Changing (Irish) Pounds to Euros in Paris

Jump to last reply

We typically rely mostly on credit cards when we travel, but we'll be coming to Paris after working in Northern Ireland and will have been paid in Irish pounds. (FYI, although they have the same value as the British pounds you'd find in England, they are a different currency.) We're thinking we might as well convert our pounds to Euros and use them up in France.

It seems that so many currency exchanges are rip-offs. Any suggestions for where we might get a decent exchange rate in Paris? I don't know if any banks would provide this service.

FYI, I don't think exchanging our money in N. Ireland will be an option because I'll get paid on a Sunday when the banks are closed--and then will head to the airport, where the currency exchanges seem to be the worst.

Merci.
