Each outlet will provide customers accessibility of services such as inward remittances via MoneyGram and Xpress Money, products such as currency notes in 26 global currencies, travellers’ cheques, drafts and wires, prepaid forex cards, university fee remittance and wholesale foreign exchange.
In addition, Thomas Cook (India) offers travel services (air and rail tickets, holiday packages, insurance and visa and passport assistance) through these outlets.
Commenting on the expansion, Mahesh Iyer, Head of Foreign Exchange, Thomas Cook (India) Ltd, said: “Our strategic intent was two-pronged — leverage the strong growth in the outbound travel market (leisure, overseas student and employment) coupled with our consumer centric outreach. That is to get to our customers’ doorstep, especially in the emerging regional tier II and III markets.”
