    Portugal Holiday Exchange Rate Question and Tobacco Prices

    Banned
    Hi. Has anyone just come back from Portugal? What I would like to know is the exchange rate from £'s to Euro's. Is it worth changing in Portugal or do it here before I go? Also, any price on Golden Virginia hand rolling tobacco would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    just so you know prices in Portugal for most things have become very expensive. I go once a year normally and my parents have just returned today and said things are a lot more costly than last year.

    Thanks for that. I think Portugal's looking a bit like Greece regarding their finances :!:
    Any idea as to exchange rates?

    Portugal are in serious trouble and there is a quite a bit of political crap going on at the moment.
    I rate here is a round £1 - €1.20 i think my dad said he got around €1.13/14 over there.

    But im sure you will have a good trip!

    Thanks. Looks as if the rate here is best. Just wait now and see if anyone has news of baccy. Well, you just have to stock up.

    Also Ali Super (the biggest supermarket chain) is now non existent over there! Where abouts are you going?

    Probably too late to be of assistance to you, but others may wish to know, I couldn't find out before I went. Just come back from Portugal and Golden Virginia was 4.95 euros for 50 gram pack. Any shop as prices are set.
