Avoid these Exchange Places

What happens in Benidorm happens here

Avoid these Exchange Places

Avoid these Exchange Places

The places below will always advertise a rate slightly higher than everyone else s.

Do not be fooled you will only get the higher rate if you are changing over a large amount of money normally in the region of 2,000€, but they don´t tell you that until it is too late, and their normal rate is actually lower than it should be.  This is quite clearly stated, but people still fall for it.

Always read the small print before signing anything, once you have signed there is no going back.

Between the hotels Sol Pelicanos and Flash

Next to Alhambra Restaurant (used to be Dino’s)  opposite the Wine Barrel

There is also another place to avoid, which is next to the Benidorm Centre Hotel, on Calle Gerona, towards the Old Town on the Avenida del Doctor Orts Llorca.

How are they allowed to get away with it? After conning me he could then speak near perfect English and informed me that there’s no way l would come back to Spain for €112.50 ?????

Also the one opposite Dove Park in the Old Town, advertises good rate but gives you much less. Has another hidden board at back of shop, then claims it`s clear what the rate is.

We went to one exchange shop, can’t remember where it was, guy was on phone and not answering our question on how much we would get back. Once we realised the ‘higher’ rate was for changing £2000 we grabbed our money back and left, quickly! He wasn’t amused. We stuck to exchange shops we trust after that!!!! Ps he offered us 0.97 we got 1.11 elsewhere!!!!

I got done one year with these, I still can’t believe they are still allowed to stay open , I know legally what they do is not wrong but just un ethical

That happened to us when the Pesatas first changed to Euros.
My husband handed over £50 fortunately and didn’t see the very small print saying the rate displayed was for changing larger sums.
He demanded his money back and when they refused he said he would stand there all day warning people.
After half and hour and speaking to potential customers his £50 was flung back at him!.
