I know it's very early in the season but does anybody know the Exchange Rate us Brits can expect from the The Banks, The Hotels and The Kiosks for our had earned dosh...?
Since Nov 2010 and With the demise of the once brilliant 'free' Nat West Flex Card (now chargeable although still cheaper than most) I now will interested to find out the best rates on the Island.
The Euro has fallen pretty much week on week for some time now and the best rate I can get locally via Intercash (paying cash and without commish/postage) is approx 1.095 Euro to the £. Aoout 2 months ago it was around 1.15 euro to the £.
I know on Rhodes The Banks/Hotels etc will take commish, and taking Sterling to exchange is fine by all of them but could be expensive so I will take my Flex Card as well.
Any info is appreciated and thanks in advance... regards, Jim
We travel from Gatport Airwick on Wed 25th May for a fortnight and our third visit to The Luca Cypria in Faliraki.
We have been told that Sophias Travel just over the road from the Sun Palace hotel gives a good rate of exchange.
We also have a Nationwide Flex card and some Euros left from a holiday a couple of years ago.
I have read on TA that yesterday the rate was 1.14 minus the 2% commission so we will just wait and see what Sophias Travel offer.
don't risk taking your cash to rhodes town,most of the kiosks there charge silly money,i've seen most advertising 4% but some can be higher,or 4% plus a 'service charge' of a few euros
Even with the charges it seems that it will be the better rate?
Since they introduced the charges we havent used it so will have to work out which rate is best.
TC too gave me a rate of 1.12 to the £. That was higher than my usual Intercash branch which traditionally boasts the best rate for paying cash and collecting.
