If you're getting ready for a holiday in Europe this summer you might want to watch the pound to Euro exchange rate closely.

Uncertainty ahead of the EU referendum could impact the exchange rate ahead of your travels, leaving you with less to spend on sangria and straw donkeys.

The pound dropped to 78p per Euro yesterday, with the slump blamed on polls released that showed more Brits wanted to leave the EU than remain.

An average of the six most recent polls compiled by whatukthinks.org, between May 30 and June 6, showed 51 per cent voting to leave the EU and 49 per cent voting to remain.

Today the exchange rate is 1.2 Euros to the pound — but this could fluctuate further in the coming weeks as the EU referendum draws closer.

The deadline to register to vote in the EU referendum on June 23 has been extended.

People now have until midnight on Thursday July 9 to register to vote after a computer glitch prevented some from signing up before the midnight June 6 deadline.

Voters can register online on the gov.uk website — those who were registered to vote in the May 2016 elections and the 2015 General Election, who still live at the same address, do not need to register again.
