Travel Money

Who provides Virgin Money with their travel money?

To offer our customers competitive rates and 0% commission on their travel money, we've teamed up with Travelex. Serving 37 million customers, and with over 35 years' experience, our partnership with Travelex lets us offer you stress-free, next day delivery at a great rate.

About your order

Can I get my money in small or large notes?

Unfortunately we can't offer specific notes, but you should get a mix of small and large notes. The exact denomination often depends on the currency we have available at the time of your order.

Are there any fees when buying travel money from Virgin Money?

If you choose to collect from a Virgin Money Store or order over £500 to be delivered to your home, then no fees apply. If your home delivery order is between £150 and £499.99, there's a delivery charge of £4.95.

You will not be charged a card processing fee by us if you choose to pay by Maestro, MasterCard® Debit Card or Visa Debit Card. However, if you choose to pay by MasterCard Credit Card or Visa Credit Card, a handling fee of 1.5% of the order value will be applied. This is shown on your order summary as a "Card processing fee".

Please note: your card issuer may apply an additional charge when using your credit card. Any additional charge will not appear on your order total but will appear on your card statement.

About your delivery

What do I need to bring with me if I 'Click & Collect'?

We've made 'Click & Collect' as easy as possible. All you need to bring to your local Virgin Money Store is:

  • The credit or debit card you used to order.
  • A valid passport, a UK photocard driving license or EU ID card.
  • Your order number.

Can I buy travel money from a Virgin Money Store?

You can order currency to collect in Store but we don't offer a cash-on-demand service. The easiest way to order your travel money is either online or over the phone, at home or in Store. If you order before 2pm from Monday to Thursday it will be ready to collect on the next working day. Orders received after 2pm, or at weekends, will be ready to collect after two working days.

Will my delivery be secure in the post?

Yes. Your order will be sent using secure Royal Mail Special Delivery which prides itself on a “consistently excellent quality of service”. We will only ever deliver to your debit/credit card billing address and you will be required to sign upon delivery.

What happens if I miss the delivery?

You will need to visit your local Royal Mail depot to collect your order. You will need to take with you:

  • The calling card left by Royal Mail.
  • A valid passport, UK photocard driving license or EU ID card.
  • A recent utility bill showing your name and billing address.

Can I cancel my travel money order?

If you choose to 'Click & Collect' you can cancel your order at any point. You will be charged £10 if you cancel less than 24 hours before collection and we'll deduct this from your refund.

If you choose home delivery you can't cancel or change an order once it has been confirmed. You can, however, return your unused currency to your local Travelex branch and they'll buy it back.

How quickly will I get my money?

With 'Click & Collect' and home delivery you can order your money up to 30 days in advance. If you order before 2pm Monday to Thursday your order will be delivered on the following day. See below for other variations.
