Travelex Announces In-Store Pick-Up Option for Online Orders

Added Convenience to Provide Great Prices for Travellers

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 31, 2011) - The world leader in foreign currency is offering another convenient way for North American travellers to purchase currency prior to travelling abroad. In addition to Travelex's home delivery option when ordering online, globetrotters can now opt to pick-up their travel money from selected Travelex stores in almost 20 convenient locations throughout Canada, including many major airports.

"With nearly 200 stores in North America and counting, we're expanding our Travelex network to make the travel planning process as easy as possible for our customers," said Jon Dario, president of Travelex Currency Services Inc. "We want travellers to have options, particularly when they are piecing together the final components of their trip."

Customers who choose the store pick-up option when placing their order online have the advantage of accessing Travelex's competitive online prices on foreign currency as well as the company's Online Price Promise, which promises the lowest price on foreign currency or Travelex will refund the difference. In-store pick-up is now available at all of Travelex's walk-in stores and most major airports, including Toronto Pearson International Airport, Calgary International Airport and Edmonton International Airport. Orders placed online will be ready upon the travellers' arrival to the store, and pick up is free at both non-airport and airport locations.
