London, UK (PRWEB UK) 29 May 2015
With summer fast-approaching, UK news outlet ‘Express’ releases a comparison of Pound-to-Euro exchange rates currently being offered by providers to British travellers preparing for vacation. Of the eight currency specialists included in the evaluation, Thomas Exchange Global tops the chart for most competitive rate at 1.37, which equates to 274 Euros for the price of 200 British Pounds.
The weakened Euro in conjunction with the strengthening of the British Pound has made summer holidays in Euro-based countries cheaper than they’ve been in years, spurring an increase in tourism in those areas. An article published by Express news on May 20th reported that a British traveller will receive over 100 more Euro for each 500 British Pounds worth of travel money in comparison to last year.
“The pound has surged in recent weeks, which is great news for British holidaymakers this summer," Express reported. Currency specialist Thomas Exchange Global responded to the increased demand by offering the most competitive exchange rates for the Euro.
“This is welcome news for millions of tourists planning to holiday. We are experiencing an unprecedented demand just prior to the summer holiday season and in turn will offer the best exchange rates for the Euro,” stated Trevor Samuel, Senior Manager at Thomas Exchange Global Ltd.
In the article, journalist Lana Clements recommends ordering travel money online to find the best rates and identified Thomas Exchange Global as a particular good option for London-based travellers. She noted, “…the best rates are usually found with currency specialists, as opposed to well-known retailers. For those based in London, Thomas Exchange Global is particularly competitive and has a number of branches across the city…”
The Express article further suggests travellers should avoid using cards while abroad, as most card transactions charge an international fee ranging from 2 to 3 percent.
In addition to the Euro, Thomas Exchange Global offers very competitive rates for over 120 currencies, some of which are difficult to find in London. Among the growing demand of European currencies it offers are the Bulgarian Lev and Croatian Kuna.
“Bulgaria is one of the cheapest holiday destinations in Europe, while musical festivals and shallow beaches attract many British travellers to Croatia,” commented Trevor. “As such, we are geared up to offer very competitive rates for these currencies closely associated with the fluctuation of Euro.”
Thomas Exchange Global advises customers to buy their travel money well in advance when the rates are favourable to evade facing worse off rates commonly offered at airports–as well as avoid paying additional charges on bank cards and prepaid travel cards.
