Exchange rates always drop as a general election approaches due to uncertainty in the market so might be an idea to buy currency now if you can afford to if travelling in March, April or May.

There must have been some good financial news, just checked and the interbank rate is 136.63 euros to the pound. A good time to get your holiday spends, shop around though for the best tourist rates.

Talking to a German economist recently and he believes the euro will lose 3 cents a month to Sterling during the monthly quantitive easing. As this continues till September 2015 you can see why many are predicting rates of 1.5 to 1.55 by the end of the summer.

Baydon hill morning email offering 1.4136 at 09:55 AM:


checked online at 10:04 AM and the rate was 1.4203



(We use them with my business to send euro payments to companies in Europe as the rates are good and there are no fees for us to send money )

Wish I had the money to buy a place now instead of waiting! I make it around 25% more euros for your money, thats a hell of a lot against a property purchase!

Its the rate you get if using a debit card at cash machines. I never take any euros just draw it out when i get there. Of course my debit card (santander zero) lets me do it for free.
