So I'm aware of the terrible exchange rate for the US dollar right now. Anyone have advice as to where is the best place to exchange $$? Once I'm over there I'll be paid in pounds but I'll need some money to start me off. Should I wait till I'm at the airport in London? Banks in the US? AMEX?
Also on a different note.--If I want to send money back to the US (per diem/extra cash I don't want to carry). Do you recommend wiring money from a bank there? Someone told me western union but that's really pricey isn't it? Thanks as usual everyone!!
