Euro rate in 2009
« on: March 06, 2009, 09:38:03 PM »
I am due to fly in 8 weeks and have put off buying any euros because of the pitiful rate. Could anyone getting any please give us the heads up as to the rate and from whom. I thank you.

We have just got €1.085 to £1.0 at the local post office. This was dependant on changing over £500. It is a lot better than what we got at Xmas and the same as back in november. It is though still pitiful.

Well - it is moving slowly up!
Who would have thought that the UK would have such a bad dive, Swedebasher - you have 8 weeks to hope for a big upturn,
either Super-Gord will make it work - or we are in for a real rough time!!

May be worth waiting to see what the first visitors get in the village as well as that can sometimes be the best bet. :)

Travelex  - €1.0865
Ice - €1.09
Moneysupermarket -€1.0769
Post Office   -€1.0834
Tesco - €1.0833
These are ones I have just looked up on the internet and there is not really much betwen them at moment but always best to go for commission free ones.

There appears to be no better in SS these days as you pay commission and that wipes out any trifling rate improvement you get above the UK.
TC1 please wash your mouth out with carbolic, lowering the tone(cough) by mentioning the blasted G word. Emigration anyone??

Would you please refrain from slagging off my BOSS! He may be useless, he may be a bore but he's still my BOSS! I have a duty to run him down, I'm underpaid enough to earn that right!

The two best places in my nearest town of Great Yarmouth are offering 1.02/1.03. Commission free natch.

Saw €1.04 at the Post Office this Morning so can only assume it may be better elsewhere as they don't always have the best rate.If I remember last year all the supermarkets did currency as well and they were quiet good. :)
