I wanted to buy $200 and they said it would be around 129 pounds. (when midmarket exchange rate was 1.8 $/£. Then I was asked for 133 pounds, because they said for £3.5 if I didn't need all the money they would exchange them back for the same rate when I get back.
In 2 weeks I went back with the whole amount (I just used my VISA card because my bank gave me a better rate), and they said I have to pay the £3.50 for the Buy Back Guarantee again. When I said that I am pretty sure I won't want to change the pounds back to dollars, they said they charge this for all exchanges?!?!?!??? Conclusion, I won't recommend them to anyone.
