Thank you Kaz.... Was at Heathrow airport today and they were offering 7.75. Went into Travel Agents and got a few at 8.05, but knew it would be best to get there for the majority, just didn't know how much better.

The rate here is normally about 10% less than in Egypt. Don't know if you know but you can exchange monies on landing at the visa booths.

I know you can get it quite easily, but I always like to have a bit of local currency in my pocket, just in case I forget in the furor of the airport and I need to give someone a tip!

Well, to be honest the only time I've been to Egypt before was as part of a cruise, so I missed the excitement (?) of the airport, but I do remember how everyone wanted to help us part with our cash as soon as they could get anywhere near us!
