Re: Exchange rate £ to €

Not sure for definate Roger, but that maybe the Business Rate. At my bank this morning I got Euros at the following exchange rate:

£1 = €1.0798

€1 = 0.9260

At the Post Office, for comparison, they were offering:

£1 = €1.0911

€1 = £0.9165

I took the Banks rate, because of the no commission on buying and return, plus other rates. The Post Office charged on returning.

I obviously got fed a load of bull s**t at the Post Office then. I can remember getting money back commission free before, but did not query it. Thought it might have been a change of policy.

Today the Lloyds TSB rate is:

£1 = €1.0868

€1 = $0.9201

Post Office is:

£1 = €1.0970

€1 = £0.9115

Thomas Cook have a printable voucher on their site, you get an extra 1% on the rate. Check your local Post Office first then nip round to see what you will get at TC, every cent counts!!

Some places on Corfu according to recent information received are offering €1.12 to €1.14 for £1, with 1% to 2% commission, which is obviously a slightly better rate. It looks like it is better to take a few Euros to cover yourself on arrival, and exchange more on Corfu.
