Just got 1.475 $ t the £

I phoned round a few places for currency quotes yesterday and was offered 1.42 from the post office.

After a few requests to match Crown Currency (1.5045) First Choice holiday hypermarket here in Wigan gave me 1.475.

I was a little worried about using CC so i took there offer. Was i right to do this?

I;ve never had a prob wither, but you may need to stay in your comfort zone.

My comfort zone is not at 5p out in the exchange rate though- Friday it was 1.5233.

What's a few pence on each pound, nothing really.

That's a pretty good rate.

Just a sleeve of gold balls less at Southern Dunes!!!

When do you go?

There isn't a massive difference between 1.5045 1.475 PLUS you've got your $$$$'s in your hand. Your only risk is the Pound doesn't improve - as it's predicted to do by Summer.

I always find Crown Currency to give a slightly better rate and therefore use them.
