Is this Travelex rate a good deal?

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to avoid fees for taking out cash with my ATM debit card. I was planning to get cash from the airport to pay the driver and for pocket money.

On the Travelex website, if you order cash online and pick up at airport, it states you can get it commission free and earn BA miles.

https://www.travelex.co.uk/BA/MoneyNet.asp?Brand=BATM&App=MoneyNet

Their US dollars rate is $1.5577 versus Yahoo and XE.com's rate of $1.66. Is this an error or is Travelex giving a better rate?

Also, I recall a couple years ago seeing a Travelex window near the baggage claim area in Terminal 5. I believe that is the terminal which I will be arriving into Heathrow (flying BA). When I go through various pickup points for the Travelex cash, there is no location for "Arrivals Airside". Can anyone please indicate the correct selection if you are familiar with this?


thanks.
