January 2015 Canadian Dollar Rate Roundup

The Canadian Dollar has had a fantastic month, for anyone looking to exchange pounds to CAD anyway.  Starting at around $1.78/£1 it has steadily climbed all month to reach 1.9 on Saturday.
If you are heading out to Canada for skiing, its a fantastic time to order your Canadian Dollars.  The snow is also excellent right now in Whitewater and Red Mountain.
As of this morning the Canadian Dollar was around 7% higher than it was at the start of January with todays best Canadian Dollar rate at 1.901. This converts to you getting around $100 more Canadian Dollars for every £1000 you exchange than you would have done a month ago.
Have fun if you are going to Canada!
