    Best Place to get your Euro's?

    Hello all. I go away next Tuesday and I am yet to get my Currency.

    There is 6 of us in all. I just wondered whether certain places do offers if you get 'bulk'.

    There will be just under £2,500 to change.

    Any ideas on offers/best exchange rate?

    Thank you.

    No I am in Leeds - I should've put my location in really.

    Thank you for your reply though. I just doubt my mother will appreciate getting currency delivered.

    She was put off getting travel insurance through a Natwest Advantage Gold bank account!

    Bless.

    Thanks again though.

    That sounds pretty good.

    Again though, just looking for an 'instore' deal, Where we can walk in with pounds and leave with Euro's.

    I appreciate your input and I'd snap those offers up if It was up to me, just cannot upset anyone on this holiday, it's fragile as it is....

    I found Tescos had a decent price for Euros and said 0% commision.

    Maybe you could ring the airport up and see whats avaible there as weve just gone to amsterdam and the exchange rate on the boat beat anybody home here...

    You do get better rates for bulk buying from your normal travel agents. Not sure if the difference is worth that much though

    Usually get a much better exchange rate in the resort than the uk.

    Thats what I do, just take sterling and change it as I need it in resort. Have always gotten better rates doing this
