Strong currency sales have been recorded by one provider despite the current economic conditions.

Strong currency sales have been recorded by one provider despite the current economic conditions.

The Post Office analysed currency purchases between September 11th and 16th and compared them with the corresponding figures from the same period in 2007.

It found that there was a healthy increase in sales for all the major currencies.

Helen Warburton, Post Office head of travel services, said: “September sales have been among the most buoyant this year, showing no sign of the downturn that might have been expected as a result of the credit crunch. Foreign currency sales are up collectively across the board.”

The news echoes the findings from a survey carried out earlier this month by Travelex, which showed that an increasing number of people are choosing breaks outside Europe – such as holidays to South Africa – in order to save money on exchange rates, since the euro does not currently offer good value for money against the pound.
