Ordering currency online

Can anyone recommend a company for ordering cash/ travellers cheques online. Not going until June but keeping my eye on the $ rate and online always seems to be a higher rate.

Always used to use Crown Currency but we all know what happened to them.


Not necessarily getting now but just curious who everyone uses.

Thanks

We used Travelex for currency and have just loaded up a Caxton currency card - 1.50 today

We always use a Fairfx currency card. They are offering $1.50 today.

If pre-ordering cash, we generally use Post Office or Fairfx, although have used Marks and Spencer and Travelex also.

The Fairfx card should be available to you in NI. We have had ours for years and I'm pretty sure we got it when we lived in NI so can't see a problem.

We use Travelex, order online and pick up at the train station before we board the train to go to the airport.
