How to buy foreign currency

You can order foreign currency online for bureau collection, get it delivered to your home or buy directly at an instore travel money bureau.

Prefer a pre-paid foreign currency card?

If you’d rather not carry lots of cash when travelling, the Sainsbury's Bank Travel Money Card™ Mastercard® might be a good option for you.

Load it with up to 15 foreign currencies then use it like a normal bank card at ATMs and in shops when you’re abroad. You can top it up any time on the app, online or at one of our instore bureau.

Leftover holiday cash?

Back from your dream trip with a wallet full of leftover holiday money?

We buy back most foreign currency notes in denominations we sell (buy back rates vary daily). Simply bring it to one of our instore bureaux.

Nectar members get more for their money

You’ll get a better exchange rate, if you tell us your Nectar card number when you order foreign currency.

Useful travel tools and guides

We’ve got a selection of helpful guides, covering everything from flying with kids to keeping your money safe abroad.
