Pre-order foreign currency

Buy foreign currency and traveller's cheques before leaving.

Having cash makes arrival at your destination easier allowing you to pay for incidental expenses like taxi fares or a quick meal. The smart thing to do is order or buy your foreign currency in advance.

Of course, traveller's cheques are a secure and convenient way to carry 'money'. American Express Traveller's Cheques can be cashed free of charge at over 65,000 locations globally.

A combination of travel card, traveller's cheques, foreign cash, credit cards and debit card will ensure you’re covered for most possibilities.
