Money exchange, will it get better or is it at it's peak?

This superb summer weather we are having, (if you're a duck or a blackbird!) sadly can only drive people away from this country.
Shame because I cruised down the River Trent yesterday and had superb lunch on board, the weather was OK but definately not like the Med.
The Spaniards yet again won a European Football Title (under 19's) and the country continues to bask in sun and very hot weather regardless of it's sad financial situation.
So the next investigation was have looking at the money exchange and to this end did a tour around all the Main Banks and some Building Societies. The rate at the moment is €1.27 to the Pound. The Banks all wanted to give between €121 to almost €124.
I thought that that was OK until I started to look on line. And here nearly all the Banks had warned about the charges that the competitors especially the on line one's would make.
Well the worthy winner is: http://www.mytravelmoney.co.uk
I was able to return about €1.255 to the Pound. Yes they do charge ......... a whole £3.95
But they are still winners hands down. So there is no doubt about to whom I shall swap my hard earned dough, the only question is ........... will it continue to rise or is it about at i'ts peak?
