  • I believe Tenerife Sunshine have an outlet in Los Gigantes, they publish their exchange rate everyday on Facebook.  Today it is standing at 1.21 whether this is the best or not I don´t know, not living in LG

  • Try the exchange shop by the LG bus stops, adjacent Tipsy Terrace.

    €1.21 today - usually 2/3 cents less than the official bank exchange rate and no commission.

  • The best way to obtain euros is with a Santander debit card. You get the bank rate of the day ie 1.24 today from the Santander cash point and no commission is taken.

    is this santander debit card issued in uk?  i was under the assumption that no uk based current accounts issued debit cards which if used overseas did not incur high charges.....

  • If you have a uk issued Santander debit card there are NO charges incurred but you must use only a Santander ATM machine

  • I think you have to have a Santander Zero card not to be charged any commission and this card can be used at any ATM or in shops. Also select the amount you want in euros not £'s.

  • I have a Santander 123 current account and the ordinary debit card can only be used to draw euros from a Santander ATM and no commission is taken and the bank rate of the day is what I get ie approximate 3 more than the exchange shops

  • That's great news, flossie55. I used to have a Zero card but since changing to the 123 Account, I assumed there would be commission to pay if I used my card at L.G. ATM. This will save me having to bring a load of cash with me on the plane. Thanks again.
