What company are you referring to, can you post a link please?

You don't say where your location is but I would prefer not to post, in fact I would advise against it.

Is the rate so good that it’s worth going to all that trouble?

Exactly. Unless you're sitting on a small fortune in Euros, just exactly how much extra return do you really expect to make? Unless you're desperate to have it back in your pocket as Sterling (?), you'd be better off sitting on it and choosing the moment to exchange by conventional means when the rate looks good.

swap it with someone going to euroland, that's what I do,

we agree to go with the rate shown on XE currency, everyone gets a good deal that way.

Or save it for next time/

Nichola C - would you be paying the charge for "insured post" or is that factored into the offer? Looking at the Royal Mail website:

https:/…uk-guaranteed

there'd need to be significant amounts of € to cover that level of charge. Personally, I'd be looking for the best rate at somewhere I could walk in with the cash and walk out with £. Many places offer a "buy back" deal when you buy through them - does that not apply to your purchase?

+1 to #4.

I once had some €'s left from a trip to Belgium and sold them to my sister for the going rate at the time.

And I ended up with a handful of Polish zloty coins worth about £3.50 after a trip to Poland. My brother was going to Gdansk for the weekend so I just gifted him the coins. He could have bought about 3 pints in Poland with the amount I gave him!
