Tourist rates at airports are currently changing Sterling at parity, a sure sign of street expectation.

And 1.17 currently available on Transferwise!!  That's compared to the 1.15 I got with them last week...

The exchange rate for 2015 is 1.37.  I think it was about 1.23 for 2014, so that would explain some of the increase.

If you've you've got an HSBC account you can open a euro account with them.  There's no monthly fees and you get a decent rate when you transfer money between your sterling and euro accounts and vice versa.  You don't get a debit card though but you can withdraw euros from your euro account at the branch without any charges.

They wouldn't have got anything back if the UK wasn't part of the EU.

But if the UK was part of the European Economic Area they would have smiley (which is what the UK will hopefully become)

I wouldn't hold your breath.  Rajoy announced a few years back that bank holidays would be moved to a Monday to avoid the "puentes" that the Spanish love.  This still hasn't happened and doubt it ever will.

I know a lot of the bigger companies (mainly non-Spanish) in Madrid have adopted a more Western timetable but I don't think the Siesta will disappear anytime soon.  Especially not in southern Spain/Andalucia.
