Stuck with leftover coins when travelling?

Turn them into vouchers with Coindrum!

Coindrum – Making coints count


If you are a frequent traveller, you must have come across this situation many times: getting stuck with leftover coins.

The Problem with leftover coins:

  • They are a nuisance during security checks;
  • They might not be the currency of your destination;
  • They often go unused.

José Rosa, Managing Director of Lojas Francas de Portugal

The new Coindrum service is a great offer for passengers to dispose of their unwanted coins whilst getting more value for their money. Beyond solving an inconvenience the service will also get more people to start browsing the LFP retail offerings.

The Solution by Coindrum

Coindrum provides airports with self-service units that turn leftover coins into duty-free vouchers worth 110% of deposits.
