I have been watching crown for the last few months, having finally spent all my 2/1 and 1.8/1 dollars.

In the last few months, when the pound moved up, you could get a good rate for a few months out, but then rates actually fell back again when looking at long term dates. I got 1.52 for may 27, but september was a worse price at the time. Now their farthest date is their best price again, so I am thinking they are betting on a gradual rise instead of a rise and fall.

M&S rate was 1.4451 today. The Post Office was round about the same.

I saw that Crown Currency was doing a good rate for late Autumn into next year. Still unsure if I'll be going to Orlando next year. Maybe making do with a visit to Disneyland Paris instead.

But hey New York here we come in 20 days!
