Hey

Definitely at home commission free. Rates are llower on Rhodes and 2% comm charge is applicable on most occassions.

Across the road from the hotel is Sofia'S Travel.

You can use your card to buy Euros or they will change sterling.

We have known Sofia & Manolis for 21 Years.

They can book trips or arrange car hire if wanted.

trev,i dont think winnie will be needing a car hire or a trip to change her money and doubt she will use her card :)

defianately change here in the uk.depending on how much you intend changing the rate will vary.

as i write,travelfx rate is 1.24,free delivery for £750 and over

debenhams rate is 1.23,you order and print your voucher,then take it to the store to collect your money.they also give you a £5 voucher that is valid on the day of purchase only.

when we left faliraki last week,the best rate was 1.20,with no commission .

it is worth checking your local asda as they are also good rates.

Hiya,Thanx all 4 responses! Sounds like better getting it at Home, we're used 2 going further afield, and normally cheaper buying the currency over there.

I'm sure we will pop into sofias Trevor,as they seem 2 highly recommended 4 trips :)
