    Exchange rate euros

    How do I find out the currency rate in spain to exchange gbp to euros, and compare it to exchanging it here? as if I exchange my money there I should get more out of it.

    not neccesarily at the resort but yeah i agree take cash with you as you get a better rate there and no fees for withdrawing and converting at atms

    i generally load up a nationwide flexaccount with sterling and use that card at atms as its only 1 of a couple that dont charge fees. abbey zero being the other I believe.

    and ALWAYS select the withdrawal to be conducted in Euros otherwise the ATMs bank wil do the exchange for you if you select Sterling. and it wont be a good rate!

    Good advice, and you will always get a better rate than changing " in resort "..You need to be careful changing money in Spain, some places have high headline rates but give far less for any exchanges under about £30.000 ...always in very small print of course.

    I've always got far better rates for changing in resort, usually at beer/tobacco sellers I take a wad of sterling and change as I go, the rate can veary daily but It can anywhere. I take my CC for emergencies. I've never used a cash machine on holiday.
