How much are you going to change?

I always change what I need for the first 24 hous anywhere in the UK, but change the bulk once abroad as they tend to give better exchange rates. Though I haven't been abroad since the pound fell so much.

That's what I heard. I think I will change £50-£100 and then change some when I get there. Should I take the English cash in hand or just use my debit card?

For that amount, it's probably not worth going out of your way to find a deal.
Just get from wherever is the most convenient.

Best place - an ATM in Amsterdam

Travelex.

Order online and pickup on the ariport on your way to Amsterdum (Dont try to buy on the airport though, it will be a rip off).

Good things:

1. Best price guarantee in the UK
2. Optional "buy back plus" £3.99 which guarantees that travelex buys your foreign money on the same rate on which you purchased from them in case the exchange rate goes down :)

During my last trip to Europe, I bought some cash from them as a backup and used nationwide debit card to withdraw cash there, the exchange rate was always better than the one offered by bureues de change in the UK.

I will differ with that with due respect. Most of the debit cards charge at least 2.5% cash withdrawl charges on top of poor exchange rate, so it could be worthwhile to check what your bank charges here
