Cashpoints at the airport ?

Asked by: 9th March 2011

I don’t really want to change any cash in the UK, preferring to get a better rate by withdrawing cash in Lanzarote.

Trouble is, I’ll be going in with zero Euros.  Is there a cashpoint near the arrivals area and if so, can anyone tell me exactly where it is?

    As soon as you come out of arrivals through the glass door, look to your left and there are cash machines there.

    There is also a cashpoint machine upstairs in the departures check in area . Im just mentioning this because if the machines in arrivals are ever faulty or empty,, ( yes it happens if its a weekend or period of heavy use ) ,then the chances are that the upstairs machine which is giving out less cash because people in that area are generally going home will be a 2nd option ! ..

    There are numerous cash machines in the resorts anyway !

    Hi Duncan,
    I would suggest not to get to much out at the cash point, Just enough for the day,
    You will get a better rate at the indian shops but need to be carefull with some as they will offer 1.16 on the board and give 1.14 when you go in saying the board price was travellers cheques or vice versa,
    In puerto del carmen i use Vnish, by Mulligans they pay as the board states, Never had a problem there,
    But at the thomas cook desk in manchester there giving 1.02 to the £, in lanzarote you get about 1.16 to the £. if you cash £1000 you get 140 euros more, not a bad night out for waiting,

    Thanks, everyone, who answered – much appreciated.
    In what is yet another example of rip-off britain, I bought 100 euros this morning at the PO just to have some cash in my pocket on landing.
    I was given 1.08 to the £.

    Have you tried travelex ?? They gave me a rate of 1.16 only 2wks ago and i think the rate at the moment is around 1.13. You can book it on line then pick it up from the airport
