Euros at 3.5 year high: 1.214 @ Travelex

Found 12th May 2012
Euros are at a three and a half year high of 1.214 on the Travelex website. May be useful for anyone near a travelex and travelling to the Euro zone.

They deliver but charge credit card fees on delivery.

May also be worth checking local foreign exchanges as they all seem quite high.

1.238 at Ice, Best foreign exchange and Moneycorp.

Whilst the eurozone is still in such a pickle I only see the rate improving over next 7-10 days at least.

I think you always get stuffed when you sell currency back because the rates for buy and sell are so far apart. It should be better for you selling back than it was last week. If you can afford, it's probably better to hang on and use for next holiday. You get nothng much in interest if you convert back to £ and put in the bank.

Guys...the rate getting higher means you get less GBP for your Euros when you sell them back. Sherbolton you should just stick with what you got as you will get less than you paid last month.
Unless you think that the rate will go up further and also goes up enough to cover the difference between buy and sell and the commissions you usually have to pay.
And as greece will have another vote in a few weeks time with anti austerity parties most likely the winners...that could easily happen...anyone got some old Drachmes at home?

Euros aren't getting higher, the pound is.
