The Aussie dollar continues to drop
The British Pound has been strong against the Australian Dollar for a while now, but overnight the disparity grew even greater, meaning that £1 = AUS$2.14, at time of writing.
So if you’re travelling to Australia soon, your money is going to stretch a lot further. This is great news if you’ve been painstakingly saving for your dream gap year down under; you might be able to leave sooner than you thought, or afford more activities than you had planned. It’s the perfect time to get booking.
If you’re planning on taking cash, it could be worth heading to the bureau de change sooner rather than later, although the Aussie dollar is expected to remain weak for some time.
To summarise, not only is Australia a cheap place to be right now, it’s also riding high on the world’s most liveable cities chart. Nice.
