What currency should you use?

2019-04-17 11:25 #0 by: Leia

Choosing one currency instead of the other on holiday or abroad can save you a lot of money.

Choosing to pay in pounds when you're on holiday could end up costing you almost 20% more than if you choose the local currency. An experiment asked twins to both spend €334.47 but the twin paying in euros paid the equivalent of £295.83 while the twin who paid in pounds spent £317.73.

Did the twins buy the same things at the same places?
