    Dont think we make much to export now, and if I believed all I read the Europeans have no money to buy anything. So am gona be selfish and hope it gets back up to 1.60.
    Something tells me the powers that be wont allow that though.

    Have been watching the price of last minute holls over the last few days and there was an all inclusive for 7 days in Spain offered at £130.............YES £130. I have been known to run a bar bill up for more than that over the weekend.
    Just wondering how much the hotel gets out of that.

    New motorhome prices should fall then!:thumb:

    European vans will get cheaper and so will the British ones with all the European bits they use. After all, how much of your Fiat-based, Truma-heated, Seitz windowed, Thetford toileted and refrigerated British-built van is British made?

    I doubt those prices will fall to the level that they were when the Euro was at its weekest in the past though....................:Angry:

    Well if it all goes t*ts up we will be covered money wise , through the tour company so that s not the worry. Though we would be bitterly dissapointed.:Sad:

    As for not go to Greece , Never.

    We love the place, the people , the food mmmmmm , the scenery in fact everything except the mozzies.
    And ive even beaten that with my broad spectrum vitamin B complex.:thumb:

    Infact we got married there ( Aghia Gallini ) 18 years ago 19th May. :smalllove:

    As has been said that was 4 years ago so they will not go down to that level.

    When we first went to Spain in 2005 a Euro costed us around 50p and MH were a LOT cheaper but with the boom in ownership those prices are going through the roof, nowt to do with the Euro. :cry:

    I think that's right We bought ours new in 2008 for £47k . same model is closer to £70k now.

    Have I been lucky for once?

    I have taken so many property market hits that I doubt it:Doh::cry:

    I use the new Visa Select credit card from Nationwide and pay as much as possible with that. I also take sterling cash and change into local currency for small items. You get the best rate and NO commission charges. As a bonus you get an interest free loan as long as you pay the bill in full on time.
    Strangely the only place I had difficulty changing sterling for euros was Spain. I would have thought they would be happy to take strong currency.:RollEyes:

    gone from 1.20 to 1.24 which is up in my books. I don't hold with the financial experts view that this is a downward movement. We are getting more Euro's so it is going up:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
