The US dollar is one of the most powerful currencies in the world. It is the currency most used in international transactions specifically in exchanging them for euros or pounds.
The dollar is most commonly used on holidays to America, but is also used in some South American countries like Ecuador, Panama and El Salvador as the main form of currency. The dollar exchange rate is pretty weak compared to the pound, so people on holiday in the Americas, although having to spend more money on flights, will be making their money back once they land and their holiday begins.

Where to Spend your US Dollars
Opportunities to spend your dollars are endless due to the size of America, but the two main destinations we fly to are Las Vegas and Florida, each offering different opportunities for you to spend your holiday money. Throughout the US there is an ideal opportunity for you to spend your travel money on designer clothes at a bargain price because of the strength of the pound against the dollar. There are flagship stores like Abercrombie and Fitch, where you will be able to get clothes for about half the price you would pay for them back home or enjoy large stores like Macy’s which have the best offers for designer label clothes.
Get the Most out of Your US Dollars
When you are tired of shopping for clothes in America they offer great deals on trainers in sports stores where you can buy all the best labels for phenomenal prices due to the current exchange rate at the moment. Favorite purchases for men are Timberland boots, while women will seek Ugg boots and both will probably get them at a cracking price. Gadgets and computers are purchased in the States for a real cheap price as the dollar conversion is so good for British travellers at the moment. I pods and laptops are the most popular purchase, where you get outstanding value for your holiday money.
US Hotspot: Las Vegas
Las Vegas has clothes and gadget stores like the rest of America, but most travellers go there to spend their holiday money at the famous casinos. However if you don’t want to gamble then there is the chance to go and watch some amazing shows along the strip. There is also the opportunity to go on some fantastic road trips to marvel at the wonderful landscape of America, in particular with regards to the Grand Canyon which is a short drive away from Las Vegas
Enjoy the Best Entertainment America has to Offer
Outside of shopping, America has a number of recreational activities you can spend your travel money on, from going to the amazing theme parks like Disney World, to watching their sports like Basketball at Madison Square Gardens in New York or simply enjoying the amazing food they have on offer. The strength of the pound against the dollar is never more prominent than when you go for meals in America. The quality and size of the dishes from lobster and steaks to fast food is incomparable price wise with travellers getting double the portion of food they would get in Britain for half the price with their holiday money.
