Fantastic News For Anyone Travelling To The UK In The Next Few Months

As much as we all complain about Brexit, you gotta admit, one good thing is that the sterling is dropping FAST.

Investment banks recently predicted that the sterling would drop below the value of the euro by 2018, and with RTE reporting this morning that euro has broken through the 92p sterling barrier, it's the highest the single currency has been since a "flash crash" last October.

Right now, £1 will get you €1.09. 

What this means for Irish consumers is pretty flippin' fantastic. You're getting way better value for your money, making cross border trips and shopping in the UK pretty tempting.

Now is the time to use the ol' trick of changing your currency to British Pounds for your online shopping accounts - you'll save a BOMB.

The only downside is that a weak pound is harmful for our exports, due to the fact it makes goods more expensive to British buyers, but sure look.
