Travelex, a market leading foreign exchange brand, has launched more than 20 new bureaux and partnerships across Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Brazil as international aviation continue to rebound post-pandemic.
Travelex has opened eight new stores in the APAC region in 2023, including a new retail store at Penang International Airport. The bureau, which is Travelex’s very first retail store in the North of Malaysia (Penang), brings the total number of stores in Malaysia to eight, with two further stores – including an on-the-move kiosk – set to be launched in the coming months.
In China, Travelex has opened two new stores at Chongqing Airport (one at arrivals and one at departures), whilst at Sendai Airport in Japan Travelex has opened a new landside store, its 73rd location in the country.
At Hong Kong International Airport, Travelex has also extended its contract to operate its eight bureaux across arrivals, departures and transit areas (both airside and landside) by a further three years.
In Australia, Travelex has opened new bureaux in Brisbane, located at the historic Anzac Square Arcade in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD, and in Mandurah, Western Australia. In New Zealand Travelex has also opened new stores in Albany and Nelson. Furthermore, Travelex has signed a partnership with Bank of New Zealand (BNZ) which has seen BNZ refer all its travel money services to Travelex.
Richard Wazacz, Travelex CEO, said: “We’re delighted to have hit the ground running in 2023, including the launch of more than 20 new stores across four continents.
“With international travel returning more quickly than anticipated, we are fully focussed on simplifying our customers’ access to international money however and whenever. These new stores and partnerships, plus the expansion of ATM click-and-collect across the UK, will play an important role on that journey.”
