    Euros to Sterling
    I have 500 euros to cash back to . Toured a handful of banks for rates. The current guide price for 500 is 445, though I know I could never get that! The banks gave me figures around 408; I would like to do better than that. Luckily there is a family owned pawnbrokers etc in my town which does currency as a sideline! One of the banks told me I could not get a better rate anywhere locally!

    Their current offer is 430; I'm not going to do better than that am I? Unless someone knows better?

    Ask around friends, family, work colleagues etc, it's almost certain that you know someone who'll be visiting the Eurozone in the near future. Trade with them and get the full 445.

    445 guide price? You've made that up.
    432 is the max you will get, unless you exchange with someone who wants them for travel.

    They do point out that it's a mid price and not available at that rate to the likes of us! As I mentioned.

    Where can I get 432 please other than selling them privately?

    For 2, forget about it. Take the 430 or wait for someone who wants them for a holiday.

    What are cheapest months to travel to Europe, for example Bulgaria?
