cash points in Naqb bay

What do people think is the best option - take sterling and change or just use cash points or a bit of both- any replies appreciated.

Based on the numerous posts I have read there are machines that will change sterling into L.E notes. You could be charged for using your card abroad and you would have to let the bank know you are going.

First time in Egypt in September so I'm no expert but have been reading up.

Have a great holiday!

Hi check with your bank, my account gives me free cash withdrawals but many charge you a hefty fee. Failing that take English cash and exchange in sharm the exchange rate is far better, over 12 egyptian pounds to 1 British. Plenty of places to exchange or many hotels now have machines where you feed in your English notes and it gives you egyptian :)
