      Hi John,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately this page is for international money transfers, so if you want to send money to an account overseas, you can use this link.

      In terms of exchanging physical money into another currency, please visit your local Travelex exchange centre.

      We also have a section about travel money that could help you with your decision.

      All the best,
      Shirley
