Hi all, where going to Greece on tuesday and were wanting to buy Euro's, not sure on the best place to get them and wondered if any of you been away recently got a good deal on Euro's?

If you go on postoffice website you can get the delivered for free at a reasonable rate.I go them at 1.850 last week

EDIT its 1.953 at the mo which would give you 1095 Euros

I doubt that's the best rate you could get. Travelex' rate is currently 1.096, which would get you £1096 euros for £1000. You just order them on-line and collect them at the airport.

Quite a few of the others featured on the link I gave you do next day delivery too, so you can definitely get a better rate than 1.06...

thanks again

If you are in Central London try Ace FX at London Bridge (walkway) today's rate is 1.10 Euro's to £ with no commission.

i usually ge them from first choice. whatever you do dont get them from the airport! i find the that post office rate is lower than the travel agents. i think a lot depends on where you are. i remember the days off getting 1.45 for a quid! not anymore!

i always take sterling travellers cheques and cash them in greece you get a better exchange rate and have security
get them from post office
better safe than sorry

I've just used the Travelex cash passport card, you just load it up with the currency you require and then use it just like a normal cash card, you can use it at ATM's & shops and if you do it online they garentee the best exchange rate.
