i am going to the Royal Sun hotel in santa susanna, for a short stay, please can anyone help me and advise me on as to where the tobacco shops are situated from the hotel, and if they are open this time of year.
this is the one used by most of the tobacco tourists as the exchange rate for sterling is usually very good and you will normally get some sort of freebie with any reasonable sized purchase.
i believe the one at the papi also uses dynamic currency conversion, so using any card there will incur extra charges.
Yes they do use dynamic currency conversion - as with almost all the tobacco shops in Spain I have used - so you must ensure that you ask to pay in Euros and NOT in Sterling.
This is generally good advice anyway. Wherever you are paying by UK credit or debit card, always ask to pay in the local currency. (If they say you can't do this, then you have to either go elsewhere or decide if it's worth stumping up the extra.)
