Pound Sterling - Euro Forecasting

GBP will rise to 1.20 per euro according to Standard Bank. The coronavirus pandemic means that the deadline for a trade deal this year could either be pushed back, delaying a risk for the currency, or see more favourable terms given to the U.K.

September was a relatively quiet month for the euro, which it is not as vulnerable as commodity currencies when sentiment shifts from risk-on to risk-off. However, the euro did see losses against the USD and JPY which fell 2.28% and 2.63% respectively, due to the risk-off environment driving safe-haven demand in those currencies. Trade negotiations will continue to weigh on both the pound and euro until an agreement is reached. Both parties agree the deal needs to be made in October. Watch for the ECB announcement on interest rates and monetary policy on October 29 which could trigger volatility. October Currency Update

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.
