Tesco Bank celebrates opening of Travel Money Bureau in Bangor with Easter Rate Sale
2 April 2012
Tesco Bank Travel Money is holding an Easter Rate Sale to celebrate the opening of its new Bangor Bureau on 2nd April.
The Rate Sale, which will run until Wednesday 11 April, applies to Euros and US Dollars, and offers those going abroad over the Easter break or beyond the perfect opportunity to buy their holiday money. Currency, travellers cheques and pre-paid currency cards are all included in the sale.
Tesco Bank Travel Money also offers a price match policy - if customers can find a better exchange rate in a retail outlet within a five mile radius on the same day, they will guarantee to match the rate*.
The new Travel Money Bureau is opening in-store at the Caernarfon Road Extra. Tesco Travel Money now has 190 bureaux in stores across the country.
Euan Ballantyne, Head of Travel Money at Tesco Bank, comments,
“We pride ourselves in guaranteeing competitive travel exchange rates for our customers. Our travel bureaux continue to be very popular with customers, making Tesco a one-stop shop for holiday essentials before going abroad.
“Getting your travel money from Tesco is a convenient and accessible way to buy a wide range of currencies, travellers cheques and pre-paid currency.”
To buy or return leftover holiday cash, visit the Caernarfon Road Extra between 10 am and 6pm on weekdays, 9am – 6pm on Saturday and 10.30 – 4pm on Sunday.
