Last week, amid the Brexit turmoil, Express.co.uk reported how sterling had endured its worst run against the euro since 2000.
Previously, Brexit uncertainty and the prospect of a no deal Brexit – which would see the UK leave the EU with no plans on how to proceed – has sent the pound to exchange rate plummeting.
The current turmoil, therefore, appeared to be sparking the exact same response.
Meanwhile, finance experts have issued a stark warning for Britons looking to convert their pounds to euros.
Tourists from the UK are being urged to be “savvier” over their currency dealings.
Those looking to head overseas any time in 2019 should exchange their cash now, according to CompareHolidayMoney.com, no matter when they are flying.
They cite the poor state of the UK economy as the main reason why.
Peter Rudin-Burgess from CompareHolidayMoney.com : “The UK economy is still falling behind the Eurozone which was disappointed with its growth figures of 1.2 per cent announced earlier this week.
“It would be wise for UK travellers to buy their currency sooner rather than later if this trend continues.”
