buying Euro's €

Hello all

Only 3 weeks to go now and as such Im looking into get the best deal I can for my £'s.

There are some reasonable rates going over here . The best I have seen so far was €1.187 but that was based on £1000 being exchanged .

Where is a good place to look to get my currency and also, Is there a decent bank in Alvor or Praia where I can get a good exchange rate .

Has anyone been recently and can advise me what the rate is over there please ?

All the best

Just to clarify, i was not suggesting all pre paid cards were not a good idea, just advising against the Travelex Passport. I tried to use it in the big supermarket in PDR and the ATM on the corner down the front by the Asian restaurant and both asked for a 6 digit pin, obvioulsy i tried the 4 digit but it would not work accept it. Secondly the advise Travelex give is useless as it just says what you know "Some ATM's in some countries require a 6 pin" and thats it, no solution. Strangly it did work in one restaurant, so my advice would be get a pre paid card but don't use Travelex and ask the 6 pin question to the seller.
