Open for business: a number of Sainsbury’s Bank’s Travel Money Bureaux, which were closed temporarily during the Coronavirus pandemic, have now re-opened across the UK.

Customers of Sainsbury’s Blackhall can once again buy and sell more than 12 different foreign currencies, and transfer money abroad with Western Union at their local bureau de change.

Since re-opening, the most popular currencies purchased at Sainsbury’s Blackhall have been Euros (90%) followed by Czech Koruna and Turkish Lira.

With many people travelling in Europe and further afield, customers can purchase travel money at competitive rates, and even better rates for Nectar members.

If holidays are cancelled due to these unprecedented times, customers can return their travel money at the exchange rate purchased, if they retain their receipt.

Jason King, Customer Director at Sainsbury’s Bank said:  “We’re delighted to welcome back travel money customers to our Blackhall store in Edinburgh. Whether it’s buying currency for a holiday abroad, selling back any extra from your trip or sending money to friends and family overseas with Western Union, we’re open and ready.”

Sinsbury’s Bank confirm that strict hygiene procedures will be in place to ensure safe handling of cash, protecting both colleagues and customers.
