US Presidential Election update | Travelex currency commentary

10th November 2016

There’s no denying that the US Presidential Election has been making waves around the world. Following election results, the pound has gained slightly against the US dollar and more significantly against the euro.

What this means for you is that on a £500 transaction today, you would get an extra €15.85 or US$13.10 – compared to a recent low point in October*.

This should come as welcome news if you’re heading off on holiday this winter!
