More sangria in Spain for your sterling
The Pound has hit a new three-and-a-half year high against the Euro, meaning good news for British holidaymakers this summer.
According to Claus Sorensen, CEO, Spain-holiday.com, “British holidaymakers can expect around 10% more purchasing power in Spain this year. Families travelling to Spain will get £47.41 more than last year when they change £500, while the price of a three-course meal with wine in Spain costs just £21 pp.”
