Hi, does anyone know of a spanish web site that will give the latest exchange rates, I am trying to find out if it is better to change holiday money here or in Spain.

It is almost always better to make the Exchange abroad, they don't usually apply Rip-Of Commissions.

Change in Spain as you need it, but shop around the kiosks for a good deal, cos they vary..

Agree with jakedawe and dadyassa but here click here you can check up-to-date rates to/from any currency.

Be very, very, very, careful with exchange kiosks in Spain - some are scams offering fantastic no-commission deals - which you will find out after you have got less than you expected, are for amounts like £2000 and over.

And surprise, surprise, they can never actually do such a deal as they "haven't got enough Euros".

This site lists the rates you are likely to get changing £ to Euro here in the UK. This is lower that the rates given on the sites listed above, and is typical of UK banks, travel agents and American Express.

As DieSse says, be very careful when changing abroad. Make sure you know exactly how many Euros you will actually receive in your hand.

"No commission" is so often a scam at these small exchange offices. I have seen it happen to unsuspecting travellers often.
