    How does Nationwide foreign exchange rate compare? 9th Aug 09 at 1:02 PM
    I have a Nationwide Debit Flexaccount which, according to this site, is one of the cheapest ways to spend money abroad.
    However, I am a bit confused. Whilst it's true that this card doesn't have any of the usual charges or fees that others have, doesn't the best deal have to take into account the exchange rate too? ie would buying foreign currency in this country from whichever organisation offers the best exchange rate (and no commission etc) before I go on holiday, be better value for money if the exchange rate is preferable to that offered by Nationwide?
    Would be grateful for advice/experience. Thanks, Mo :confused:
