Forget any worries that if you use a Bureau de Change at Gatwick you will pay through the nose for the privilege. The charges levied will always match or better the rates set by the principal UK clearing banks, and currencies of all major Gatwick destinations are carried. (The supply of some currencies may be subject to legal restrictions). You can pre-order currency by telephoning:
Travelex 01293 567744
Thomas Cook 01293 568800
TTT 01293 568688
Travelex 01293 567744
Thomas Cook 01293 567197
TTT 01293 568687
The Travelex Bureau de Change to the right of the entrance to International Departures at South Terminal, and the Thomas Cook Bureau de Change in Departures at North Terminal are both open 24 hours a day.
As a token of its commitment to a top quality exchange service, BAA guarantees that passengers at Gatwick will be able to buy up to £500 in each of ten major currencies in each of the Terminals at any time. If they fail to meet that standard of service, they guarantee to pay the passenger the balance of the desired exchange plus a bonus payment of £500 in Sterling Travellers Cheques.
As well as changing currency, the Bureaux cash sterling cheques, free of charge, when supported by a cheque guarantee card.
If you are travelling First or Business Class, there are specially designated Fast Track counters at South Terminal Departures (Travelex) and North Terminal Departures (Thomas Cook) and The Avenue (Travelex).
Travel and flight insurance requirements can be handled by bureaux in each of the Terminals. Cash and cheques can be paid into personal accounts, and payment made of gas, electricity, phone and credit card bills, all free of charge before you fly. Personal cheques will be cashed, subject to presentation of two forms of identification, up to the limit of a guarantee card - again free of charge.
Obtaining your foreign currency has been made as painless as possible in both of Gatwick's Terminals. BAA Gatwick guarantees that you will pay no more in commission charges than you would in any High Street bank, and often the overall deal is better. Withdraw money from Cash dispenses throughout the terminal buildings.
The Travelex Buy Back guarantee is a good deal for those who are unsure how much foreign cash they will need. Exchange more than £300 and, when you return, Travelex will buy back up to 30% of the original transaction value at the same exchange rate and commission free.
For any currency exchange queries dial 0800 844844 (24 hours).
