changing pounds to euros?

Postby gavilan » Fri Jun 30, 2017 12:39 pm

I am going to UK next week and am thinking to bring back some stirling ( not thousands, a few hundred) ... where would be the best exchange rate ... at the airport or my local Spanish bank?

Hi gavilan,

Neither of the above.........try using your local Post Office.......... :idea:

http://www.postoffice.co.uk/travel-money/euros

Or others..........Example............current rates will differ..........Homework time for you ........ :D

"However, in a survey of how many euros a holidaymaker could get for £500, the Post Office rates returned only €551, in comparison with €559.89 from Co-op Travel, €559.08 from Asda Money and €558.93 from Tesco"

Are you dealing with cash or money already in a bank account in the U.K.? If it's in a bank account you could use a Revolut card with consistently good rates, and ATM. If cash, you are at the mercy of the dealers.

worth looking at Martin Lewis' site on MoneySavingExpert.com?

If its transferring between banks, without a shadow of a doubt the winner for me has been www.transferwise.com . I've been using it recently to take advantage of the GBP collapse.

Anyone wishing changing euros to pounds, I would suggest getting in quick.

In my humble opinion, it cant get any "better" than this. The bottom surely has been reached !

Passing through Waterloo yesterday on my way to watch the "Gooners", picked up some Euros at 1.08 at "ICE"...

Hopefully that is the lowest price I will pay for "cash" for ever again !
