Advice – buying Euros
Does anyone have any tips or predictions on buying Euros?
Looking to bum my way round Europe for a while
So Will need some in six weeks time all going well and not sure weather it’s better/safer to buy now or leave it closer to when we need them, I guess Greece will have an effect, but it’s a bit beyond me knowing how this could effect the price?
Money is tight for me at the moment so a few extra euros to spend would make my travel plans stretch my time away.

If you are buying large amounts of cash Euros, do not buy from a High St bank or the Post Office etc. NEVER buy currency at the Airport. There are several Forex websites for companies based in central London that have far better rates.
Many can post up to £2500 of currency.
BEST FOREIGN EXCHANGE.com 1.3866
Post Office 1.3660
High Street Bureaus 1.3518
Marks and Spencer 1.3501
A FairFX card is good as you fix your rate when you load the card up. If you load it today you will get 1.3708 so not as good as you can get but better than the High St.Posted 2 years agodangeourbrainSubscriber
Asda was at 1.369 last night, based on the £100 I initially looked at, so didn’t need a large purchase to get their better rate (same rate at 1k and up from them). It was the best I could find yesterday for 1000€.
Given the surprising lack of 11th hour agreement last night though I’m a bit disappointed I didn’t wait till today but is expected a fair rally in the euro rate this morning.Posted 2 years ago
