£-$ Currency

Been searching all over for the best rate...going in June. Although Crown Currency is good, after a lot of thought i declined because your money is not insured so if it goes bust your out of pocket. Thomas Cook offered a really good rate but i think ASDA is a bit better offering 1.50 today and you can order up to £2500. Hope this helps fellow Brits.

i have just bought a Fairfx pre payment card If you get it through the money market supermarket web site link in UK its free but otherwise you pay £ 10.00 for it i think.

I initially put £ 100.00 on it 2 weeks ago and got the rate of 1.50 when every body else was about 1.45 on $1000.00 this gave you an extra $ 99.00

Just another idea

fairfx are a good choice, card is free from them if you put £500+ on the card on your first go. They offer damn good rates (better than any high street) and it's linked to mastercard so you can use it anywhere.

Hold on as long as you can, the pound is rising again

keep your eye on it daily on the internet or bbc1

text page 241 this gives up to the minute rates.

the exchange firms work a day behine, so if you were going the next day check to see if the rate went down and buy str8 away, or visa versa!!

All I can say is that Thomas Cook aren't being very generous. have a look at x-rates.com and crown currency they are good 2-3% higher
