P&O Ferries is urging motorhomers to take advantage of the euro exchange rate and is urging holidaymakers and motorhomers to head south over the Channel in order to take advantage of the improving euro exchange rate, reducing the cost of continental holidays in 2012. The ferry company says that the sterling-euro exchange rate has improved by more than 8% over the past 12 months and, with continuing economic turmoil in the eurozone, looks set to keep offering improving returns.

Simon Johnson, passenger services director for P&O Ferries, said: “With a continuing recession and a long wet spring at home, it’s no wonder our customers are starting to think about their summer holidays. We think they are in for a pleasant surprise this year when they realise the economics of taking their cars abroad are working in their favour. British families heading to the southern part of Europe in search of sea, sun and sand will find the cost of fuel for the car, dining out and shopping in France or other European countries is much better value than a year ago.”
