Changing into Euro's

Hi We are going for One week in May, My question is are we better changing all our money in Britain or changing some in Lanzarote?

from 20 years of experience,i have always found it better to change money in lanz,you get about 2 cents more to the pound,so on a hundred pounds thats an extra 2 euros.

We changed our money in Costa Teguise and got a good exchange rate,just be carefull when looking for the rate displayed outside the Indian shops the rate they are sometimes quoting the exchange rate for Travellers cheques,which no -one uses now

Please also be careful when using the Asian shops as even though it often states 'No commission' they will often try to give you a few euro's less. They tried it with me last time, I got my money but it was embarrassing having to ask for the correct change.

I usually just use the cash machines anywhere in Europe and although I am charged I get a good exchange rate. Hopefully there are plenty of Cash Machines in Lanzarote
