    Can't order required amount currency 7th Feb 18 at 5:16 PM
    Hi, am sure there is a good explanation but it escapes me. I am trying to preorder some euros to collect but it keeps changing the amount to a higher amount. I want 150 euros and it changes it to 160 and have noted it does it with all "odd" ten amounts. ie 130 goes to 140, 170 goes to 180 etc etc..... I am sure euros come in less then 20 euro notes so not sure why this issue? It is with no1currency.com that I found through the money maximiser thingy on here. Any words of wisdom from anyone?

    Take a sensible card with you overseas and withdraw the exact amount you want there.

    Perhaps they only stock 20 Euro notes, in which case simply order 140 Euros or 160 Euros.

    Take the hit and treat them to an extra 10 euros.
