Do you have a local Debenhans? They also will give you the online rate if you check it while you are in the queue. I always ask for the online rate and have never once been refused.

I think if you show a Morrisons more card (or whatever its called) then you get a better rate

Use Morrisons No1currency this week. Happy with it.

Would have gone Tesco or Asda but as people have said you cannot order online due to the Travelex breach.

Went and picked DS's dollars up this afternoon and they were all sealed up, normally the cashier counts it out. Anyway I got back in the car and thought I would check it before we got home and I only counted $248 not $250. But I hadn't noticed 2 of the $1 weren't $1 they were $2's

We have been a few times to Florida and in all the times we have been we have never seen a $2 bill. We didn't know they existed.

Hi, Asda is run by travelex, they have been hacked and been down since Nye.
You can still buy in-store but the exchange rate is from new years eve and has never changed. Everything they are doing is all paperwork so hand written reciepts etc...they also can't change the rates to pricematch.

we usually look at no1 currency first which is 1.3006 today and then JL which is slightly lower at 1.2901. if no1 currency rate goes up between you buying and collecting you will get the better rate.
