1 in 10 leave travel money to the last minute, sorting it out within 24 hours of leaving while 17% leave it to just a few days prior to departure, according to a survey by leading travel money provider ICE – International Currency Exchange. With so much to organise ahead of a break, it’s easily done, leaving travellers with fewer options for shopping around. But leaving it to the last minute doesn’t always mean losing out. ICE has launched a brand new foreign currency exchange at the UK’s busiest train station – London Waterloo .

Conveniently located next to the entrance to the underground near platform 6, ICE’s Waterloo location is ideal for busy commuters, shoppers and visitors to London. Opening at 7am each weekday and closing at 7pm, ICE at Waterloo offers a choice 70 currencies including rates that are often web-beating on Euros and US Dollars, providing a great solution for workers who have either left it too late for home delivery or would just prefer to pick up their currency.

Travellers to the Eurozone or US can access the best rate on the day using the ICE Click & Collect service. There’s no up-front payment, customers simply print off a voucher from the ICE website or show the voucher on their smartphone to be offered a preferential rate on Euros or US Dollars. For example, on 7th December ICE was offering 1.36 Euros to the Pound on while the Click & Collect Rate being offered was 1.38.

Koko Sarkari, COO of ICE, comments “Mixing convenience with great exchange rates on foreign currency, ICE at Waterloo takes the hassle out of sorting holiday money this festive season. Travellers will benefit from a friendly and speedy travel money service, ready to pick up on their way to or from work, or on a visit to the capital”.
