NOTE - You will be asked to provide one document from each table initially.

You may be required to prove the source of the funds you are using to pay for your transaction and the purpose of the transaction. Should this be the case we will contact you specifically regarding this. This will most likely not be at outset of the transaction. You agree that you will have available and provide to us the necessary documents to prove these should we so request them and further agree that your failure to do so to our satisfaction may result in the cancellation of your transaction at your cost. Should you fail to provide the necessary evidence within seven days then we reserve the right to cancel the transaction as having failed the Anti Money Laundering process.

Should your order fail Anti Money Laundering checks then we reserve the right to cancel the transaction as per our cancellation policy.

ORDERING

When placing an order, you warrant that you are acting on your own behalf, for a genuine reason and the currency that you wish to buy/sell is legally and beneficially yours, has not been obtained by illegal means nor in any way contrary to the rights of the legal owner and is not tainted in anyway by criminal activity. You also warrant to us that the information that you provide to us is true and accurate in all respects and that you will not withhold any material information from us and you will provide us with any information that we may reasonably require. Neither your placement of an order, our acknowledgement or receipt of your request for currency or our receipt of your payment constitute acceptance of your order. Acceptance of an order is only declared by us upon despatch of the currency to you.

You must provide all the requested information for us to process the order. We reserve the right to request further information from you, should it be required, at any time. You agree that we may take reasonable steps to verify your identification and you acknowledge and agree that we may elect not to do business with you for any reason, at our absolute discretion.

TELEPHONE ORDERS

We do not accept orders by telephone.

PAYMENT

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PAY US IN CASH OR BY CHEQUE

You can pay for your order by Bank Transfer (Internet/Telephone Banking/CHAPS/BACS, etc). We do not accept cash deposits directly into our account, cheques or any plastic cards. Should you attempt to or be successful in making a payment to us by any of these methods once this is identified it will be held on suspense and your currency order will not be processed. Any refund payable will be subject to both a £25.00 admin fee and a 1% surcharge. All orders will be processed at the foreign exchange rates confirmed to you by our automated email process only at the time of ordering. Our website rates are indicative only and we are not bound by them. Your payment must reach us as cleared funds within 48 hours of placing your order; this is your Payment Date, in order for us to secure the rate on your order. We reserve the right to amend your order to the rate on day of receipt should your funds not reach us with 48 hours. In instances where a Bank Holiday is between your order date and your payment date we will allow extra time equivalent to the Holiday period. The minimum order value for currency is £300; orders of less than £700 will incur a handling fee of £5.

You must attach your order number to the payment to enable us to identify the funds upon receipt. Failure to do this will likely add processing time to your order.
Payment should be made from a bank account in the name of the person ordering the funds. If you pay from a business account or if someone pays on your behalf you understand that a delay in processing will occur as it will be necessary to identify the remitter of the payment to us.

REFUNDS

Any refund of a cancelled order, duplicate payment, rounding adjustment or any other type of refund will be subject to a £5.00 payment charge in addition to any other fees payable.

Short Payments

Orders that are not paid for in full will not be despatched until the outstanding amount is received. We shall endeavour but do not warrant to advise you of any shortfall via email.

Unidentifiable payment receipts

Should we be unable to identify the sender of the funds due to the sender or their bankers not attaching the order number or other means to enable us to identify them or the funds we receive not being readily identifiable as being sent from the orderer, then these funds will be held in suspense pending identification. We reserve the right to amend the exchange rate to the rate published on the day the funds are eventually identified.

ADMINISTRATION FEES FOR SPECIFIC DENOMINATIONS REQUEST

Should you require your currency in specific denominations i.e. all USD100 bills, a fee of £5.00 will be added to your order to fulfil your request. The £5.00 Administration Fee can be made by Bank Transfer or by currency deduction. The Clients request for specific denominations will not be acted upon until payment has been received or deduction agreed.

DELIVERY

All deliveries are made to the residential address you specify when placing your order.

The Company does not recommend delivery to Business/Charity/Organization [work] addresses but will do so upon request at the customers own risk.

All orders are dispatched using Royal Mail Special Delivery, which guarantees next working day delivery before 1:00pm. A signature will be required on delivery of all orders. Any person at the delivery address can sign for the package.

Travel FX Ltd does not guarantee next day delivery or guarantee that your required delivery date will be met in any way however we shall attempt to deliver by your required date. We will not be held liable for any issues, expenses or costs arising from not delivering on the date you have stated.

It is important that you are present to sign and accept delivery for your order. We cannot accept any responsibility for fraudulent acts committed by a third party or non-delivery to a named person. We will not be liable for any losses or expenses arising from late or non-delivery.

If you believe your order is in anyway incorrect then you must inform us with 48 hours of receipt by email to info@travelfx.co.uk.

You accept that failed or missing deliveries will not be immediately refunded but dealt with under the terms of the Royal Mail’s claims procedure. Once their investigation and our subsequent insurance claim on your behalf (where appropriate) is complete only then will any refund be payable.

Delivery dates should not be placed for the 2 working days prior to your departure for your travels.

Where the delivery date falls on a Monday, your package may be dispatched on the Friday prior as Royal Mail do not collect from the Company on a Saturday/Sunday, therefore you may receive your package on the Saturday prior to your delivery date. This is dependent upon the local Royal Mail Delivery office's services where the package is being delivered to. In instances where the package does not arrive on the Saturday, your package may be delivered on the Monday. Royal Mail cannot guarantee delivery on a Saturday.

You may request Saturday delivery of your order for a charge of £10.00 however we cannot guarantee that Royal Mail will fulfil this request. This fee is non-refundable in the event of non-delivery on a Saturday.

You may request delivery of your order before 9.00am Monday to Friday for a charge of £20.00 however we cannot guarantee that Royal Mail will fulfil this request. This fee is non-refundable in the event of non-delivery before 9.00am

You may request delivery of your order before 9.00am on Saturday for a charge of £30.00 however we cannot guarantee that Royal Mail will fulfil this request. This fee is non-refundable in the event of non-delivery before 9.00am

Where delivery is made at customer's request we can accept no direct responsibility or liability for safe delivery beyond ensuring the secure handover of payment to the chosen delivery address.

If the delivery address is to a location with a centralised reception or any kind of multiple occupancy building, be aware that Royal Mail may deliver to the reception or other delivery point only and not to the customer. Therefore, anyone at the reception can sign for and take receipt of the delivery.

We are not responsible for deliveries for which Royal Mail has obtained a signature at your delivery address but which you have not received.

Our delivery schedule is subject to variation for public holidays, weather conditions and force majeure.

Customers must refuse to accept any damaged packages delivered by Royal Mail. We will not accept any responsibility for damaged packages.

We will attempt to send your order so that it reaches you on or before the date specified when placing your order. We are not responsible for late-delivery where the Postal Service has failed to meet the requirements of the Royal Mail Special Delivery service.

Any losses incurred by you, which are caused as a result of us delivering your order to a delivery address supplied by you in error, will be borne by you.

We only deliver to areas that are covered by the Royal Mail Special Delivery service.

Deliveries to areas specified by the Royal Mail under general exceptions will be subject to the Royal Mails delivery schedule.

Returned or refused deliveries will be bought back by us at the prevailing rate on the day upon receipt at our offices unless prior arrangements have been agreed.

DELIVERY CHANGES

Should the Client need to change either the delivery date or the delivery address this request must be done by email from the email address initially used to make the order and may not take effect until confirmed back to you in an email from us.

BUYBACK

We will consider the purchase back of unused currency only from clients to whom we sold the currency initially. We neither supply nor buyback 200 & 500 Euro notes. We do not accept coins through the buyback facility and you accept that any coins sent to us are to be excluded from your refund calculation and will not be returned to you. We will apply the exchange rate on the day of receipt back to our offices to the transaction not the rate the currency was originally purchased for.

SUBSITUTION

The Company will endeavour to ensure that the Currency Notes supplied to the client are in the denominations requested; however the company reserves the right to supply the currency in any denominations. The Company reserves the right to substitute Sterling, either cash or cheque, in the event of a short fall in the specific currency. In the event of the substitution being greater than £25 or 5% of the value, the Company will attempt to contact the customer.

CONFIDENTIALITY

The Client agrees that the Company may carry out any check as to the Client's financial status as the Company shall deem fit. The Client accepts that the Company will attempt to verify the Client's identity by checking the details supplied against those held on a number of specific databases that the Company has access to, for example information from the Electoral Register, and fraud prevention agencies. A record of this process will be kept that may be used to help other companies to verify the Client's identity. The Company may also pass information to organisations involved in fraud prevention to protect the Company and other clients from theft and fraud. If the Client supplies false or inaccurate information and the Company suspect's fraud, the Company will record this and share this information with other organizations.

INDEMNITY

The Client shall pay all legal fees or costs incurred in connection with the enforcement of these terms and conditions or legal fees incurred in connection with any dispute or difference arising under this agreement that is resolved in favour of the Company.

CANCELLATION POLICY

The Company reserves the right to cancel any order at any time for any reason. In the event of the Company cancelling an order the client will be reimbursed the full amount paid by credit transfer or in some circumstances asked to complete a recall request by their own bankers. Once a Client has entered a contract for the currency, the order cannot be cancelled by the client without incurring a fee. Should a client request cancellation of their order/s a fee of £25.00 will be applied per order plus the costs of reversing the foreign exchange transaction. Should an order be cancelled due to you failing to pass any Anti Money Laundering procedure then the cancellation fee and the cost of reversing the foreign exchange transaction will apply. The exchange used will be as published by Metro bank on the day of cancellation. This fee must be paid in full before any order can be cancelled. All cancellation requests must be emailed to info@travelfx.co.uk. Failure to pay the cancellation fee within 7 days may result in legal action.

EXCLUSION CLAUSE

The Company excludes all liability for any claim arising from any act undertaken for a Customer unless the Customer can prove that the company caused the Customer to suffer loss.
When determining if the company has caused a Customer to suffer loss, the Customer accepts the actions of intermediaries not employed by the company are the actions of third parties. The company will not be responsible for any loss caused by a third party. This does not affect the customers' statutory rights.

The Company will make every effort to process orders placed via this service without any delay, however, delays can sometimes occur due to technical problems or matters out of our control. If this occurs we will make every effort to deliver your order as soon as possible.

If we are in breach of our obligations under these Terms and Conditions, we will only be liable to you for the direct losses that you incur. Direct losses mean the value of the Currency purchased, pursuant to any Contract. You accept that this is a reasonable pre-estimate of the loss you may suffer resulting from any breach by us or of our obligations hereunder.
