It’s been four months since my last blog post on the Euro Exchange Rate when back in December 2015 I reported on the Euro Exchange Rate Over The Last Year. In 2015 the Euro Exchange Rate was very good for British consumers looking to take a holiday to Europe especially during the summer months last year.
However, what with all the Brexit news and uncertainty over the EU Referendum this has certainly created a big impact on the Sterling Euro Exchange Rate. Since December 2015 and the turn of the year the Sterling Euro Exchange Rate has gradually declined over fears that the UK will vote to come out of Europe.
The Brexit Impact on the Sterling Euro Exchange Rate since December 2015
How Much Worse Off Are British Consumers Compared With Last Year
Now if you are looking to take a holiday in Europe this year and you are looking to Buy some Euros for your holiday then timing could be everything when it comes to getting the best Sterling Euro Exchange Rate for your Travel Money requirements.
Last summer in 2015 the Euro Exchange Rate hit 1.4217 which was the highest in the year and currently in the above Sterling Euro Exchange infographic from 2016 the Euro Rate has dropped down to 1.2443 which is currently the lowest it has been this year and what the Euro Rate will do between now and the 23rd June 2016 is quite difficult to predict.
If you were taking £1000 then you would have received 1421.70 Euros last summer, however, now you would only get in return 1244.30 Euros which is a difference of 177.40 Euros which equates to roughly £145.00 worth of Euro Travel Money.
Brexit Poll Tracker from the Financial Times
If you are interested in tracking the Brexit Polls then the Financial Times have this great web page showing the latest Brexit Poll results and the latest Brexit news. At present it shows that 43% of people are going to vote to stay in the EU versus 42% of people looking to vote to leave the EU which leaves the rest as undecided voters.
However, as we get closer to the voting deadline date of the 23rd June 2016 I am wondering how many people are going to be interested in voting what with the UEFA 2016 European Football Championships starting on the 10th June 2016 and most people starting to think about their school summer holidays around this time.
