Exchange rates

Hi we are coming to this area on the 29th of July, would it be better to get my Euros here in the UK or is the exchange rate there better ?

currently its about 1.22 Euro to the pound round me.

I would say get them before you leave, the rate in the village is always a bit lower than the uk

Some friends of ours have just returned from Mykonos where they only got €1,15 for their English notes. and a meal for 4 was €75 WITHOUT alcohol (they are non drinkers) I hope to get a cheaper meal for 4 when I visit Mastichari in August:-D:-D

€75 does sound a lot but i guess it depends where they ate, what they had and number of causes.

However 1.15 is poor, Tthe other month we were in Gran Canaria and only got 1.18 euros to the pound in a local shop, the hotel we stayed in tried to say their 1.05 euro to the pound was good value when i asked what the rate was!

Exchange rate today is 1.18. My office provides an exchange service, but I also have an ATM machine, and I understand people are using pre loaded cards a lot this year, this may work out cheaper for you? Check with your bank before you arrive what the charges are.
