What can impact the GBP to EUR exchange rate?

Firstly, GBP to EUR is a currency pair. The pound to euro exchange rate is impacted via a variety of different conditions. We can split this down into both political and economic drivers. If we look into the detail of the GBP to EUR rate, it is the price of one currency in relation to another. As the currency pair (GBP to EUR) moves one currency is gaining or losing strength against the other.

If the pound is strengthening against the euro, this means that the value of the pound is increasing relative to the euro. Therefore, you are getting more euros for every pound that you sell. If the pound is weakening against the euro then the reverse is taking place.

As mentioned, both the pound and euro are clearly impacted by both political events and economic factors. A prime example of a political event is to look at the impact of the Brexit vote in 2016 on the value of the pound against the euro. See graph below.

The pound dropped by almost 7% against the EUR following the vote.

We can consider economic impacts such as an increase in the base rate, i.e. the rate of interest which is set by the bank of England. If a rate hike is expected, we could see the pound strengthen.

The same principles apply to the Euro. Therefore economic and political factors in both regions will impact the pound euro exchange rate.

How much can the pound euro exchange rate move in a week?

We refer to the big movements in currency pairs with volatility. Volatility literally is the unpredictable and erratic movement of exchange rates in the foreign exchange market. In recent years given both the political landscape and the emergence of a pandemic, we have seen GBP to EUR fluctuate a great deal and it is not uncommon to see movements that exceed 1% per day.

So even on a transfer for example, of £100,000 into Euros, that could easily be the difference of £1000.

Can you rely on forecasts for GBP to EUR?

No - is the honest answer. Nobody has a crystal ball in working out what the future holds.

There are many websites out there that claim to provide forecasts and indicators as to where they provide opinions on where GBP EUR is heading. There is a great deal of technical jargon which is sometimes used to balance their arguments but being a seasoned professional in the foreign exchange margin, I can say that a lot of the time they get it wrong.

Do not make your judgement based on forecasts. Everyone would like to exchange currency at the best possible time, but this is not the case.

If I can't rely on forecasts then how can I get the best GBP to EUR rate?

How to get the best pound to euro exchange rate

The UK's only sole provider of foreign currency without hidden fees. Compare and see how much you can save by buying Euros at the real exchange rate.

The first step on your quest to find the best euro exchange rate is to understand how the rate is structured. Most financial institutions, when selling euros to you in the UK will refer to the Sterling Pound as the base currency. The pound is also abbreviated as GBP. Therefore for £1 you will receive X Euros.

For example, as of writing this article, the real interbank exchange rate is showing GBP/EUR 1.1018. This means for every £1 is equal to 1.1018 Euros.

Therefore the higher the pound to euro rate, the more euros you end up with in your pocket!

The euro is also abbreviated as EUR, so make sure you select this from the drop down menu on the converter.

To make sure that you are getting the best value when you buy euros, always check the rate of exchange on offer and the final value of Euros that you receive after all deductions are made. Always check just before confirmation, how much am I paying in pounds and how much am I receiving in euros.

The best currency exchange rates are found online and are much cheaper than using high street brands and obtaining it last minute at the airport.
