Travelex Launches Online Price Promise on Its New Currency Exchange Website for Canadian Travellers

World's Largest Foreign Currency Provider Offers Online Purchase Benefits with Price Promise, as well as 0% Commission, Free Delivery and Free $0 Fee Buy Back

NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwire - Nov. 19, 2010) - Travelex, the world's largest non-bank foreign currency exchange provider, has announced the launch of its new, redesigned website backed by their new "Online Price Promise" available exclusively for online transactions at http://www.travelex.ca/.

Travelex's new Online Price Promise will match a lower published price on complete online foreign currency orders, inclusive of delivery, fees and charges, to ensure Travelex customers are receiving the greatest value for their dollars. For instance, if a customer locates a lower offer on another website on the same business day that they purchased at www.travelex.ca, they can simply contact a Travelex foreign exchange specialist within 14 days to receive the difference between the prices. Online Price Promise lets Travelex customers know they're receiving the best value compared to other comparable online offers.

Travelex online customers will not only receive the best price for online foreign money exchange, but also will benefit from 0% commission on transactions. An additional benefit is that website customers can take advantage of Travelex's "$0 Fee Buy Back" service, in the event they return with unused currency. According to market research, more than half of international travelers return from their trips with leftover currency. The $0 Fee Buy Back offer allows customers to return their leftover currency at any retail store within Canada and receive Travelex's best rate possible without any markup or fees and is available for free with all online purchases.

According to Jon Dario, president of Travelex Currency Services Inc., the website is an essential tool to meet the growing demand for pre-trip foreign currency exchange purchases.

"As the demand for pre-trip foreign currency purchases grows, our financially savvy clients are seeking convenience, but also don't want to pay a penny more than they need to for it," said Dario. "Our new website simplifies the search for the best currency exchange and we're looking forward to continuing to find new safe and smart ways to make the travel experience easier for our customers."

Dario also noted the difficulty North American travelers are having with their magnetic stripe credit and debit cards overseas, making it all the more essential that travelers purchase foreign currency before arrival.

With the launch of Travelex's new website, Canadian customers will also have improved transaction capability and receive their currency quicker with new next day delivery service – free of charge on Canadian orders!

Travelex's new website also features useful tools including a new and easy to use currency converter.
