Japan Is 14% Cheaper Thanks to Exchange Rate Changes: Time To Go Overseas NOW

Catch it while you can!

Time to dust off the passport! Many currencies are trading much lower to the dollar than just a few months ago. The Japanese yen, for example, was 109 to the dollar last year and is now over 120. Instant 14% discount! The Canadian dollar, the Euro, and many others have dropped in just a few months. Last summer I averaged $1.25 for a Euro and now it’s $1.07. Even if hotel rates go up to compensate, points keep your rates steady (until the next devaluation).

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the day to day it’s hard to just do. Today I’m asking you to DO. Decide where you want to go. Book that ticket. Use the extra pocket money for an extra order of sushi. Or glass of wine in Italy. Or order of Poutine in Montreal. Just GO.

    I am excited to see the Euro amounts, I was worried it would be around $1.40 to the dollar for our trip but I never had gotten around to looking it up. Glad I was wrong!

      It’s crazy! There’s even gossip that it may go under $1, which is hasn’t done since 2001.

    We are planning a trip to Japan this summer. I knew the euro was down but isn’t know the yen was as well. Woohoo!

    We already have a trip booked for mid-September to Spain and the UK. I’m hoping the Euro will still be low then, but I’m not sure. Que sera, que sera. I’m also not counting on the British pound to be low, but not sure where it is right now. I suspect it’s still pretty strong. London will still be an expensive city, but we don’t care. We love it and we’re going! 🙂
