Hol­i­day­mak­ers could be in for a shock when they add up the fi­nal cost of trips abroad this sum­mer.

Chris Saint, a se­nior an­a­lyst at Har­g­reaves Lans­down Cur­rency Ser­vice, said the pound’s slide against the euro means a fam­ily could pay £141 more to get the same amount of euro they would have ob­tained a year ago for £1,000.

The Turk­ish lira is one of the few cur­ren­cies where the UK pound goes fur­ther than in June last year, he said.
