About us

In 1976, Lloyd Dorfman opened our first Bureau de Change on Southampton Row, London, setting up what has become the world’s leading foreign exchange specialist. 

We trade in over 80 currencies and do business in over 50 countries. Our customers can find us online and in over 1,000 stores, including all the major airports. We have over 1,000 ATMs around the world. We also take care of foreign currency services for partners including banks, supermarkets and travel agencies, extending our reach to over 60 countries. 

We continue to grow our geographic reach, both organically and through targeted acquisitions in growth markets. Examples of these include  FX Africa in South Africa and Grupo Confidence, the largest consumer foreign exchange specialist in Brazil. 

In 2015 Lloyd Dorfman, Apax Partners and Standard Chartered, completed the sale of Travelex to Dr Shetty and Centurion Investments.

Travelex is part of Finablr, a global platform for Payments and Foreign Exchange solutions. With deep regulatory know-how, technology expertise and industry leading partnerships, Finablr companies provide a broad array of tailored and trusted financial solutions for consumers and businesses. With a global reach spanning 170+ countries, Finablr companies processed over 150 million transactions in 2018, managing nearly USD 115 billion for customers.
