    I was wondering if anyone knows if you can get currency changed while in Florida, we've changed money back before coming home but never brought over there,
    If you can buy does anyone know if I can find what the exchange rate would be?

    It would be a lot cheaper drawing out cash with your bank card than changing pounds to dollars. The rates we've seen have been a rip off. I would draw larger amounts out at a time ie not $50 dollars here and there to minimise charges. We're with Barclays and if you get cash from Bank of America it's cheaper than other branches...not sure obviously who you bank with. This is the way we did it when we lived over there.

    Good adVice above.

    I use a pre paid USD debit card which i use for cash withdrawals. I know the exchange rates in advance as its pre loaded and I also get the option to change it back commission free with the rate in which I used originally.

    Not sure this would help in this situation but might be worth a look?
