Moving to France

More and more Brits are moving to France each and every year. The tranquil south of France is growing in popularity for expats both young and old. Cheaper house prices and the low cost of living are a big draw, as many UK residence are able to get a lot more for their money overseas. But, there's one thing most people forget when they decide to move abroad... currency exchange. If you want to get the very best out of your UK savings, then you're going to need the very best currency exchange rate around. Settling for a poor exchange rate on offer at your bank could end up costing you a fortune, so before you move to pastures new make sure you're getting the very best deal for your money.

If you're like most people, changing your pounds over into Euros is the last thing on your mind. There is just so much to think about with the packing, selling up and saying goodbye, that there's hardly any time left to think about your finances. Most people are often so caught up in the move that they leave the exchanging of their savings and money right until the last minute, but exchanging at the wrong time could end up costing you a hefty sum.

You may think that you have a certain amount of money to start your new life abroad, but once you exchange your pounds over into Euros you may be in for a nasty surprise. If the market isn't in your favour on the day you change your money over you could end up losing a large percentage of the money to the poor rate, not to mention the commission fees. That's why it's so important for you to start thinking about your currency exchange rate long before you begin your move to France.
