Saw this on the BBC news this morning, they say get ready for a rebound in the strength of the euro, warns Holly Cook, of the investment website Morningstar. She tells Today that "all the talk in the market is of a violent rebound because the euro has fallen so fast. Currency markets tend to overshoot".

Check out 'Transferwise'. Used them several times, very efficient service with very competitive rates.

I just missed the recent peak of the exchange rate, as looks to be slipping back now, and likely to fall further as we move towards the UK election. But managed to secure 1.366 from Thomas Cook the other day.

Hi everyone

Can anyone advise me what the maximum amount is that you can withdraw from "the hole in the wall"? In euro that is.
Or are the various banks different??

Thanks

How much does it cost to hire a "JCB" in PP??

Normally £500 per day, but only £300 per withdrawal!
