    Where to change euros into pounds? 24th May 09 at 10:55 PM
    Hi all, just wondering if anyone can advise me where it would be best to change euros into pounds. We did not get euros in the UK, they were a gift from a friend in my country and we want to put them into our English savings account. Where has the lowest commission/fees etc if you didn't buy the euros off them in the first place?

    Thanks
    This was 6 months out of date so I've changed it.

    Depending on the amount involved you may find the best bet is to sell them to someone who wants euros. Split the difference between the buy & sell price and you both gain. If you are based in Hertfordshire or near Heathrow I might be interested.

    Afraid we're based near Darlington. We have e1000, unfortunately don't know anyone who needs that amount.
