Before I go ahead and exchange all my travel money, I was wondering whether RMG employees got anything like preferential rates on currency?
I worked for the Post Office for 15 years and we
never got preferential rates on foreign currency. The only things we got were fee-free Sterling
traveller's cheques and 15% or 25% off travel insurance. These offers were extended to Royal Mail staff until RM and the PO formerly split: apparently these employee benefits became liable for tax when we stopped being the same company. So we stopped getting free Redirections, Keepsafe & stamps at Christmas and you stopped getting all the reductions on PO products.
It might be worth checking whatever employee benefits package you have now for a forex provider, also CWU / Unite and Benenden.
