There, you need to get 1000 Pounds ( £) at a London bank to pay your hotel. In this case you would pay 1.245 * 1000 = 1,245.423 US Dollars (\$). But, in practice, you will pay more (or perhaps much more) to get the same amount of your foreign currency due to the margin for the money conversion services costs like: commissions, credit card surcharges, ATM fees and other expenses.
