Mobile Currency exchange - change in UK or US?

Hi All, just wondered what the general consensus is regarding exchanging into $. First time going to Orlando shortly, and usually when I go abroad, I take and get them changed locally into local currency since the exchange rates are usually better. Any views on this?

No I wouldnt change currency in America, they usually give an extremely poor exchange rate. Definitely better to get your currency in the UK.

Like above, I've never seen better rates in the US. Where have you changed in the past?

Welcome to the Dibb.

Change it here before you go... in fact, I dont think Ive ever seen anywhere over there to change it.

Its almost impossible to change in the USA and definitely not a better rate.

You can however just withdraw from a cash machine as and when you need it which would then exchange it from your bank account to cash at a good rate.

I agree, don't change it in USA, also don't change it at the airport as you will get a much lower rate there. I have used Covent Garden FX for years and never had any issues, it is delivered on whatever day you choose.
