    Best way to exchange Pounds to Philippine Peso

    Best way to exchange Pounds to Philippine Peso 15th Dec 17 at 10:59 AM
    Hi,

    The date for my flight to Philippine is approaching. I have discovered that in Philippine the usage of credit card is very low (well, not a big surprise) and money changer are just tourist traps.
    So, I need to change around 1000 GBP in Pesos. I tried to see what I can do here in the UK, I arrived MSE travelmoney microsite. I reports TravelFX and BestForeignExchange as the best changers. However, I read many old comments about TravelFX plus the fact that the company behind is a little bit 'obscure'.
    So, I know the choice is mine, but is really TravelFX a scam and I should head for Tesco or not?

    Moreover, I read that the biggest banknote in Philippine is 1000 Pesos and like for 500 Euro, no one normally accepts it. Is it possible to negotiate the banknote denomination when you order money online?

    Thanks a lot
    S.

    Why not ask this in the correct forum?

    Why a currency exchange question isn't right in the currency exchange forum?

    This is not a currency exchange forum. Its for the victims of CCE who went bust some years back.

    You need the Flights, Currency and Car Hire forum.
