Holiday destinations with best exchange rates for UK travellers

Best holiday exchange rate for UK travellers

The pound has dropped like a little stone, just at the height of holiday season, affecting your Euro and Dollar exchange rates. But do not fear, as there are some places where the pound is still holding its own against the local currency.

So, if you haven’t yet booked anywhere to go on hols, here are the popular destinations where your money will go further than last year*:

Argentina:

The Argentine economy is often subject to huge currency fluctuations. For every £500 you exchange, you could get up to an extra £174 worth of Argentine pesos.

Turkey:

The Turkish lira has fallen by 45% this year, which has had a knock-on effect on other currencies. For British holidaymakers, it means that for every £500 exchanged , you could get up to an extra £171 worth of lira.

Brazil:

Whether you’re partying in Rio, or heading into the rainforest. For every £500 you exchange, you could get up to an extra £78 worth of Brazilian real.

New Zealand:

New Zealand is a pretty expensive destination, but this year you’ll get more for your money. For every £500 you exchange, you could get up to an extra £40 worth of New Zealand dollars.

Australia:

Brits travelling to Australia in recent years have found the high prices  hard to swallow (12th highest cost of living in the world). So this should soften the blow a little. For every £500 you exchange, you could get up to an extra £23 worth of Australian dollars.
