Best Exchange Rates Since 2008!

Best Exchange Rates

Now’s a fantastic time to bag that last minute holiday. Thanks to the best exchange rates, British holidaymakers are enjoying more spending power abroad.

Whether you want to swish off to sunny Sorrento, call in to Croatia or flaunt it in Florida, the soaring pound means your money will stretch further – so you’ve got more chances to spoil yourself or your family with shopping trips or eating out, or even with a few extra beers or cocktails!

Head off for the US and you’ll find that with the pound worth around $1.70, you can splash out on clothes, cosmetics, handbags…for a lot less than you’d expect.

Good times are here at last

The price of food and drink in many popular destinations is down considerably. Take a three course family meal in the Algarve, for example – previously €38.18 in 2013, it would cost you just €33.96 this year. Sun cream, coffee, ice cream, beach towels…across Europe and beyond, the prices this year have dropped, so why not take advantage?

With best exchange rates since the recession started in 2008, it looks like the good times are here at last – for the British holidaymaker, anyway. The favourable dollar and euro rates are expected to be around till the end of 2014, so don’t put off that holiday till next year, when you can get so much more for your money by travelling now. That way you can spend, spend, spend in the destination of your dreams!
