Where do I get the best exchange rate for UK pound to Euro

Post by madsum » Mon Aug 14, 2017 2:30 pm

Hello,

I was working in UK for last couple of years. I saved about 10,000 thousand British pound. I got a better job offer from Finland. I'm planning to move to Finland permanently. So I would like to exchange all my pounds to Euro. I don't know where could I get the best possible exchange rate? Could it be in Finland or in UK? Please share your thoughts. Thanks in advance!

Wrong time to change pounds into euros.

But last time I was in the UK (January) the Post Office was giving the best rates.

If I were you, I would leave the pounds in a bank account in the UK (maybe earn some interest?) and/or use them to buy stuff you need, eg from Amazon etc
Only bring as much as you need and change the rest if and when the rate improves (ie not in the immediate, foreseeable future)
