There's a machine outside reception that exchanges currency, you just put your currency in & get egyptian pounds out, not sure the smallest amount available though
Great thanks, the smallest I seem to be able to order is a 50.
At the IB bank I got mixture of notes. Including 5LE notes :D
Sorry what is the IB bank? Sound silly now!
Saranibs: if they have a foreign exchange booth, try your local branch of Thomson - they may be able to help you with small denomination notes. UK banks will only deal in 50LE notes and above but I've previously been able to get 1, 5 and 10LE notes from Thomson's. Obviously, change your £ to LE in ATMs when over in Egypt (the exchange rate is about 10% better then here in the UK) and if you need more low denomination notes just ask for them in your change - most places are happy to help.
Thanks very much for the advice
