As the days edge closer to holiday time, the Brexit roulette wheel is still spinning and keeping the exchange rate low

It's all a bit chaotic as far as exchanging is concerned but one thing for sure there does not seem to be a short term solution with all the squabbles continuing

Do we go in now and exchange at around 1.14/15 or will it get higher?

Anybody got a clue?

If anybody had a clue we wouldn't be in this situation! Uncertainty is the driving force. That's pretty certain to continue into June at least. So I think it's a matter of when people are going.

The pound dropped because of nil progress in the Lab/Con talks. There doesn't seem much chance of that changing, and when Mrs May tries to get her deal through parliament again in June she'll still be hostage to the right-wing of her party and the DUP, so I'm not rushing down the betting shop to stick any money on it passing.

This is how Jimbo, use a Santander debit card at any Santander ATM in Spanish territory and you will get the best rate.
Remember, you didn't believe me once before and it cost you 20 euros. 200€ ÷ £171.63 = 1.1652

I didn't say you were wrong, George. I didn't quite get how they could sell at a better rate than the current one, unless they bought a load of cash at a much higher rate.

Always get my euros for Corfu when in Tenerife Jim, works out a lot better than buying at home.

Very handy if you happen to be going to Tenerife, but I fear the flight costs would spoil my rate rather a lot!

Meanwhile, the pound continues to sink. TravelFX is 1.1262 as I write. Tory power-struggles are plainly not helping.
