Ruben Exchange

Hi, I've noticed that the Euro exchange rates on the Rubem Exchange website generally are 1 cent better than the best collection deals in the UK (even when purchasing online).

Thus, I'm considering just getting my Euro when I arrive in Benalmadena.

Just to check, are there any hidden charges when you buy from there?

E.g. today it is offering 1.1560 euros, would I get that full rate (if paying with sterling cash)?

Thanks, Brian

Certainly Rubens at the moment not the best rate, they must be paying for the celebrations, all the shops on the top road were .75 of a cent better then Rubens and our local Carihuela shop a cent higher, the first time in my memory. Think ths is because other shops use previous days Rubens rate as early next day guide, when rates dropping as they have done last week, caught people out,

Ian saw 2 shops on main road up from Rubens, who were matching his rates quite a few times during our 2mth stay, but as the rate was only being matched we still used Rubens, its a big shop and you have room to put your funds safely away before leaving :-)) never seen his rate beaten, sounds like folks are chasing his tail...x
