    I need to change some Sterling into Euros; does it matter where I do this (in terms of getting the most for my money) or is it roughly the same most places? Where do you recommend I convert it?

    Post Office definitely. They don't charge you and if you happen to have quite a bit left over after your holiday or whatever, bring your receipt and they will change it back to £s for free.

    I always find the coop/travelcare do a good deal....usually no commision if you're exchanging enough and their reates are usually much better than the post office or any bank rates (banks will only usually change money if you have an account with them and their rates are usually ok but they charge commission unless it's included as a bonus of your current account - and they don;t normally have it in the branch but have to order it in).
