    Im not sure Simon, but I did hear one of the banks or exchange services had a no charge fee at the moment, see if I can remember who it was

    Seems they are doing 0% commission, I may have it wrong.

    Simon just spoke with a friend who does travel for a living, he said most places dont charge nowadays, its the rate that you have to watch out for. He was just saying thats how they catch you with the 0% as their exchange rate is not great.
