Travelex LED tickers at UK Airports

Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief


Has anyone else seen the new LED tickers at Travelex at various UK airport terminals?

Harry Filer, Managing Director at Surrey based Vision-Text who manufactured and installed the LEDs explained that the signs (which contain 100mm high text in order to provide variable moving messages) are being used predominantly in Travelex exchange rate bureaux in Gatwick, Stansted and Heathrow airports.

Vision-Text have supplied exchange rate boards to Travelex previously but the reason, most probably why we (particularly) noticed these is that the new displays have bright yellow moving text. Harry tells us that these can be clearly read up to 50 metres away!
