How disgusting, 1.87 !!

For anyone London based

www.thomasexchangeglobal.co.uk

For those that are not,

I think www.travelex.co.uk do a delivery service.

If not M&S are normally better than the high st and post office.

Amex offices, sometimes do a rate match, if you wanna try, get the rate from thomas global and then see how close Amex will come.

Firstly it used to be easy to simply wire money to the cage of the casino you were staying at and than withdrawing it; this is no longer the case.
If you wire money to a casino cage they will not let you take this out in cash, only in chips for use in the casino. I think you may be able to take out 20% in cash, but no more than that. This is understandable as casinos don't want to be used as banks.

The simplest way is to take cash and having done this a few times I can firstly advise you to be 100% open about why you are taking the money in and also to pre-fill in the following US Customs declaration form before you go because this will save you a lot of time at Customs as they can never find the correct form.

When you get to wherever you are staying, you can deposit the money in cash and withdraw in cash whenever you like. Strangely they are more concerned about wires now than cash (don't ask me why?).

This is the form you need after you have ticked the 'more than 10K' box on the standard Customs form.

Hope you have to declare more when you are leaving and good luck.
