    Best Place on High Street to get foreign currency?

    Anyone know the best place, can't order online as I fly on wednesday and don't wanna take any chances!

    Thanks

    For me its first choice. they beat all the others on the high street. But dont pay the £3.50 unless you are going to bring any money back. Rates are rubbish for Euro at the mo if thats what you are getting.

    Whatever you do, dont leave it till you get to the airport as the rates there are lower!

    have a look around at prices, the post office is good if your changes more but i've used marks and sparks and that was pretty good IMO.

    where are you going? hope you have a great time :thumbsup:

    I second that (First Choice) as they always match or beat any rate I quote for Post Office, M&S etc.

    One that I've found to be good (although it's at the airport) is travelex, you can order online and pick up at the airport before you fly.

    Check here: travelmoney.moneysavingexpert.com/hol…ey/

    Sort by collected, and make sure it's not one of the places that has only one London branch...

    No.1 Currency. Check their rate and nearest branch , to you, online.

    tesco extra, post office, M&S, travel agents

    I usually go to Marks & Spencer for my currency

    Depending on how much currency you're changing over but I'd use one of the internet comparison sites to find the best rate for when you're wanting it.

    If you wanna change over less than 500-ish and walk into a store and have it sorted fast, M&S, the post office, thomson etc will do.

    Thomas Cook will beat post office prices
