Hi Dean

Not for me, I live here in Venezuela. But I have someone coming over in a while and I just want to know what you are offering compared to local prices. I suppose (for your financial sake) you got them on the "parallel" market and you know how things are here.

You are going to have to do much better than that if you want to get rid of your BsF.

If my calculations are correct, what you are asking is well below what one can get here.

Also, anyone coming to Venezuela- bring usd $cash or euros and not GBP.

Current rate for 1£ is about Bs.40 so do the math.

In other words if you have BsF.1.000 then it's worth about £25.

As has been pointed out many times in this forum anyone buying Bs. outside Venezuela needs to first determine if they are the new BsF. introduced in January, 2008 and are not counterfeit. If they are the older bills they now have virtually no value.

The best suggestion for visitors to Venezuela is bring US$ cash in 50s & 100s & change them here with someone that you trust. Every hotel & B&B will be able to direct you to the right people - it's a way of life here.

Even at the official exchange rate 50p will get about 5 Bsf (1GBP = 9.8Bsf)

I think that the parallel market is about 26 to 1 now. What are you asking?
