    Your main post office branch is a good start., Usually theres no comission to exchange currency, If not, have a walk down your local high street and look at travel agents for no comission exchange.

    hi
    i would just go to the post office, they always have no commission charge to change it up for you, and also if you keep the receipt you can take back what u dont use and they will change it back into pounds for you (that never happens to me!!!..........)

    I picked up some euro today (holiday tomorrow :D).

    Post Office is commission free and was offering a rate of 1.2071 euro per £1 today.

    However, I got mine from M&S of all places. Commission free and exchange rate today was 1.221 per £1.

    As Becky said, it is probably best to avoid taking money out once you are away in case you incur withdrawal &/or commission from your bank.

    Have a lovely time in Greece :).

    Have you got a Co-operative Travel near where you are hun, work for them and we have some wicked rates.

    Its low at the moment, due to the sterling being weak. Get it over here as my customers have told me about getting ripped off abroad, also never ever look at airports, last week manchester was 1.1657 nasty.
