Which foreign climes could take your money further this summer?

Turkey is being tipped as one of the hottest destinations this summer – and not just because of the climate

Turkey is being tipped as one of the hottest destinations this summer – and not just because of the climate – according to currency specialist Travelex.

The pound has been making gains against the Turkish lira in the last four months. Holidaymakers changing £500 into Turkish lira can expect to receive around £30 in extra spending money, Travelex said.

Value-conscious Britons prepared to travel further afield might want to head to South Africa. The pound has risen fairly strongly against the South African rand compared with last year, which means travellers will have around £70 more for every £500 they exchange.

Exchange rates will fluctuate and Travelex has a travel rate tracker at www.travelex.co.uk
