Foreign currency exchange rates fluctuate daily. In the past years the, Euro rates versus the US Dollar fluctuated from a low below 1.10 to almost 1.70 (meaning that one Euro cost $1.10 to $1.70 US). It is very difficult to set the price of a tour when we cannot predict what exchange rates will do. We price our tours at $1.10 = € 1 and adjust for fluctuations at final billing. If the rate drops below the original rate, we pass the savings on if rates increase, we must pass those costs on.
