New Spring 2018 Features 18

Despite the recent weather, here at COG we are still preparing for the Spring/ Summer season and have been hard at work to provide an even better service this year for our customers.

As well as the Home and Office Delivery services that are still available to all of our customers around the UK, we have now recently added a brand-new Branch Collection service from Blackheath and Greenwich, in addition to the City Forex branch at Liverpool St we already had.

For customers based close to us, we have worked hard to try and provide an alternative option to the postal service. It seemed counter-productive for people within a 5 minute walk to have to use the Royal Mail service to get their currency from us.

By using the Branch Collection service, people now have the option to select which collection point is most convenient for them, pay for their holiday money, and then collect the next day.

The collection points can be found at the visitor centre at The Old Royal Navy College in Greenwich, and in Tranquil Vale for Blackheath. Both are easily accessible by train, and have parking facilities nearby. Details of the Branch Collection service can be found on our home page.

We hope this will provide an alternative way for people to take advantage of our currency rates for all of their holiday money requirements.


In addition to this, the COG team have also set up our very own International Payment service.

If you transfer money abroad, you can save up to 5% with the fantastic rates we have on offer. There are no hidden fees involved either, so don’t waste your money with the banks!

Basically, all of your currency requirements, whether by cash or transfer, can be taken care of by us now. Take advantage of the brilliant COG service and currency rates, by using our brand new International Payment service.

Again, more information is available through our website.

Winter Escape: Trinidad & Tobago 05

With ice and snow warnings dominating the UK headlines this week, anyone could be forgiven for thinking about booking a last minute get-away to somewhere a bit warmer.

The Caribbean is always a guarantee for warm weather throughout the year and has been a popular holiday destination for us Brits for a long time and with good reason. With a host of tropical golden beaches, good food, drinks and enough of a good vibe culture to supply the whole planet, the Caribbean islands are a great choice for a winter escape.

Take Trinidad & Tobago as a fine example. This February they are once again celebrating their world-famous annual carnival. Hosted in the Port of Spain area in Trinidad, the carnival is a tropical bonanza, full of colour, music, wild costumes and everything in between. Brazil’s carnivals may take all the attention, but Trinidad’s should not be dismissed easily. In fact, such is its global influence and appeal, it is noted as being the main inspiration for London’s Notting Hill Carnival.

After the partying, you can then retreat to one of Trinidad & Tobago’s famous beach resorts, such as Maracas Bay, with its incredible tropical rainforest backdrop.

At Currency Online Group, we are currently selling the Trinidad & Tobago dollar at 9.03, which at the time of writing is the best rate anywhere in the UK.

Buy your currency now, using our Home or Office Delivery service to guarantee the best rates in the UK.
