    It may be worth considering UK folks opening a US bank account and "feeding" it whenever the exchange rate is favourable.
    We had to open one when we bought our house over there and now when we go over we immediately think in $$`s so the exchange rate makes no difference whether the goes up or down.....and we get a bit of interest on the balance also.
