I went to Ireland for a wedding over the weekend, and rather than getting some Euros from a travel agent or elsewhere before I left, I used the lazy option and simply withdrew money from the ATMs over in Ireland.
I ended up withdrawing around 100 Euros more than I could spend (I was expecting to have to pay more for taxis and for drinks at the wedding than I ended up spending), so have returned to Blighty with them burning a hole in my wallet.
So the question is, what should I do with this leftover currency?
Should I keep it for my next trip to Europe, and risk misplacing somewhere around the house, never to find it again? Or should I try to exchange it on the high street for some rediculously poor exchange rate?
If you’ve got any tips or any cunning ideas, let me know your ideas in the comments below. Ideally I’d like to get the money back, as it must be worth £80, so I’d rather have that in my bank rather than sitting around.
