right guys

we are off to Ireland next month and im looking to find the best deal for my Euro's

i want to change approx £400 so wheres the best place to do this, obviously weighing up the exchange rate and any charge made to do so?

Any one recently seen any good deals?

Its ok, and is commission free buy back also. I always go to marks and spencers.
#2
Found post office to be good with exchange rates & no fee either. Depending on the type of account, your bank may also offer good deals.

thanks guys

just looked at thomas coo, similar price there, 560 Euros for £402, no fee 1.39%

so looks average?

exchange rate is pretty cack at mo, i tend to go for the 1.41% but its peak time now so its been 1.39% for about 3-4 weeks. Get them when ya can (getting mine today) otherwise they could go further down. BTW if your going to Dublin, its WELL expensive since they have changed to the Euro! Robbers, but have an amazing time chickaroonie x

M&S I always find is the highest yet £5 delievery. Usually they have a similar rate in store so can try there and save on the postage fee :thumbsup:
#6
tesco 1.42%

570 Euros,charge £5 delivery so £405.62

all seem pretty similar

wooohooooo :-D :-D

xe.com worth trying or take a Nationwide debit / credit card for best rate AND no chance of excess cash.
#14
i only have an Electron card?
#15
Worth calling em n asking rate but I don't think it'd be amazing.
Amicus Diamond cards do great deals as well, but salary req to get one is through the roof.

Try this site :thumbsup:

I've used it a lot to buy dollars for my holiday and ended up going through Saga at the time.
#17
thank you :)

saga rate = Euro 575.00 1.426800 for £403.00

looks best so far i think
#18

If you exchange with Saga I don't think they expect you to make it back.:giggle:

I always go with [url]www.travelex.co.uk[/url]

Fantastic rates online, and you can order online & pick up at the airport :)

Don't use them face to face though, order online 1st (better rate)

I'm not sure, sorry. I hardly ever bring any money back with me. I also seem to work out how much i need luckily or i just end up spending it anyway. The site might tell you about any buy back deals. :)
#30
thank you, you have all been very helpful :)
#31
any updates from anyone?, looking to buy pretty soon

My advice would be to take plenty of money, and whatever you have left, spend buying me the biggest present you can possibly bring back with you :thumbsup:

I always use Saga, next day Special Delivery included at no extra charge over £300.

Rate is 1.4262 at the moment.

It is charged by Saga, but is actually sent out from Travelex, always arrives the next day, never fails.

Enjoy Dublin.. ;-)

Just order via Travelex online & pick up from the airport. That way your guranteed it will be there, and can safely pick it up at your leisure :D
