I've been banging my head against a brick wall now for a few hours trying to work out what to do about currency.
1)Take Debit Card.
2)Take travellers cheques.
3)Take English pounds.
4)Take Egyptian Pounds
Here are my thoughts on these alternatives, if I am getting this wrong would someone please correct me.
If I take my debit card to get cash from the ATM's in Sharm am I getting the Egyptian rate or the one my bank currently has at home? and I will pay the compulsory charge for the priveledge.
Never really got on with travellers cheques...too much messing about, and believe me I will spend all of my money so the advantage of being able to return the travellers cheques is lost on me.
As I see it taking English Pounds is the best way for me to go, as I will know exactly what I am getting for my money, no charges..
The rate over here for Egyptian pounds is very poor, someone said you can get 10.5 over here but I'm yet to be convinced by that one. Travelex seem to be one of the best at the moment.
