Buying back un-used currency

Exchange unused banknotes for sterling – in store or by post.

In store

When you return from your trip abroad, we'll buy back any foreign currency you haven't used. Our buy back service is commission free and available at both our Central London bureaux. In addition to all major and exotic currencies, we will also exchange many pre-Euro currencies, such as German Marks and Spanish Pesetas, at our Maddox Street bureau.

By post

Alternatively, you can post your banknotes to us. Please fill in our currency buy back form and send it, along with your currency, to either our Maddox Street or Bishopsgate bureau. We’ll convert the currency at the buy back exchange rate on the day we receive your currency and either credit it to your UK bank account, or send you a cheque. Be sure to send your currency using Royal Mail Special Delivery, and ensure it is appropriately guaranteed and insured.

For transactions with a sterling value of over £2500, please contact one of our traders on 020 7493 1300 or 020 7256 7457 prior to sending the currency.

THE RATES DISPLAYED ON OUR WEBSITE ARE ONLY AVAILABLE IF YOU ORDER AND RESERVE YOUR CURRENCY ONLINE FOR IN-STORE COLLECTION OR ROYAL MAIL SPECIAL DELIVERY. DIFFERENT RATES WILL APPLY IN STORE IF YOU DO NOT ORDER ONLINE.
