Easy fix. A flight to Rome would be less than $1500 so better value if you start planning another trip.Well I decided to change some accommodation bookings in Rome for a trip this coming May. So I cancelled the original booking at no charge and re-booked a nicer place on Expedia which was a decent deal considering the quality hotel. Non-refundable booking. Only problem was, I booked it for May 2019.
So I am anxiously waiting a reply to have it changed to 2018 or $1500 could be wasted. I should never book anything at 10PM.
It sure was! I got caught up in the the middle of it. November 2016. They gave about 12 hours notice before declaring all 100 and 500 rupee notes to be non-legal tender. These were the most commonly used notes for counterfeit and underworld funding. I'd just taken out a bunch of said currency the day prior! They started an exchange for new valid notes (complete with ensuring that you were declaring an income for taxation purposes) a couple of days later.Wasn't it India a couple of years ago said the large notes were no longer valid to help reduce the black market
Luckily, I was able to convince one of my staff to take my notes and and they gave me some other, higher denominations of good tenderI couldn't make it back to India to convert mine before the deadlines... lost AU$500-600 worth :'(
Only need a 'mildly inconvenienced' button for my case - but a double dislike for daft009 is needed, though! Ouch!We do need a dislike button for those previous two posts
The UK have changed their 5 and 10 pound notes to new ones and they said after a certain date the old ones would no longer be valid. Some banks will take them but if not you have to post them to the Bank of England or go and visit them

What really pisses me off is that I got these from Travelex in Feb but they didn't warn me. They expired March 1st.
