Travellers waste foreign currency at airports

| October 23, 2007

Research by Abbey has established that Britons collectively fritter away £1 billion each year by using up their foreign currency in airport departure lounges.

Approximately 16 million Britons confessed to wasting foreign money while waiting to board their flight home. The age group 25-34 is most likely to waste their foreign currency.

Almost 40% of people purchase tacky souvenirs with 60% buying expensive refreshments.

A spokesperson for Abbey was amazed by the findings and highlighted that converting the money back into sterling is far more cost effective than wasting it on things you don’t need, even with the commission fee.
