    The rate seems to be going up to 1.8 again so Im thinking of getting some, where do you get your dollars from? do you get travellers checks and if so small notes or large or a mixture

    I either mine from M&S or from Crown Currency. I take a mixture of notes, and TC's only a few of the large ones but mainly $20's and $10's

    Crown Currency looks quite good.

    You can order in advance and fix the rate they will give you

    Currently offering $1.90 Oct 2009
