Monkey's Quick currency guide

This is a sample from our 'Infopack', the useful resource you receive with lot's of information on the whole trip - once you've booked of course.

The currency exchange rates are taken from the very useful Yahoo Financial Currency Converter

This is produced as a quick guide to check currencies when shopping, for example. In most cases the price has been rounded up, so Russian руб 500 is displayed as 'ten pound for cash', not £ 10.21.

Exchange rates are not written in stone but were correct as of 27th January 2010
