We saw unprecedented sales of Travel Money earlier this week following the launch of one of our biggest Travel Money reports of the year, the Holiday Money Report, combined with speculation ahead of the Prime Minister’s speech yesterday.
The report featured a retrospective review of travel trends in 2016 and predictions for 2017, including worldwide holiday costs.
Having gained widespread coverage across national and regional media as well as interviews with Andrew Brown from Post Office Travel Money on Sky and Radio 5 Live, online currency sales – mainly US dollars and Euros – were up a massive 100 per cent on Monday compared to the same day last year.
Andrew said: “2017 is already proving to be an interesting year for Travel Money, especially following the latter part of 2016 when sterling continued to fluctuate significantly and market sensitivity heightened.
“This has meant there has been a huge amount of work to ensure we meet the unpredictability of demand, and I want to thank all the colleagues across the business who have helped to ensure we continue to provide a great service for our customers.
“With more uncertainty yet to come, it’s hugely important that we continue to maintain our presence within the media as both an expert in the industry and number one provider of Travel Money. Our Holiday Money report is a great example of this.”
