    US dollars $

    Need to exchange some £UK to $US for when am in San Francisco at Xmas / New Year. Saw on here somewhere a while back about a place that gives better rates if you buy in advance, but can't seem to find it now... Any ideas??

    I know Marks and Spencers can be really good.

    they do a lovely line in slacks.....

    I know a place that will do $8 to the pound. Freshly printed in front of you, no less!

    Doesn't that travel money services look a bit suss? "I'll send you my £1000, send me the dollars in a couple of months!" or does it not work like that?

    that's supposedly how it works... think i'm going to stick to travelex or pretend i'm a nana and get them from saga....

    Try crown currencies. I got the best deal last month from them. Everyone else was paying 1.95-1.96 and they paid 1.98. Though difference was only $20 for £500 money, it was still an extra $20 for me. You really need to apply 2 weeks in advance for the money to be delivered on time for you. You can google for their website.

    These are the best at the moment. If you want more than £300. Free next day delivery. No commision.
    This was found through MSE.

    Travelex offer to match a better rate if you can find it and you can collect at the airport. Use the online service though the rates at the airport are rubbish.

    If you have a nationwide credit/debit card no commission charge and a better rate than you can get anywhere. The debit card also lets you withdraw money from a cash machine as well without commission at the same good rate. The credit card will start charging for cash withdrawals only from mid october.
