Default Exchange rate ???

Hi,

Anyone know (sparky) what the going rate is in the Port.

Best I can find in the UK is around 1.17 euro to the pound.

should I change at home or over in PP.

If I were going anytime soon, I would buy now as the rate is on the slide, down 4 cents since the high of last week. My guess is if you wait until you arrive, it could be lower.

That didn't really answer my question.

Does anyone currently in PP know what the local exchange rate is ?

Thanks, S.

Hi siren - you cannot bank on the exchange rate at any one time - even from minute to minute. Banks set their rates for the day but the rates are so volatile at the moment you do not know where you are. I am afraid it is a case of 'suck it and see'!

Exchange rate back up to 1.16 at M&S, Visa card exchange rate still at 1.20, not too bad I suppose!
