Forex 'shock' ahead
« on: Wednesday, 17 July, 2019 @ 16:42:02 »
Tourists facing travel money 'shock' this summer

Tourists could face a "shock" this summer when they travel abroad according to foreign currency experts.

Those that buy euros at the airport can expect to receive around 98 euro cents for their pound. Better rates can be found by buying in advance, with the Post Office offering €1.0819.

But that's still a long way from the summer of 2015, when tourists were getting at least €1.32 for their pound.

The big fall came in 2016 after the UK voted to leave the European Union.
