The branch in Canary Wharf is about a ten to fifteen minute walk from the pier and can be found within the Jubilee Line Tube station, at ticket hall level.

Thomas Exchange Global senior manager Trevor Samuel said: “Many of London’s tourist attractions are located close to the River Thames, making water transportation all the more convenient of an option to visitors.

“Banks and prepaid travel card services levy various international charges that often travellers are unaware of at the time of transaction. It is our policy to provide the best deals and most accurate information to our travellers so they are always aware of how much they are spending."
