I usually get mine from Thomas cook and preorder on line using the rate watch service they have. I check on Martin lewis moneysaving web site on the travel section (Moneymaximser) hey are usually the best on the high street. Post office and sainsburys/tesco are usually ok to. There is more options if you live near a train station etc or london with better rate but persdonally i dont risk online payments etc i remember what happened with crown currency so will only use specific companies.

Even when the best rate last year i remember was 1.65 available but they never give you the total exchange rate. I got 1.62 ish last may.

Usually from Post Office on line paying with PO credit card (no fees), pick up from your post office or delivered to your home next day (but has to be over £500 value)
