[via PDK]   The term “redemption center” may be throwing people off.  Here in the states I believe about 95% of redemption locations will be at banks that are set up for it with people trained to exchange foreign currency and equipment for verifying currency.  When I say the term “redemption center” it just means a place, branch, bank, location where we will go and exchange.  I expect it will be the same in the UK and the rest of the world as it is in the US.
