Southampton Airport Travel Money
For this reason, we’ve put together a quick guide to the options to help you decide which method is best suited to you.
What’s on offer?
The method you choose will usually depend on where you’re off to and who you’ll travel with. The ever fluctuating exchange rates will often influence your decision too, as will the availability of “Buy Back” options. The good news is, you no longer have to take your hard earned cash into your travel agents in exchange for multiple denominations of your desired currency.
So let’s start saving you time, hassle and most importantly, money by giving you the lowdown on your travel money options.
Currency Exchange at Southampton Airport
There is one MoneyCorp bureau de change desk at Southampton Airport where you can purchase currency and you’ll find the desk just on the inside the entrance to the terminal.
- Pre-order your currency online and pick it up from the desk when you arrive. This way you can lock in the online exchange rate at the time of purchase, protecting you from possible fluctuations, and it saves you some time in the airport. Win Win!
- Check to see if the bureau you choose offers “buy back” rates, allowing you to exchange your currency back to sterling at the same rate, should they have fluctuated – and not in your favour!
- Look out for providers who offer a free home delivery of currency. This allows you to buy online and wait for it to arrive a few days later; so probably best for those that like to be organised!
Prepaid Currency Cards
They are also great for teaching money management; you hear of many parents allowing their children to use them when holidaying together to teach them the concept of money! Sound good?
