    Everywhere is much the same. Unless you want to change many thousands, the differences amount to just a few pounds. Paying by credit card tends to give you a good rate as the banks use money market rates rather than tourist rates when converting currencies. This method is only good if your card provider does not make overseas charges. The Post Office is currently offering 1.19.

    use your card DCH to pay for your hotel bill dont want to be running about with all that cash.
    Your card will get you the best exchange rate.

    Also remember a lot of companys/banks charge you for changing money so you are not really getting 1.19 / 1.20 or whatever.
