Crystal ball

No one has a crystal ball so predicting when the Euro will rise and fall in comparison to the Pound is pretty hard but it’s not impossible to get an idea of what exchange rate is a good one. If the Euro trades at more than €1.40 to the £1, you’ll be getting a good deal. That’s what history tells us. The strongest that the Pound has ever been against the Euro is €1.55 to the Pound. That was back in June 2004, and then again in February 2007.

Keeping up with current affairs will also give you an idea of where the market stands. When the Eurozone is in crisis (as it too frequently is), there are going to be negative ramifications for the currency. That’s also true of Britain of course but the UK’s not as prone to the sorts of issues that trouble the Eurozone. Remember that a strong Pound can also make a better exchange rate so don’t just look at issues that weaken the Euro.
