Do you intend to rent a luxury gite in France? If so, you may be pleased to know it’ll now cost you less to do so, because the pound recently hit its strongest versus the euro in 26 months, or since July 24th 2012, at 1.2844.

What this means for you is that, when you exchange currencies to rent a luxury gite in France, you’ll now get far more euros. For example, were you to exchange £1,250 you’d now get +€180 more than if you’d done so 18 months ago, when the pound was weaker.

So, with +€180 more in your pocket at no extra cost to you, you could extend your holiday in a French gite, splash out, or simply enjoy a substantial saving!

Moreover, it could become even cheaper to rent a luxury gite in France, as the pound looks set to rise further against the euro. Sterling could continue to strengthen, because the UK economy is forecast to easily out-pace the Eurozone this year.

So, as the pound rises against the euro, it’s a fantastic time to rent a luxury gite in France!
