Foreign exchange brand Travelex has returned to 100 trading stores across Australia and New Zealand (ANZ), extending key contracts and signing new agreements.

Travelex has announced the opening of a series of new stores and the extension of key contracts and partnerships across the ANZ region, following a successful 2022 for its business there.

At Adelaide Airport, both phases of Travelex’s digital airport initiative are now fully live, with a range of offerings including self-serve and a cricket-themed store where customers can speak to one of our friendly ambassadors.

The digital airport initiative places a greater emphasis on click & collect and self-serve, while still providing traditional walk-up stores allowing customers to choose how they buy their foreign currency. The strategy also ensures there are no commission fees charged, Travelex noted.

The openings at Adelaide follow the launch of new stores in recent weeks at Cairns Airport, The Glen (Melbourne), Brookside (Brisbane) and Carindale (Brisbane). Travelex won four new airport contracts and 11 new off-airport sites across ANZ in 2022, meaning the now operates 100 trading stores across the region (80 in Australia and 20 in New Zealand).

Travelex has also extended and expanded other existing contracts across ANZ. Contracts at Perth Airport in Australia and Auckland Airport and Queenstown Airport in New Zealand have all been extended, taking these partnerships to 18 years (Auckland), 23 years (Queenstown) and 30 years (Perth) respectively.

The company has expanded its 20-year partnership with House of Travel, the largest privately owned travel company in New Zealand and the third largest travel organisation in the Asia Pacific region, with over 50 branches. Having previously operated at four House of Travel branches (Hamilton, Palmerston North, Invercargill and Tauranga), Travelex has announced plans to operate at three more (Milford, Nelson and The Crossing) with further partner branches in the pipeline.

Darren Brown, managing director ANZ, Travelex, said: “2022 was a resounding success for Travelex across the region –  bouncing back post-pandemic, further strengthening our position as the market leading FX brand and investing in our digital future, thereby giving our customers greater convenience than ever before.

“We’re delighted to start this year with such a prestigious series of openings and extensions. I would like to thank all our colleagues for their exceptional work, and we look forward to continuing to serve our customers across our portfolio of 100 (and growing) trading stores throughout the region.”
