Pound Sterling and Euro Forecasts

The coronavirus pandemic has replaced Brexit in the headlines for 2020 which is favourable for GBP.  Read GBP to EUR Forecast

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the GBP vs EUR, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

Pound Sterling (GBP)

GBP will rise to 1.25 against the euro according to Standard Bank. The coronavirus pandemic has replaced Brexit in the headlines and means that the deadline for a trade deal with the Eurozone this year could either be pushed back, delaying a risk for the currency, or see more favorable terms given to the U.K.

This is a remarkable change of fortunes for GBP which was sold-off after the Brexit vote and again after the virus forced a lockdown in London, the world’s largest foreign-exchange centre. Against the dollar, sterling touched the lowest level in 35 years in March as traders sought the safety of the USD.

Euro (EUR)

The Euro spent 2019 on a downwards trajectory, starting the year with highs at US1.1550 but then slid all year until October where it bottomed out at US$1.09 on Oct 1, close to long-term lows. Since then it has climbed back over the 1 year avergae of US1.11 towards US1.14.

Credit Agricole see the Euro hitting US1.20 by the end of 2020 due to a growing diversification away from the greenback.

Rabobank told Bloomberg TV that they see the Euro holding its value in an otherwise difficult virus affected year for most currencies.

How to get Best GBP to EUR Exchange Rates

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

The transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
