Do banks accept euros as deposits?

If they do, is the rate better than what you would get at a travel bureau?

Your question is a contradiction.

Travel bureaus change money for different currencies; they do not take money as deposits.

What exactly are you trying to achieve?

At the moment they would probably accept your old boots and give you a good exchange rate for them. Only thing they don't want are £ notes. They are dropping in value like a stone.

"Travel bureaus change money for different currencies; they do not take money as deposits" - thats why I asked if "Banks" would accept euros and credit my account with £s. The buy back rate from travel bureaus is unfavourable compared to what they sell to you at.

"What exactly are you trying to achieve?" - My bank to accept euros into my account. They must handle euros every day (at least via head office).

I know it was unlikely but was just curious. The pound has dropped quite a bit against the euro so I've benefited.

Why don't you ask your bank?

Should do, I once deposited Dollars I had left over from a holiday

The buy back rate is always lower than that at which you first converted them,unless of course the rates change dramatically, how do you think they make their profits?? They will take any favourable currency but will effectively make some charge.
