thomas cook foreign currency - BEWARE
Found 10th Dec 2013
Thomas Cook in their town centre shop window displayed the euro exchange rate at 1.17 I had checked around and this seemed a good rate. I made the mistake of not confirming the rates and requested £200 worth of Euros and was asked if I wanted to round it up to just under £205 no amounts were mentioned and I handed the money over. In exchange the lady handed over 220 euros I queried this as it worked out at around 1.07 and they displayed 1.17 in the window and was told thiis was for over £500 worth of euros with a passport. This was not displayed in the window. So guys be aware always ask the exchange rate first before you hand money over. Don't feel ripped off like me.
