As every has said noone knows. As you have a while I would hold out. Those of us who go in the next month obviously are a bit more worried but when I went in dec 2008 it was 1.35 so 1.45 is better than that. Mo matter what am going to change £1000 the weekend or if it goes up to 1.47 will do it then

FairFx was UP from 1.45ish on Tue to 1.4615 today so that is an improvement...

I always look at the positive!

A couple of sales on from 11am this morning.
Travelex on for 2 hours, their rate has just increased from $1.4751 to $1.4825

http://www.mytravelcash.com/ on for 7 hours but looks to be only on the currency card not cash, their rate up from $1.4693 to $1.4848

I hope I have enough for this trip to use cash, something I rarely do but bought a load off a customer last year over $1.60/£1. If not I will put on credit card upto $1.5189 today, hope it rises a bit more in next 2 weeks.

Bailed and purchased £500 on Fair FX today, on one of their pre paid cards. Exchnage rate at 1.5 so happy with that.

Hopefully it'll go up a tiny bit before I change the rest

I am perfectly happy with 1.50 - I have been using that as my 'guide' for estimating for a few years now. Anything extra is a bonus. In my opinion, you got a good rate. Well done

Yeah I think so. I'd always said to myself when its at 1.5 I'll buy. I still need to change about another £1200 but Im just going to see what happens over the next few days.
