Buy GBP

I need to buy some sterling but every bank and money changer I've been to either says a simple no, only $, or has a blank look on their face.  There must be somewhere here that sells one of the worlds major currencies, isn't there?

Do you have a bank account here? I would start by asking the manager at your bank. Banks are the most likely source for foreign currencies here in the Philippines.

I use my gf account, we haven't asked at her branch yet but at others it's $ only.  The first place I asked at I said i wanted to buy sterling, that drew a blank look from the girl until I changed it to GBP.

You might wish to try the money changer in Robinson's Mall on the circle.

Is that the Robinsons Galleria near the docks?

No, the original one on Osmena circle, I believe the phone number is 255 8992 and there is also one in Cybergate Mall also on the circle.

It's been a long day, I've just twigged what you mean by circle!  I rarely get to the side of town so I don't know it at all, way too classy for this Bognor boy!

The owner Loy is/was married to a foreigner (as long as nothing has changed), so if they say no, see if you can get to talk to her.
