Hi there..when you place your order they do not actually get in touch afterwards....however...if you order your exchange before 12pm you will get it by the next day as long as it's a working day (not sat or sun)...At the check out you are given several choices for delivery...They are super quick and the package has to be signed for AND it's free p&p....I've dealt with them for years and in my opinion give the best possible rate at the time...Just remember to choose how you want your money..such as large small or mixed denomination.. Cheers...hope this helps..

Your bank or Building society will exchange it back at the rate on the day you exchange the cheque.

Unsure. Only used Currency Club to exchange GBP to Euros. I have used a company called TRANSERWISE recently to send money overseas. They are far cheap to use than banks. They get good reviews and my transactions were incident free and the company kept me informed throughout the transaction.

Log on to the site and create a new account (this is very simple and the website guides you through it). You can then order your chosen currency and pay by debit card. Your currency will be delivered the following working day by Royal Mail special delivery. All very simple and secure. I have used The Currency Club many times and always had excellent service and the best rates.

I have just received £2000 in Euros, £1000 of which are in 100 Euro notes. My bank and exchange shops local to me will not change them (and why should they). Where can I exchange these large notes? I will have to carry my passport around with me on holiday to be in with a chance of changing them in Spain. My holiday is ruined before it has started.

I cannot see how your holiday is ruined. Money is money. I've not had problems with 100 euro notes. Either ask your hotel to change them as the need arises, or go to the local bank in Spain with your passport and they will change them. Using them in restaurants to pay for a meal usually works too. Taxis and small shops probably don't have the change to give you. Not a big deal. Enjoy your holiday!

Hi neiland jean, I don't think you will have any problem spending your 100 euro notes in Spain. Just don't try and buy small items with them. Save them for larger purchases like meals, petrol etc. If you really need to change them, take them in to a bank in Spain who will be happy to change them for smaller notes. Have a great holiday !

Further to other answers I would also say you won't have any problems paying abroad for anything (unless very small items) it would be like paying for a coke with a £50 note so spend it on higher priced goods. If you really don't want to take them, ask the Post Office they are usually pretty good at changing the higher notes. Have a good holiday cokdeli

I also have had no problem with the large notes , I either used them for paying for meals , and I went to the bank and changed them up , certainly will not ruin your holiday ,as for carrying all your money around , it would be a lot safer to hire a saftey deposit box

Did you specifically ask for small notes or a variety? I have never had this issue with The Currency Club I have to say, however I also agree with the answers below, you will have no problem exchanging them in Spain.

Good question...I had a similar problem and found that the best place to exchange or spend the larger notes was @ the "HOTEL", that I stayed in! The reason for this was that it was much easier for them to bank a 100 note than lots of smaller notes.. Just for the record I worked in banking for 25 years and NO bank had an issue with changing currency if asked? In fact using their currency shouldn't be a problem. You could even try a "foreign exchange" shop as well which shouldn't charge you for swapping notes, so please ask either way the only delay is normally queing up!

We tried to use them in rural France and nobody would take them. I am pretty sure that as others have said here that that more tourist friendly places in Spain will be fine

Hi neilandjean, We have just returned from France and had no problems using 100 Euro notes, obviously not at the bar for a coffee but at the supermarkets, hotels and restaurants we were able to use them. In Spain just take them with your ID to the bank or Post and they will change them - no problems. So go on your holidays and enjoy yourselves.

I have never had any problems changing 100 euro notes in Spain, but as previously suggested, only use them for larger purchases. Maybe next time you should request small denomination notes or ask for them not to send you and 100s. The currency club are usually very helpful. Enjoy your holiday.

Apparently they process orders between 9 and 6 for delivery next day before 1. However, I wouldn't leave it to late for next day delivery as it is delivered by Royal Mail. I've never had any problems ordering at 3 in the afternoon

I ordered mine in the afternoon and they arrived the next morning, if you ordered tonight I would expect them to arrive on Thurs morning, they are delivered by Royal Mail.
Report this content pyates Written on: 25/02/2014
I would expect them within 48hours - our experience shows that it is best to allow the extra day as they are delivered by Royal Mail.

If you order them in the evening they will send them out when they open next day so you will get them the following day. If you order them this afternoon you will have them tomorrow morning. It's a great service and the best I've found!

They would arrive on Thursday by Royal Mail special delivery
Report this content bobthedieselman Written on: 25/02/2014
I did order mine before the 1pm deadline and they did arrive the following day via first class Royal Mail delivery. My Guess would be that, if you order before 1pm, then it will be certain to arrive the next day, but if you order in the evening, you might be lucky (depending upon where you live), but more likely to receive it on the second day after the order.

As others have said - next day delivery

Sorry for late reply, only just got to my e-mails, and you have probably already bought your currency, but for what it is worth, my currency was delivered next day by Royal Mail as well. So that was lunchtime next day where i live.
