yeah, that'll be good. $1.52 instead of $1.51, amazing. Especially when the market rate is currently $1.56.

'commission free' yeah, right.

This is a bit like going on to any other deal and going 'wow, £10 instead of £11, amazing. Especially when it costs £7 to make'

Companies exist to make a profit. If they didn't exist, you wouldn't be able to exchange currency at all, so treat it as a good thing. Just because a currency retailer isn't able to offer (currency) market rates (as if), it doesn't mean it isn't a good deal when compared to others on the (consumer) market.
Travelex have some of the best consumer rates going if you book in advance and collect at the airport.

However they also have the worst rates if you don't buy in advance.

I've voted hot since no one has managed to beat them the last few times I've needed to exchange currencies.

I always have used Travelex in the past. However, this summer I found Thomas Cook offering better Euro rates. Possibly just been lucky at time of purchase but on both occasions, June and July, TC were offering the better rate. This was booking in advance.

I too have voted hot, because I will be buying my Australian currency tomorrow if this gets Travelex to the top of this page:

Sorry to the OP that this has gone cold, I don't think it deserved to, but I guess we still have to see how good the deal actually is.

I actually think they have pretty good rates...amongst the best if you buy in advance actually...
Sadly they're still being beaten by some online-only dealers for Australian dollars, so this isn't too great of a deal for me after all. Oh well.
I can get 28Euros more using Travel-Premier on a £1200 spend so cold from me.
1. I was generally impressed with ease of use and accessibility of my pre-loaded Rand Passport whilst in RSA & surrounds. However, obtaining an account balance proved problematic, especially if you don't have access to the Internet. This could prove embarrassing and thus is cause for concern, which could be easily avoided if an a/c balance was provided.
2. Hey guys, how about more regular 'Happy Hours'; it's thirsty work out here!! Cheers!
