    Tesco with a Tesco CC or Post Office have been good in the past.

    If only after $100 it doesnít really matter where. Debenhams in CMK have an exchange.

    Whatís the benefit of using the Tesco cc in Tesco then? Other than clubcard points.

    Martin Lewis money exchange website will tell you the best rates.

    If you decide, book online for collection in shop and you will usually get a better rate than just going in to a shop.

    You don't get charged any transaction fees with a Tesco credit card in store. If you ask them for the online rate they normally give you that.

    As said above I've always used Tesco or Debenhams on the high street if I need cash.

    We always use Tesco, booked online with their credit card for reasons above. Just to add, you can often collect at a large Tesco that doesnít have a foreign exchange bit.

    Cheers all.

    I'm gonna head to Tescos tomorrow. There's a couple within 2 miles from work that do currency exchange.

    Will use my Tescos CC as recommended.

    Just check they donít charge you interest from day of transaction if you use the Tesco CC to pay mate. Iíd pay cash or Debit card if possible.
