Currency for Ukraine ????
Where is the best place to get some currency for the Ukraine I have struggled to find it in the UK so im guessing from a cash point when I arrive can anyone confirm that this is best or not ...

We got our currency OK at the border - UK banks don't trade in Ukraine currency so don't bring any back ! (that's also why you can't buy them before you go)

thanks for that is it best to change euros or just use the cash point

ATM's worked fine for me, but there have always been lots of rumors about scams, skimming, hidden cameras, etc. Changing euros or dollars is no problem at all, but be sure to change back before leaving.

We changed our excess Russian roubles - we were travelling west back to the UK but if you are coming in from Eurozone the Euro will work just as well.

Thomsons, is where i've ordered mine from. Only enough to get me in to the country. I don't like to rock up at a border with no currency at all.

Post office-no
Thomas cook- no
Natwest- no

Thomsons (travel agent) yes.
