PAWN SUPREMACY; Get better holiday currency rates from brokers & loan firms; EXCLUSIVE.

Byline: NADA FARHOUD Consumer Features Editor

PAWNBROKERS and pay-day lenders offer better exchange rates than the big banks.

A Mirror probe found PS500 would get you 531.55 euros at Barclays, while pawnbroker Cash Generator would give 22.30 euros more.

For trips to the US the difference between the two was $21.35.

Our investigation found five pay-day lenders, such as The Money Shop, or pawnbrokers with better rates than Santander, HSBC, NatWest, RBS and Barclays.

Emma Grimster, of TravelSupermarket, said: "Shop around for the best deal on holiday money. Don't rely on your bank to offer you the best rate." nada.farhoud@trinitymirror.com
