We did a quick check of Euro currency rates available today at 5pm and compared online providers along with the rate you would get if you turned up at the Post Office, a Bureau de Change at Gatwick Airport and Heathrow Airport, along with the rates on offer from these if you reserve and collect.
The rate difference today wasnt as extreme as some days, but the savings are still worthwhile. Changing £1000 you could get an extra 50euros today by pre-ordering and getting this delivered ratehr than just getting your travel money at the airport.
