Hi

Can someone help, I go on holiday next week and need some Euros, Anyone changed any recently what rate did you get and were from? Was it commission free?

I got 1.18 this morning at Thomas Cook. They were all offering 1.165 but increased a little when pushed.:)
Still not a great rate but I'm happy enough. It was commission free.
#2
order it at travelex and collect at airport that will prob get you the best rate

get it abroad from a cashpoint using a nationwide debit card. Always offers the best rates and commission free.

You sure? Check your receipt as they normally charge a £3.95 admin fee which they dont class as commission! :w00t:

we got 1.17 just the other day from the bit in cash converters, no commission. Most other places we tried was about 1.12

M&S are normally competitive.

It's either that or they built it into their exchange rate. It's never commission free from any agent.

Except the market rate is nearer 1.20 - meaning they 'factored' it into their rate.

i got 114 in menorca this week, so i imagine if you are going to spain anything better than that is good.

And? Can you get 1.20?

Got 1.15 at Tesco this morning not a great rate but I would have paid more in petrol driving elsewhere or #5 charges as under #500 if bought online. I was quite happy!

Yeah they seem to offer the best rates with outlets all over the UK

Website is here:

I think there are better rates available though if you live in London:

I'm not getting at you.

Merely commenting on the fact that despite the adverts of 'no commission' there is rarely, if ever, such a thing.

Yeah, I can get the top whack, because in Europe, I use my Nationwide card to withdraw from cash machines.:thumbsup:
#16
Awww Thanks everyone for your help, i will have a look in the places advised and check if it is commission free or if they charge an handling charge, I did see Thomas cook window today and it was 1.16 and said commission free but didnt go and check the handling charge...

Yeah, I agree the Nationwide card is very good and I'll use mine too after the first few days of holiday.I just like to take a wad with me to get started and T. Cook was hard to beat.
They all play the same game and will at least match each other to get the sale#

Meant to post this link earlier http://travelmoney.moneysavingexpert.com/holiday-money/

I know it's a small risk, but I don't take any currency with me. There's always an ATM wherever I go, and always at the airport.:thumbsup:

you do realise that "interbank" rates factor in their comission and charges dont you.....they are a mid point between the market highs and lows of the day.

always better to take hard sterling wherever you go for the best rates:)

Just to let you all know i got 1.20 today commission free, from one of the cash converters or gold places...sorry not sure what its called.

no, interbank rates do not factor in commission but are taken at the spot price at the end of the day the transaction occurred.

although you get better rates at the destination, you will never get a foreign street exchange offering interbank rates so sterling isnt a wise choice, or a safe one come to that compared to a cashpoint card
