Online currency service touches down at Dublin, Shannon, Knock
Currency exchnage operator ICE (International Currency Exchange), which operates 20 branches throughout Ireland, has launched a ‘click and collect’ service for passengers travelling through Dublin, Shannon and Knock airports.
The first service of its kind in the country, click and collect allows travellers to order up to nine major currencies, secured at a preferential exchange rate with 0% commission, for collection at a designated branch in any of the three airports. To reserve the currency, travellers print off a voucher from www.ice-ireland.ie or can show the voucher on their smartphone or tablet computer.
Lisa Madden, ICE country manager for Ireland said: "With eight out of 10 Irish adults now using the internet to browse and buy products and services, coupled with a surge in smartphone and tablet ownership, we felt that the time was right to launch this new on-line service for airline passengers… By harnessing technology, the convenience of advance ordering is now a reality for anyone with internet access."
ICE employs 91 staff at Dublin, Shannon, KNock and Belfast airports.
