Sharm airport

Just read some reviews on trip advisor that hav concerned me about Sharm airport where clerks call you aside and ask for your English money to change? Is this normal I always take sterling as a back up money and change if I need to in resort is this allowed?

Ditto: been going to Sharm since 2008 and it's never happened to us. If indeed it is happening just say No.

Where did you see this on tripasvisor?? I have been through sharm many times and never encountered this. You do sometimes get airport staff in departures asking you to change pound coins, that they have had as tips, into notes so they can take it to exchange burea.
