We've just been into our local town and the rate is nothing like these .. :(

Best one is 1.163.  The post office was 1.13!

May just take sterling as usual and get it from Vas at Marina like we usually do

Just ordered online via travelmoney.moneysavingexpert.com with the ICICI bank (FCA authorised) and have got 1.1734, so quite happy with that

Hopefully it will be delivered on Friday ..  ;)

Janis, I have used ICE bank for some time....and ICICI is a subsidiary. Used them in August and found the same high standard. Delivered by 1pm the next day.
The only problem is I now have two lots of passwords to remember... or in my case forget!! :)

I bought 500 worth from Moneycorp last week for two reasons - firstly, the rate was good at 118.83 and secondly to avoid me spending it lol!

Really Lokomo are you sure?
Boo hoo - that is a straight 1.2000 rate - not seen that for years!
My Euro tracker showed Sainsbury's at 1.1842 today?

e1.20 is currently bank rate for transferring funds from UK to Greece.

A e1.20 exchange for smaller amounts sounds good to me.

Yes it was defo 1.2 at Fairfx a few days ago but gone down a bit now due to the weekend and the possibility interest rates MAY go up. I knew I should have bought then.

1.192 now , just looked, so it's gone up a bit from yesterday. Should hit 1.2 again after the weekend I would have thought. Looking at the forecast it says that the rate should be getting better and better this year but you can never be sure . . . . .
