Moneycorp Becomes Bristol Airport’s Currency and ATM Services Provider

Bristol Airport - terminal - new brandMoneycorp has become the sole foreign exchange provider at Bristol Airport; selected by Bristol Airport Limited to replace Travelex following a formal tender process.  All existing Travelex staff have transferred over to Moneycorp.  This new deal secures Moneycorp’s presence at the airport for the next five years.
This is the first time Moneycorp has a presence in one of the UK’s major airports outside the South East of England.  The operation at Bristol Airport will be run by a staff of around 20, and comprises four full-serviced foreign exchange bureaux and seven ATMs, dispensing Euros and Sterling.
The bureaux and ATMs will provide foreign exchange services 24 hours a day, seven days a week to the 5.9 million passengers who travel through Bristol Airport annually.  Moneycorp recently expanded its operations at London’s Gatwick Airport, where they are also now the exclusive foreign exchange provider.
Mark Bessent, Airport Development Director at Moneycorp, commented: “We are honoured to have been chosen by Bristol Airport to become the sole currency and ATM provider at one of the most important airports in the UK.  Not only is this the first time we have had a presence at Bristol, it is our first venture outside of the South East.
“It also follows our recent expansion at Gatwick, and further demonstrates our commitment to expand our offering across the UK.”
Tom Hack, Bristol Airport’s Head of Retail, added: “We are delighted to welcome Moneycorp to Bristol Airport.  Bristol Airport is Moneycorp’s first location in the South West, but they already provide bureau de change services at Gatwick, Stansted, Southend and Southampton airports.
“Providing several locations onsite as well as offering an online travel order service, Moneycorp will provide our passengers with a stress-free and efficient option when making their travel money arrangements.”
