About travel money

How do you buy travel money?

Foreign currency is usually sold by a currency exchange company, also known as a bureau de change. These companies specialise in exchanging one currency for another, offering rates of exchange based on the changing international money market.

Modern currency exchanges typically offer the option to buy currency online. At Ulster Bank, we’ve partnered with Eurochange to offer online and telephony currency ordering with convenient options for home delivery or branch collection.
