It isn’t good news for travellers at UK airports as tourists are being offered almost one pound for one dollar.
The rate is always poor at airports compared to other currency exchange outlets,however this is a clear indication of the trouble sterling is in.
Those exchanging pounds at the UK’s biggest airport, Heathrow, are finding as little as $1.05 coming back across the counter.
Since 16 April the pound has fallen by 11.77% against the US dollar.
In some currency outlets, sterling buys less than a euro, with tourists being offered just 92 cents for every pound.

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
