- Best place for Euros?
In terms of rates? This site basically compares rates for you, shows you the euro rate for each so just look for the best one! – http://www.money.co.uk/travel-money/best-high-street-exchange-rates.htm
Are you looking to buy online? Post office good but never bought online.
ICI Bank? http://www.icicibank.co.uk/personal/euros.html never heard of them but rate looks good.
https://www.thecurrencyclub.co.uk/money/ also looks good and free delivery!
Hope that’s helped, enjoy France!Posted 4 years agomrmoofoMember
Check with you debit cards if they levy a transaction fee for every transaction.
Taking cash out with a UK debit card in Germany costs you around 3.50 GBP. So if you can live with that, that could be the easiest route.
Obviously, when you buy currency, you will also have to exchange it when you get back – whic costs and is a PITA. I have 160 GBP worth of roubles are the moment – I will have to wait until I am at Heathrow!
Do NOT cchange at airports: the exchnage rates are the louiest in the world. They were offering around 1 GBP : 1 Euro this morning ….Posted 4 years agodarryl1983Member
Recently went to Lanzarote myself opted for a prepayment card from CaxtonFX, No charges and the interest rate was better than anything i could get on the high street.
Really didn’t want to be carrying around a load of cash, so it worked pretty well.
Also it was pretty handy being able to log on to the Caxton website at the hotel and top up the card when we’d spent all our money on the first day booking activities for the rest of the week.Posted 4 years ago
