I'll be in Scotland for one day and I will need to buy ticket for the bus. I have American Visa travel credit card, american debit card, euro, and dollars. Which one is better to use to change euro/dollars into £? Thanks

    Can you define "better?" Is it in terms of price, convenience, something else? Your question is a bit broad at this point.

  • To be clear, are you asking how much and how to change the price of a single bus ticket from EUR/USD into GBP?

  • Which bus? Are you sure they don't take Euros?

  • Are you looking to minimize exchange fees? Assuming you can just use the travel card, I don't see any need to do any explicit currency exchange.

  • It's just a complete nonstarter thinking about the cash. You can't "precisely" change £4.35 - it's just a nonstarter. Simply use a card.

The cards will definitely be better than the cash.

Simply check the two cards you have, and compare the fees for the two on international transactions - you'll have your answer.

Just forget about changing cash.

And have a Whisky for us !

  • Yes, for one day, KISS and use the card...
