IF YOU are planning a trip to Europe or America this summer, now
could be the best time in years to buy your travel money to make
the most of your holiday lolly.
Continuing concerns over debts in Spain, a lack of government in
Greece and a new government in France that wants to renegotiate the
existing fiscal agreements have had a detrimental effect on the
euro. Bad news for them, but great news for you.
As it happens, now is the best time in the last three and a half
years to buy your travel money, as the pound on May 11 was worth as
much as €1.25 - although it has started to fall back again
You can get a great deal if you are heading across the pond too,
but you will need to be quick. This week the US dollar almost hit
US$1.62 to the pound, a big surprise given the US economy is
growing and ours is currently in recession. But in the last couple
of days, the rate has started to fall again, and was just under
US$1.61 at the end of the week.
So, time is of the essence if you want to get the most from your
holiday cash, and you can order your euros, US dollars - or anyone
of another 50 currencies - online with us through the DIVA Online
Travel Money Service.
Your first transaction is free, and you will never pay
commission on your currency exchange - it is just not what we do.
If you exchange more than £500, then you will also get the money
delivered free to your door the next day.
So check out the DIVA Online Travel Money
Service, provided by Moneycorp, to get the best of your holiday
cash this summer.
