Page 32 says Money & documents £750 but £300 limit for cash. Passports £400.

Are you looking online or at your own document? I wonder if they have changed amounts for new policies, I don't have mine here to check.

I agree with this - much prefer using cards either CC or room key. I hate ending up with a purse full of change! Only cash we use is for tolls or an occasional item.

Hi its on the document,Definatly states that its covered for the £750 in the cash section..

So maybe it is for new policys we only got ours last month
Either way luckily we are covered for the amount we take by the forces which is why we have always felt safe taking cash.
Took over £2000 in cash on every holiday as Dh has been in the RAF 10years and always takes out the same cover for personal items when travelling including the cash.

Can totally see why some dont like taking much cash with them i just love the feel,smell and joy when i see it We also make sure to have funds on our Visa cards too though incase of emergencys

I know it's hard to tell but does anyone think it's likely for the rate to go back up again? I've been keeping an eye on it and it has dropped quite a bit this week

Doesnt look good at the moment.

Overall "expert" opinions are that it will continue to dip but as Wayne says who really knows. Wish I'd bought at 1.64 though a few weeks back
