Best Place To Pick UP Foreign Currency??

Found 17th Sep 2008
A friend is going to Norway soon and she has no idea where would be the best place to pick up some Norwegian Krone. I know the Post Office does commission free, but i dont think they always do the best rates. A few times I've found out that your better off waitin till your in the country to exchange your cash.

Whats peoples experiences and what do you think?

All help and advice appreciated, thanks in advance.

i used my credit card at the airport in greece and had a better exchange rate then i had got at m&s the week before, so think its just one of those things, you can get a good exchange rate from one place on one day and another place may be better the next etc,etc
