The GBP tops $2.00

Current price is $2.016

Will this cause you to cancel your visit to the UK?

I'll bet many US establishments will see a lot of teeth correction, cosmetic surgery and hair treatments being done on the British this year.

The rates of various currencies change all the time.
How much can a change influence one's travel budget? A couple of hundred?

Not a reason to cancel a trip IMO.( You are probably spending thousands anyway!)

The answer is a resounding "NO". Still going this week. With us Canadians the exchange is even worse. Nothing will prevent me from traveling to the UK (hopefully).

Those Brits are so fortunate, a good portion of cruisers on my trip to Alaska last week were from the UK. Our money is like Monoply for them at this point They are so lucky!

No, I won't cancel. We've budgeted for hotels. The only thing we may change is our dining spending. We usually stop at the chain Japanese restaurant Benihana (don't ask, it's sort of become a ritual) but I don't think it's worth $100 USD per person at this point.

travel2live, we were in Canada last week also and quite a few retail outlets and our hotel offered even money for USD, no savings for us. Quite a difference from the last time we visited. Love the Canucks too!

that would be the last thing to stop me...in my mind, I already thought of it as 2:1 when I booked my hotels and while I was there 3 years ago, I did the same. It's all part of the cost...and since I'm not a foodie, my meals don't cost me that much anyway.
