FairFX offers 1.5 USD for GBP

Currency exchange provider FairFX is offering one of the cheapest deals available on US dollars.

The website is currently the only provider offering a rate of $1.50 for £1.

Stephen Heath, FairFX.com chief executive, said the rate is “good news for anyone planning a trip to the states”.

Heath said that because of the current volatility in exchange rates, holidaymakers planning a trip to the US this summer should change their money now to take advantage of the rate.

“Credit crunched holidaymakers have had a tough time trying to stretch their finances of late,” he said.

FairFX money comes on a pre-paid currency card, similar to a credit card.

Earlier this year, some bureau de change booths at UK airports were charging over £1 for a single euro.
