Is anyone there at the moment, or going out soon who could check on Exchange Rates ? I am going at the end of the month and am just trying to organise funds and deciding when and where to buy my euros. The best rates on the high street here i have found today is 1.088 in the money shop (M&S is 1.0787 - They used to be decent but have gone terrible in the last few years).
Last year I went to Livigno and got a very preferential rate in the hotel (we were staying in the Galli Apartments) but the next hotel to ours was offering €0.90 to £1 which someone actually went for!
As a comparison I was away in Egypt over Christmas and before I went the best rate I got was 8.2 LE to £1 from The Money Shop, I got some english changed over there and got 9LE to £1 plus had to take some cash out the ATM and got 900LE for £106 which worked out 8.529LE to £1. So it might well be worth me buying in the resort?
