Responding to increasing tourism to Asia

The seven currencies have been added as a result of growing demand for Asian currencies as travel across Asia continues to rebound post-pandemic, and Travelex’s commitment to growing its TMC currency range, including across Europe.

The launch of the new currencies marks another milestone in Travelex’s digital transformation journey, which has seen the FX company increase investment into and development of its digital infrastructure and products. In 2023, Travelex introduced an automated, self-service digital kiosk at London Heathrow, which followed the launch of its ATM click-and-collect product. Travelex has also been investing in new digital, self-serve concept stores across its international portfolio, as well as upgrading its backend and cloud digital infrastructure.

Commenting on this development, officials from Travelex said that as one of the only global providers with cash and card offering, their proposition enables consumers with the ‘best of both’, offering travel money solutions that work for all needs. With the TMC expanding its currency offering, they are proud to offer customers convenience, flexibility, and security when spending money abroad.
