Was gonna buy 500 every month until I have what I need for both trips but will run the gauntlet and wait and see by how much it goes up by - fingers crossed it does!

Now there's an ex rate that would get my heart pounding! 1000 GBP = 12000 euro..... I know it's a typo but for a split second I was buying a villa in Arillas.......... Dream on Phil!

Welcome from me too LOKOMO. It's a very enjoyable forum, that some call the mad house!

Anyone needing to buy Euros are advised to wait a couple of days.I have just bought mine for early June visit so as always they will shoot up within the next few days and I will once again regret not waiting.                                                                                                                                        Ron.

haha Ron that made me chuckle.  Currently showing at 1.18 round our way.  Obviously better deals online but always nervous of using them after that big company went bust that year (was it Crown Currency?).  Did anyone involved ever get their money back I wonder?

It was Crown Currency that went Jo, yes. I used them for years and had my last delivery of cash from them a couple of weeks before they went bump !
I ordered my currency yesterday online and got exactly 1.20 , happy with that :-)
