This will normally be your local Royal Mail depot or sorting office. You must take this card and photo ID with you, when you collect your order.

You can track your order using your tracker number and the Royal Mail Tracker link found on your order confirmation email. If your order was despatched, but you haven't received it within the allotted time period, please contact us and we'll do our best to get things sorted.
HOW DO I KNOW THAT MY RationalFX Travel Money ORDER HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL?
At the end of the order process you will see a message confirming your order has been accepted together with an order reference number. We recommend you note down your order reference number or, if you can, print the confirmation message. You will be required to quote this number in any subsequent correspondence.
WHAT CARD FEES DO YOU CHARGE?
There is no charge if you pay by Bank Transfer or by Debit card. Please note that we are not currently taking payment using Credit Card or AMEX.
THERE ARE SUFFICIENT FUNDS IN MY ACCOUNT, BUT MY PAYMENT CARD HAS BEEN REJECTED. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Unfortunately, there is not much we can do to help if your bank/card issuer has rejected the transaction. Please contact them directly in the event of any problems. When you select the ‘Confirm Order' button, we will send a pre-authorisation request to your bank or card issuer. If they authorise the payment request, your card details will be sent for fraud and anti-money laundering checks. Once these checks are passed, we will send your bank/card issuer a fulfilment instruction to debit the money from the card. In the unlikely event that your order cannot be completed, you will be notified and the payment card will not be charged. However, your bank/card issuer may still ring-fence or hold the funds for up to 10 days and we recommend that you contact them directly to speed up the release of the funds. If you retry the order/payment with the same card, your bank/card issuer may ringfence the same amount again, which will reduce the funds available to you. If you think the rejection of your card payment is an error, please contact your bank/card issuer before contacting us – they can provide more information than we can. Please note that some banks/card issuers set a maximum value for a cash transaction, irrespective of your balance / credit limit.
HOW DO I PAY BY BANK TRANSFER?
You can instruct your bank to pay us, using the bank details sent to you with the order confirmation. This is typically done by internet banking but you can also use telephone bank facilities or action a transfer in branch. You must use your RationalFX Travel Money order number as the bank reference to allow us to identify your payment in a timely manner.
I HAVE PAID BY BANK TRANSFER, HAVE YOU RECEIVED MY PAYMENT?
Normally payments take up to 2 hours to reach us. During peak periods it may take us several business hours to respond.
