Very bad currency exchange rates.
I've exchanged money before with Thomson and always been relatively happy.
So, when I booked a hotel for stopping in on my return from holiday in China, I had no hesitation anout ordering some Hong Kong dollars and Chinese yen.
I purchased my currency for £750 thinking all was well.
But I was horrified the next day, when I found I could have purchased the same amount of currency elsewhere for £620, a loss of £130.
I thought Thomson had made a genuine mistake.
But they said "No", I had paid their going exchange rates.
And could not do anythig about it.
