At the time of making a reservation with collection at exchange offices, the user will be informed by telephone or on the website screen of the estimated sale price, which is a variable concept depending on the chosen collection office, commissions and expenses. The reservation will be paid for at the office indicated on the day of collection.
It should be borne in mind that the entities authorized to exchange currency are not obliged to apply official exchange rates, and may apply a commercial margin and/or commissions.



The full amount of the booking shall be paid in cash or by credit card, if this means of payment is available, at the office chosen by the user on the day selected by the user.



Once the booking has been made and accepted by us, the user will receive a confirmation e-mail, which will specify the details of the operation requested, estimated price, expenses and commissions, method of payment, office and day and time of collection.
In the event that the booking is not accepted by the user, no liability will arise for the user.



The booking will be available for collection at the office and on the day indicated in the confirmation email.
The booking will only be delivered to the person who made the booking, for which the customer must provide valid identification. 
Obtaining the reservation will be subject to compliance with the due diligence and internal control measures applicable in compliance with the Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing regulations.



Global Exchange guarantees that the currency provided is of the highest quality and corresponds to the legal tender in the issuing country.
