I agree with this but also set up to pay full balance by direct debit as you could get stung

We've always used FairFx but got some great rates with a card from revolut.com

Azimo has been offering me good rates so far. you can take a look.

Use Revolut, load up in advance and withdrew petty cash from ATM on your arrival, use the card to pay for everything else you need.

Revolut as above

Thomasexchange usually good rates

I use Fairfx for cash and Revolut for card.

Virgin Money had the best PrePay card last time I looked, but check with your bank, and find out what fees they charge for overseas withdrawals; sometimes the cheapest option it to just use your debit card to draw a lump sum from the ATM when you arrive.
