Money Worries and Currency Exchanges in Europe

andres del risco

Concerns for Italy, Spain, Greece and other European countries are sure to be high on everybody's minds, maybe if you have a holiday booked to go there, but particularly if you have already planned to migrate there this summer! Never fear, there are plenty of safeguards you can prepare to ease your mind.

Over the last week, the exchange rate for the British Pound to the Euro has managed to stay steadily around the 1.15 mark, despite the fluctuations and falls in the European markets. In the short term, there is not too much fluctuation predicted. This may ease tourists' and holiday makers' minds slightly, knowing that the exchange rate you get will not significantly change, though there are never any guarantees! One thing that is guaranteed though is the necessity of finding the right company to exchange your currency.

Exchanging any currency, from as little as you will need for a 'romantic weekend in Rome' expenses right up to starting a property development business in Seville, you must be sure to get a good deal. Using your bank seems like the easiest option at first, but, there is high possibility that their exchange rates are slightly lowered, and you almost certainly will incur a charge everytime you make an electronic transaction. There is also the option of using a money sending bureau as they offer a rapid service, however, sometimes it is not all what it seems. Exchange rates can be severely limited in some bureaus, and there is usually a hefty initial charge for the use of their services.

OK, so now i guess i have chalked off all of the 'typical' possibilities. The alternative? A foreign exchange broker! There is also a risk here too, and again, you will have to find the right one. Selecting a broker who obtain their profit from the trading of the currency benefits small-time customers as you barely feel the effect! Finding a company who do not charge commission or service charges is important, so too is making sure they are authorised (ideally by the FSA) to ensure security! If you are just going on holiday, or transferring a small amount of money, take a look at a service such as Xendpay by RationalFX. On the other side of the story is people who are planning to move all of their finances abroad to relocate or buy property. Again, RationalFX will be able to help, who have a team dedicated to do just that. Visit their Overseas Property information for more details!
