  • I made my Bill Payment within 12 hours of placing my order. However, I realised that my Bill Payment was made after banking hours and as such, you might not receive my payment immediately. Will my order be cancelled?
    We strongly encourage you to make your Bill Payment within 12 hours from the time you place your order to ensure that the payment is received as soon as possible, and that your order is processed in time for your nominated pick-up date. Our system is designed to allow for possible delays in receiving payments when orders are made after banking hours. However, we do reserve the right to cancel your order if payment is not received within 12 hours of the time your order is placed.

  • Can I use a foreign-issued credit or debit card when placing my order?
    Travelex only accepts New Zealand-issued Visa or MasterCard credit or debit cards.
