I know i'll need some cash for tips etc on the island, but wondered what people thought.
Firstly, can I ask if the island shop lets you put stuff on your room bill or if you have to pay upfront (like in a normal shop)
We fancy doing a couple of bits whilst there, possibly sea fishing, and also a massage etc, but I am aware that this will go on my bill at the end of the holiday.
If we pay cash at the end, we'll need to get the dollars from a bureaux de change, at a tourist rate of about 1.5 to the pound.
If we pay on visa debit card, we'll get a better bank rate to the pound SET BY visa(i think) which I assume about 1.7 or 8 but I'll be hit with a 2.99% charge....
I cannot for the life of me work out if i'd be better off either way... Any one else done it this way?
