We specialise in Pawnbroking but also provide a foreign currency service to our customers giving the best value for money when they purchase holiday money.

Leftover currency

It is often surprising that most travellers have extra money after their trip without realising it

When traveling, holidaymakers convert their Pounds Sterling into local currency to purchase items and pay for the services needed. Travellers are advised to carry extra cash as a buffer – it is the responsible thing to do in case of emergencies.

But once home, travellers forget about the leftover money. Maybe they intend to change it back but then forget or they keep hold of it to use for future travel – either way there are considerable amounts of money stashed away in people’s homes & travel bags. Imagine, after many months/years, finding a wad of foreign cash in your drawer or suitcase. Forgetting you had £300 left from a trip is actually pretty common.

But what exactly is the problem?

Well, this money tends to still be in the local currency of the country visited. Having no use for those extra Euros or US dollars they would just be a keepsake.

How to exchange foreign banknotes back to pounds?

Maxcroft can exchange leftover travel money.

Before deciding it’s not worth the trouble, holiday money can be turned to Sterling cash that can be used for other purposes – maybe a nice meal or to add to a savings account.
