Today’s big news of a particular interest to us is that 1 US$ equals 1 Euro. The last time this happened was in 2002 when Euro was not yet widely used. Today, 19 out of 27 European Union member countries use Euro as their official currency.
Simple way to calculate is that we could be looking at a 15% discount on our travels to Europe.
Our mailboxes are inundated with messages from travel agents as well as airlines and cruise companies. Some are offering 80-90% discounts on our future travels. Should they give us 80% discount on our airfare to catch a cruise that’s offering 80% savings off the regular fare, yes we would consider! Unfortunately, prices for air travel is going up.
