i have an app on my phone that is giving exchange rates as 77.555 thought that sounded very high as on the street last year it was around the 72 mark so just wondered what the actual street vendors was giving at the moment
Have found this one to be very accurate when compared to bank statements from using a Nationwide debit card in cash points....
It reflected what we were actually getting on a daily basis rather than needing to adjust for "street prices", which, many years ago were very good but nowadays are not so. Also with "street exchanges you are vulnerable to being given a massive wodge of smaller denomination notes with a lot missing, on the basis that you will not stand and count them all. Even if you do, the proprietor will simply apologise profusely and hand over the difference. This popular scam has been going on for at least 20 years and quickly turns a good exchange rate into a terrible one.
So you quote your experiences, in south Goa I presume, and I quote mine (and many others) in Calangute and Mapusa, in the north...........so where is the need for the "bullshit" post?
