How low will you go

Just thought Id ask. Now the dollar is at 1.25:

How low before you say not going at that rate.

I'd still go. For the amount I spend I'm not bothered about the exchange rate. This year I'm staying at Disney and have free dining and the only place I'm going off site is Discovery Cove. Breakfast and lunch are included there. So the only money I'll be spending is on Uber to and from DC, tips and souvenirs.

It is what it is, we have been when it was $2 to the 1, we just have less to spend now for the amount of 's we exchange.
We've been once or twice a year since 2007 and will probably continue to do the same, the exchange rate is only relevant to the amount of dollars we get back for our pound. I know I'm stating facts here but if I'm going on holiday (and I am regardless) then I have to accept it.

The poor exchange rate has definitely been one of the main factors for us deciding not to go next year. We can afford it, but we don't feel it's worth the increased cost.

Average dollar rate last year was 1.33..so even if you buy everything at 1.25 then the extra cost of a 10k holiday last year would in real terms this year cost an extra 650. Now that's assuming every part of the holiday is impacted by the dollar rate...hotel/villa, tickets, food and spending money may well be but not sure about flight prices
