Where to sell back unused foreign currencies

I've got a few hundred Swedish money left from the trip. Where will be the best place to exchange this back to pounds without incurring a commission charge?

    You are dreaming :rolleyes: . You can look for low charge - that can be explicit or hidden in the exchange rate. Try Post Office and Marks&Spencer. For the future get Nationwide debit or cash card and you will never have this problem again. You will be able to withdraw as low amounts of foreign currecy as you need every time without any comission and with the best exchange rate.

    Yep, the comission is built in to the exchange rate. They will buy back at a rubbish rate, but the only alternative is to save them and go to sweeden again.
