First Choice launches online travel money service
Wednesday 7, April 2010
From today holidaymakers will be able to order currency and travellers cheques from the comfort of their home or workplace following the launch of online currency services from First Choice.
Now live at www.firstchoice.onlinecurrency.co.uk, the service complements the current bureau de change services available in First Choice retail shops in the UK. Travellers can enjoy highly competitive exchange rates for over 65 currencies and travellers cheques around the world, with next day home delivery of foreign currency for orders received by 3pm. The new service is delivered by foreign currency expert ICE (International Currency Exchange).
Nick Longman, Distribution Director TUI Travel UK & Ireland comments: “Our customers want convenience, security and ease of access to their travel money. This online foreign exchange facility will allow holidaymakers the opportunity to securely purchase their currency at a competitive rate, without even leaving home. We’re confident it will be a welcome addition to our current services.”
Gary Smith, Head of Business Development at ICE adds “This is a fantastic endorsement of the strength of ICE’s foreign exchange service. We are delighted to play such an important role in the evolution of Thomson and First Choice’s services to their travel customers in the UK.”
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
