We arrived home Monday and using our Nationwide credit card we got a rate of exchange of 1.179 which was not too bad.

Thats the idea Dave...Best bit about changing over in Kassiopi is you get a safety deposit box to put your bits and pieces in, saves you lugging it all around with you where ever you go. I never go looking for the highest exchange rate because it will only be one or two cents difference from one end of the village to the other...Clap

I just tell Vera at Cosmic in Kassiopi how many Euros I need to pay for Agathis apartment then Vera tells me how much that is in pounds...job done.
 
I put the rest of my pounds plus our flight paperwork and passports in their safe deposit box and just change up my pounds when I need to after that...no worrys...Thumbs Up

A month ago the interbank rate was 1.15430 so you got 10 cents to the pound more than the banks were getting. Wow.

The post office rates are usualy pretty lousy but they have handiness in their favour.

Hi,
Have any of you looked at ASDA they seem to be giving the best rate at the moment, commission free. We go May 13th so have been looking around over the last week. I think its 1.15 today.

Hi Daveneil,
All I can advise is to keep an eye on the exchange rate and try to judge when it is best to buy. I have been watching it this week and it has risen from 1.14 on Monday to 1.18 today, which I assume is due to the Cyprus problems.

Here is the euro price over the last 4 weeks.
The column on the left(vertical) tells you how many pence you have to spend to buy one euro.

Very up and down at the moment with the Cyprus problems etc.
Its anyones bet when to get some but we will be taking sterling with us and changing it in Kassiopi so we will get what we get.
Last September when we went we got a good rate but in the June we got quite a bit less.
At the end of the day we are in Corfu and everything else is a bonus.
