The rate of the euro is at its lowest in years. As a result, holidays in many European countries should be cheaper than last year, by even a few percent. If the purchasing power of the Polish currency is the determining factor for our travels, Europe is definitely the best choice. Where else is it worth going on holiday? Marcin Lipka, currency analyst of Cinkciarz.pl, provides you with some propositions.
The euro rate hasn't been so low for almost four years. This results in holidays in many European countries to be cheaper by a few percent. If we additionally consider the fact that according to GUS the salaries of Polish companies has increased recently by 5 percent. There was also barely any inflation in the eurozone. As a result, a holiday in Spain or in Portugal can be cheaper for Polish tourists by even 10 percent.
We will also pay less for travelling to Scandinavia, however, it will not be inexpensive. Decreases of oil prices and the policy of the Swedish central bank, have caused the Norwegian krona to lose over 3 percent in relation to the zloty, and the Swedish currency – almost 5 percent.
