Well.. at the end, you indeed leave that money to the banks...

We (Paragliding World Cup again, sorry) also had to deal currency exchange
and it was way cheaper to have separate accounts for the main currencies
used. We had for example an EUR and USD account (in french bank, the
association is located in France).

We could also consider using in priority the currency that causes less
exchanges. I doubt GBP is the best one ;)
