      I don't think they charge for any Cashouts, or at least they havn't for me.

      The exchange rate can make a big difference though, check that on your Cashout History.

      Which method did you use out of interest?

      This.

      I've lost ~ €10 because of the exchange rate in the last week when I withdrew. Apparently, 888 use a different rate to that of the one on our homepage.

      You have the option of withdrawing your funds as $ and then the bank will convert them and as far as I'm aware you will get a better exchange rate this way.

      Best regards,
      Gary

      when depositing they use €0.87 = $1 I think.
      But when cashing out it'll be worse probably.

      I've cashed out dozens of times from 888 and have never been charged for it.

      I've been depositing form and cashing out to moneybookers and in the process lost a lot of money because of the exchange rates (a deposit of 100usd and a withdrawal of a 100 would cost me a total of like 5-9 usd). So, imo, if you lost 20/800 for the exchange, you got off easy :D

      I thought someone wrote somewhere that u have to put moneybookers in USD$ as well. And then let the bank handle the exchange rate.

      Yes, I would agree here for sure. The banks give better exchange rates than 888. Lesson learned :)

      Moneybookers exchange it for you also. So if you withdraw in USD when it hits your account it will be in EUR.
