Whether that’s in cash or on a Travel Money Card (or both), get your travel money with us. You can order online before 2pm Monday to Friday and pick up your US dollars within 2 hours at your nearest participating branch*.

How far will your US dollars go?

The United States is vast and it’s common for specific tax laws to be decided at a federal level. That means pricing for individual items might differ by state. Similar to many countries worldwide, cities tend to come with higher prices.

Destinations that are popular with tourists might see prices inflated compared to other areas, but this isn’t always the case. You can check ahead to see what prices may be like in various US areas with our holiday money report.

  • Public transport is usually cheaper with many cities offering good-value travel passes
  • Orlando is significantly cheaper than New York for the same items
  • A meal for two with wine costs on average £51.74 in Orlando, but £72.66 in New York
