A new Bureau de Change has opened its doors at the airportJuly 13, 2017
A new Bureau de Change has opened its doors at Doncaster Sheffield Airport this month, one of the first UK Airports to offer high street exchange rates within its terminal.
International Currency Exchange (ICE), one of the world’s leading providers of retail Bureau de Change and online foreign exchange services, has opened two new bureau locations at Doncaster Sheffield Airport, as well as three ATMs located across the airport’s check in, arrivals and departure lounge areas.
The move follows a significant increase in passenger numbers at the Airport, which handled over 1.2 million passengers in 2016, up by over 45% on 2015.
The launch of the new branches makes Doncaster Sheffield Airport one of the first airports in the North to offer high street prices in an airport terminal, where traditionally foreign exchange rates are often significantly higher than they are from a high street outlet.
Commenting on the launch, Ian Smith, Head of Commercial & Passenger experience at Doncaster Sheffield Airport said: ‘We’re really excited to be launching this new venture with International Currency Exchange (ICE) to provide a brand new travel currency store here in the terminal.”
“Through this new partnership, we’re proud to be the one of the first airports in the North to offer high street prices in terminal, where traditionally rates may not be as competitive. The new store will allow our passengers to easily purchase their travel money and be safe in the knowledge they are getting the best deal available."
Paul Glossop, Managing Director of International Currency Exchange for Europe, added: "Being a local myself and still living in the Doncaster area, I'm absolutely delighted that ICE is able to work hand-in-hand with such a trusted Airport partner as Doncaster Sheffield Airport. Together, we'll provide holidaymakers with the opportunity to exchange their travel money directly at the Airport before travelling at extremely competitive rates, certainly as good as most high street outlets."
Passengers at Doncaster Sheffield Airport will be able to take advantage of International Currency Exchange’s Click and Collect service, as well as one hour’s free parking for those locally who wish to use the service.
