    I used [url]www.travelex.co.uk[/url] recently for Euros.

    Best rates I could find.

    Have a look ]HERE chrysha....Travel Money Maximiser will search out the best deal for you...

    I've just ordered £500 worth of us dollars via royalmail and they will deliver them to my door

    you get a great rate from travelex if you collect it from the airport. Alternativly Ive always found Marks & Spencer quite competitive. The post office isnt really that great.

    Western Union do about 1.24 for euros.

    I've often collected at the airport with travelex, but would just recommend getting minimal £100 worth and changing the rest at your destination, the rates are far better in other European countries. I've received much better rates in Spain and Greece this year.

    not better than a nationwide debit / credit card. They give intra-bank rates not on offer elsewhere (about 1.29-1.31 euros to GBP)

    Not sure about credit card, but Nationwide Debit card is the best rate anywhere, far better than any exchange rates for currency at any of the listed places at Travel Money Maximiser.

    [COLOR="Purple"]This is true, but I need it by tomorrow, don't have time to apply for a Nationwide card! Many thanks - I'll be more organised next time![/COLOR]
