Hiya,

My September holiday statement is just in for my SAGA Platinum credit card.
It carries no annual fee and no charge for use in the EU. There is also no commission charged. The lowest exchange rate I got was 1.14 and the highest 1.16 but the majority of the purchases were 1.15. I always pay in Euros, never pounds ( and if u keep the docket they give u with the £'s or Euro's it is an eye opener when u compare with the statement rate.)
Meanwhile my OH was exchanging cash and getting about 1.06.
This is a very handy card to have when traveling !

Miriam

Default Exchange Rates

After comparing exchange rates I find the best place to change money
is Sainsburys who offer a better rate if you use a nectar card

Even better, the euro visa rate, the rate they use to work out cash withdrawals is even higher, great news.


Currencies fluctuate every day. The rate shown applies to transactions processed by Visa Europe on 13 December 2011 with a currency conversion fee of 0.00%.

1 British Pound = 1.177010 Euro

Tesco credit card offers a great rate, delivers cash to your door in a two hour specified time slot, free of charge over £500, no interest to pay if you clear the debt on your next statement date and you get Clubcard points - beat that.
