The Zloty was 're-denominated' in 1995 and 4 zeros were removed from it, making 10,000 Zlotys equal to 1. This is more than just an interesting bit of trivia. If you are changing money in Poland you do not want to accept old Zloty notes as they are effectively worthless! Based upon the orders placed between 1st of August and 31st October 2013 the typical traveller took about £590 (2,880 PLN) of currency with them in cash. Since then that value has increased to £712 (PLN3,661.10, as of Sunday 11th of December 2016) based upon data from 1st of July to 30th of September 2016.
If you are planning on changing currency when you are in Poland, banks and local currency exchange offices (known as Kantors) will refuse to change notes that are marked or torn. This applies even to notes that have been written on, which is not uncommon here in the UK.
Poland is in the midst of adopting the Euro: a process that is on hold at present due to the Eurozone crisis. If you return from Poland with left over currency you should sell it back using a currency buy-back service as soon as possible.
British passport holders do not need a visa to enter Poland and can stay for up to three months. If you plan on staying for longer than three months or would like to apply for a permit to work in Poland you will need to contact the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in London before you travel.
Over the past week the Polish Zloty has dropped by 2.09% from last Monday's rate of 5.252 to today's rate of 5.1420 which means £750 will buy you zł82.50 less now than it would have a week ago. During this period the best rate we recorded was 5.252 on Monday and the worst rate was 5.14 on Thursday.
The 90 day outlook has seen the Polish Zloty rate increase by 1.68% from 5.057 on 13th September 2016 to 5.1420 today. Based on these figures, £750 will buy you zł63.75 more today than it would have three months ago. We recorded a high rate of 5.318 on 4th December 2016 and a low rate of 4.673 on 11th October 2016.
