    What People are Saying

    I had some basic queries before I could decide of buying AUD, and I must say that the Thomas Cook team was professional enough in handling all of them. So much so that later when I returned from my trip I had no doubts in my mind about selling the spare AUD to Thomas Cook and the service quality was still intact.

    Exchanging Bahraini Dinar is an expensive affair although I feel the team at Thomas Cook put me at ease with some amazing rates that I couldn’t find elsewhere. Their live rate card feature was a good reference point for me to finally decide on the right time to buy the currency.
    Chaitali Dattani
    Being used to using credit and debit cards, I find it very stressful to carry currency in cash. I get paranoid about getting robbed at public spaces with so much cash in my purse. I applied for ‘One Currency Prepaid Travel Card’ by Thomas cook and I cannot thank them enough for this convenience. The best part is accepted at the most popular merchants and ATM’s abroad. I now travel with peace and tension free.
