B the travel brand signs an agreement with Global Exchange to render currency exchange services in its travel agency network

26 • 05 • 2016

  • When booking their holidays, the customers of B the travel brand can have, in a single transaction, a range of 70 foreign currencies delivered at their doorstep within 48 to 72 hours.
  • With this new product, B the travel brand wants to offer its customers the best services in the market in order to facilitate things as much as possible for their trip.


Salamanca/Madrid, 25 May 2016.- B the travel brand, the travel agency network of Barceló Viajes’ retail division, has signed an agreement with Global Exchange, third-leading company in the world specialised in currency exchange, to incorporate foreign exchange services to its travel agencies.

By means of this agreement, B the travel brand will offer its customers the services of Global Exchange, allowing them to purchase up to 70 foreign currencies through a simple transaction. This is a huge benefit for its customers, given that other financial institutions only have available for purchase an average of 20 currencies. This kind of service represents a significant timesaving and trouble-free experience for travellers, since they can book their holidays with the peace of mind of knowing that the local currency of the country they are travelling to is surely available.

Once the customer has ordered the currency at the travel agency, they will receive it at their door, without additional costs, within the next 48 to 72 hours. To ensure the certainty of the delivery, Global Exchange has implemented exhaustive safety protocols that strictly comply with Anti-money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing regulations.

In the words of Enric Riera, General Distribution Manager of Barceló Viajes, “we are working to be able to offer the best products to our customers, aiming to render a 360º service. From B the travel brand we put at their disposal everything necessary so that they can enjoy the experience of travelling from day one”.

The President of the Global Exchange Group, Isidoro J. Alanís, has explained that “this alliance makes easier for tourists travelling with B the travel brand to arrive to their destination with the local currency in hand without further procedures or additional costs”. Additionally, Alanís highlights that “with the addition of this new agency network, the services of Global Exchange are increasingly being integrated in other companies, evidencing the trust of the sector in our company”.
