Suggest you visit moneysavingexpert.com and check out the best rates in the UK and buy before you leave. Cannot imagine that you would do any better trying to get a better rate in Stoupa.
Whatever you do never change your money at the airport!

There was a time when you could almost guarantee to get a better rate in Stoupa than in UK but those days are gone. I have to disagree about never changing money at the airport though, Moneycorp, if ordered in advance, can be competitive and often feature in the MSE travelmoney max list, plus, unless you're near a Bureau De Change, it saves a lot of travelling time to save a few quid. However you must order in advance, costs nothing.

I usually find ICE (International Currency Exchange) or Travel FX give the best rates online. Much better than high street and delivered free to your door. (Amounts over £500) About £8 for a guaranteed Saturday delivery if you are working full time. Very reliable.

Just checked the difference for £1000 worth of Euros for delivery (Travel FX) or pre-booked collection from Moneycorp at the airport and the difference is just over €3. So, for the price of a beer avoid the risk of a provider going bust with your money. Pre-ordered, Airport collection need not be a bad option. ;)
