What People are Saying

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.
Srichandra
I was scheduled to travel to the US and I was short on time to exchange my currency. My friend recommended that I buy foreign exchange from Thomas Cook because of two reasons; good rate and simple online process. I did not quite understand the online process when it was narrated to me, but when I visited the site, I was shocked to find out how easy it was. Just four steps, and I got the currency at my door step. Absolutely fantastic service.
Bhavesh Tripathy
I was on a two-day business trip to Singapore and my trip got extended by another two days. I had a day off and Universal Studio has been on my list. Unfortunately, I had carried money keeping in mind a two-day affair. I contacted Thomas Cook and they helped e exchange my money at their office which was on the way towards Universal.
