Travelex has opened six new stores in Australia and three in New Zealand.

Travelex has also partnered with Bank of New Zealand (BNZ) to offer its 1.2m customers access to discounted travel money.

In recent months Travelex has also undertaken extensive investment across the Middle East.

In the UAE, Travelex launched a series of new bureaux and On-The-Move kiosks across airports in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah as well as the Mina Rashid sea port.

Travelex is in the process of launching a dozen new ATMs across the Dubai Harbour Cruise Terminal, Dubai International and the new Abu Dhabi Airport Terminal A.

In terms of a retail footprint expansion in the Middle East, Oman saw a launch of a new Travelex pre-immigration foreign exchange store at Muscat International Airport in October 2023.

The new store comes as Travelex celebrated its 20th anniversary in Oman this year.

In the UAE, a new flagship Landside Arrivals store has opened in Dubai International’s Terminal 3, and at Abu Dhabi seven new stores and eight ATMs have opened/

The new bureaux openings follow Travelex’s recent announcement of a £90m refinancing package.

Travelex is now working to further expand its retail offering and develop new wholesale relationships.

Richard Wazacz, Travelex CEO, said: “We’re thrilled to be investing in the growth of our retail store operations.”

“This investment is a clear statement that both travel, and Travelex, are on the rise once again.”
