London,UK (PRWEB UK) 16 December 2015
According to a recent article published on November 19th by Female First, 5 million Brits are reportedly planning to travel abroad for Christmas in place of a traditional Christmas celebration at home. In anticipation of the surge in British tourists, currency specialist BestForeignExchange.com is planning to offer the most competitive travel money deals to facilitate a more affordable overseas holiday.
London-based travel money provider BestForeignExchange.com offers most competitive exchange rates during peak travel season to ensure its city goers get the most for their money while venturing abroad. The currency expert announced it will be monitoring the rates in the money market in order to give Londoners the best travel money deal for the Christmas season amidst millions of British travellers planning to celebrate their holiday away from home.
According to a survey based on 10,000 UK travellers by Stay Sure—published by Female First on 19 Nov—over 5 million Brits will be travelling abroad this Christmas season. The report further suggests that the most popular reason people gave for opting for a festive getaway was to escape the drab weather conditions experienced in the UK during this time of year. While Canary Island remains the favourite Christmas and New Year destination among short haul travellers, Florida, Sydney, and New York are the three most preferred long-distance destinations amongst the Brits.
“As the Pound Sterling is stronger compared to the U.S. dollar , British tourists currently are able to gain value for their money when purchasing foreign currency to spend abroad. Our advice is to buy travel money when the exchange rates are in your favour, as the money market is in current flux and can be fairly unpredictable,” advised Trevor Samuel, Senior Manager at BestForeignExchange.com.
All major and exotic currencies are available at each of BestForeignExchange.com’s 11 London-based branches for same-day collection—or received by post via Royal Mail through its next-day delivery option.
“Many service providers levy various charges on bank cards that holiday travellers are often unaware of until they receive their monthly bank statement, at which point it’s too late,” concluded Samuel. “In contrast, we don’t charge any commission on the buying or selling of foreign bank notes at BestForeignExchange.com, and all of our rates are displayed in real-time at each store location to give consumers the transparency they deserve.”
Owned and operated by Thomas Exchange Global, BestForeignExchange.com offers the most competitive exchange rates in London and customers that reserve currencies online will be assured the same exchange rate until close of business on the particular day despite any adverse fluctuations. They stock the widest range of foreign currencies in London with over 120 types of foreign bank notes. All foreign currency buy/sell transactions are free of any commission or charges.
Thomas Exchange Global also offers International Money Transfer Service where funds can be remitted to overseas bank accounts within one to two days. With commission free service for transfers over £10,000 backed by competitive exchange rates, customers are assured of a better deal and a substantial saving compared to banks and money brokers.
