Another currency question

Travelling from U.K. next week and not sure what currency to bring. If I bring Euros then change them for Rupees I would go through 2 exchange transactions, costly?

I can bring visa card and obtain money from cash tills but that would be quite expensive too. Can I change some £20 notes at the airport?

Forget about buying euros and avoid 2 times the negative fx rate. Bring GBP and change them to SCR.

Hotels have disastrous fx rates and quote everything in SCR.
