Definately buy over there - You always get the best rates in Spain.. Find the local money changer.

If you have a credit card use that, it gives a FAR better exchange rate.
Try to avoid travellers cheques, you pay for the service.

Sorry, I worded that wrong - you should use your credit card for buying goods, NOT for changing money.
The best rates are definately given by the local money changers, shop around, there are plenty in Benalmadina.
Its a beautifull place by the way.

surely using a credit card like visa/mastercard you will be paying interest immeadiatly cos you actually drawing money not paying for goods

I goto benidorm to visit the old man four five times a year and usually always get my euros over there. But in february the bludy exchange rate was the same as we were getting here so think things are starting to change. Basically same as curly said.

Although heading over on the 21st this month still get my cash changed over there.

Get your euros here at either M&S or the post office as neither charge any fees.
