We all know that foreign travel can be expensive but this is exacerbated by the cost of exchanging money at different locations.
Airports foreign exchanges are particulary poor value for money and will cost up to an additional £12 for every £100 that you change. Reports from Moneysupermarket suggest that the best value would be by using a prepaid card in Europe. Even worse is the ICE Booth at St Pancras Station, where if you buy £500 worth of Euros you will end up with €500!
This makes all inclusive holidays even more appealing as the up front cost is paid in pounds and minimizes the costs when travelling abroad whilst also being able to manage your budget in lean times such as these.
