Unless you are with nationwide don't use cash machines.

Try cheque centres ltd, if you have one near you.

I couldn't believe it as I always thought these places were a rip off but they were the cheapest I found about a year ago, thats including the post office and M&S.

Check their rates here.

Debit cards abroad costs

These tables demonstrate that you get more for your money when you use your Barclays debit card to buy things overseas than if you change your money before you travel.

Remember, you can use your card just as you do in the UK to buy food, groceries, clothes and gifts and pay for entertainment and eating out. Memorise your PIN, or change it to something more memorable before you travel as you may not be able to use your card in some places without it.

Shops and restaurants abroad may give you the option to pay in local currency or Pounds sterling when you use your debit card. To ensure you are not charged excessive commission, we recommend you pay in local currency so that we handle the currency conversion for you. We use favourable wholesale exchange rates and only include a 2.75% fee to cover our handling costs.

Euro Foreign currency value of Sterling
