Londoners heading to holidays in Europe can now make commission-free withdrawals of Euros at 70 Tube stations, including Victoria, Kings Cross and Heathrow.
Transport for London worked with Raphaels Bank to introduce dual sterling and Euro cash points at the stations after a poll found only 62 per cent of travellers bought currency in advance of their holidays.
TfL say the new service will make it easier for Londoners and commuters to get cash for both their holidays and regular spending.
The partnership will also generate commercial revenue for TfL which will be reinvested in the transport network and is part of an ongoing programme to improve the services available to Tube passengers.
Graeme Craig, TfL’s Director of Commercial Development, said: “As part of our ongoing plans to improve the services on offer for our customers, we have worked with Raphaels Bank to install these cash points at stations across our network.
“Millions of people use our network each year, including going to or from an airport, Eurostar and coach stations, and these machines have been installed to make it easier for people to access the currency they need.”
Beth Williams, Head of ATMs for Raphaels Bank, added: “Raphaels Bank, like the London Underground, is investing for the future and these brand new ATMs are expected to set new levels of reliability and availability across the Tube network.
“Convenience is paramount for busy London commuters. With Euros now available at over 70 stations across the Tube network, users of the Underground have instant access to cash on the way to the airport, Eurostar terminal, home or work, rather than being limited to the usual opening hours of Banks and outlets for foreign currency.”
