Default Panicking now!!

We have booked our April accommodation on line with a Mallorcan agent and are paying in euros. Naturally, I've been watching the rate daily and was relieved to see it improve over the last few weeks - now that I have to pay the balance later this week, and it's getting worse by the day!!

Now, I don't know whether to pay early in case it gets worse, or to hang on and hope things improve soon! At one stage our holiday was going to cost 140 more than originally - and at the moment it's 100more - and I am panicking!!

Just had to get that off my chest!

Rosie

Your guess is a good as anyones. We are working our costs on 1 Euro = 1 Pound and it's frightening the difference over the past few months. However, we'd rather spend more on our holidays and cut back in other areas.

Hi Rosie, you shouldn't worry over things we cant control, as Tonsyl says it looks like we may hit parity soon, but what can we do, one thing is to make sure you have a great time when you go and enjoy every minute of it which I hope you do .

Hi all

I know that by the time we get there and after the first cold B&C on the terrace of the villa - I will have forgotten all about the euro and the panic - just gotta get over the paying bit!!
