There is a small kiosk right opposite the jewellers in Alvor village next door to the phone shop. It is very helpful to all and has a good rate of exchange.
This is an excellent place to change your money as they charge a straight 5 euros per transaction no matter how much money you are changing, whereas the bank will charge a higher rate the more you change.
If this kiosk is closed, there is also another place, right up the other end of the street (go right if facing the kiosk) called Johns Shop. They charge a slightly higher rate than the kiosk, but still much cheaper than the bank.
