Catlanza VI - Private Luxury Charter

We had a sneak preview last week aboard Lanzarote’s newest luxury yacht, Catlanza VI. Many readers will be familiar with her big sister, which does daily trips to Papagayo from Puerto Calero.

What's The Euro Rate In Lanzarote Today?

It’s the most asked question on Facebook, email, or anywhere else where readers connect with us. Especially since Brexit, and with the Pound falling steadily. 

There are a large number of booze / cigarette / electrical shops on the island that offer money exchange as a sideline. Most display a rate outside the shop, and then claim that’s the rate for travellers cheques, before offering a cent less for cash. 

The trouble is, the market is so volatile at the moment, that the rate is changing several times a day. 

And all that means we can’t keep up with the latest rate being offered in the resorts.

So here’s an easy rule of thumb that will give you a pretty good guide as to what rate is being offered at this very moment.

Check the current Interbank Rate online and subtract 2 cents.
