The ECB's sale of bonds is due to go on into 2016, it started this week which explains why the rate is going bonkers. It could well continue but it is bad for us as a country - it makes imports cheap and exporters struggle. As a result the Bank of England might fight back. The only people happy, apart from British holiday makers are the German car and train makers etc, who can export to their heart's content because of the euro's depressed value.
Bring back the Deutchmark!

Keep an eye on the rate as the polls start coming in with the May election. Maybe worth having a bit at the current rate

I've just ordered a Halifax Clarity Card - many thanks!This is a very useful link showing the best exchange rates and the Halifax Clarity card rate. http://travelmoney.moneysavingexpert.com/holiday-money/euros/delivery/weeks/700-pounds-worth#results
There is no fee using the Halifax Clarity card and you get a much higher exchange rate than buying cashwhy would you use a card and pay a fee for each transaction?
We just buy euros and now they are at such a good price it`s worth buying more than you need and keeping them for next time.
