If you are going to Europe this summer from the United Kingdom you can take advantage of the euro troubles. Although this is not good news for our neighbouring countries, you will find that your pound will stretch much further in Europe.
The pound is now at a three-and-a-half year high against the euro, and is up against most other European currencies over the past year. And the good news is that it’s making going on holiday much cheaper.
Some experts believe it will get even stronger in the coming weeks, which would mean it is better to wait if you don’t need the cash instantly. However, no-one knows with any certainty what will happen as no-one has a crystal ball.
If you are hiring a motorhome from Motorhomes Direct then you can pay your deposit of £99 now to secure your booking and your balance later and then take off to Europe. DFDS Seaways are offering a £29 sailing from Dover to either Dunkirk or Calais. This is for a low profile motorhome, taller motorhomes will cost a little more, but not much more. Once you are in France you will find that you can change your pounds into euros at a much better rate than we have been used to.
So where do you fancy going? France, Italy and Spain or always popular countries and are very motorhome friendly, so that is probably a good start.
