APH compares foreign exchange rates

Exchange Rates

With the pound recently falling further against the value of the Dollar and Euro, banks and money exchange services have reported record sales in travel money orders with Sainsbury’s Bank Travel Money seeing online orders for foreign currency almost tripling in February*. In order for travelers to ensure their holiday budgets stretch as far as possible, Airport Parking and Hotels (APH) has compiled a guide highlighting the best foreign exchange rates available in the UK market.

The research compares the foreign exchange rates for popular currencies offered by 13 of the top money exchange companies in the UK, including the Post Office, Marks & Spencer, Moneycorp and My Travel Cash.
