Yep, never mind, seems I'm stuck but will see if I can bung it to charity or something...my own fault, I hid it in my pumps when I was a bit tiddly one night and then couldn't find it. Oops!

Thanks for the replies, anyway

Best bet is to find someone going to India and give them a good exchange rate.

he didn't know either (obv) & was stunned

you arent supposed to take Indian Rupees in or out of India as it is a closed currency. If you do find somewhere to change them you will get a rubbish exchange rate

Hi there

I came back from a work trip to India recently with about 50 quid's worth of Rupees. The Post Office wouldn't change it back, saying it couldn't be done.

Anyone know if this is right?

Any tips/thoughts/solutions appreciated...I'm not back in India for a year, so would like to get it changed if poss!

Many thanks
