Britons in Europe: How have you been affected by the drop in the value of the pound?

In London morning deals, sterling sank to $1.2887 -- its lowest level since October 2020, also as Britain's Prime Minister comes under renewed political pressure. (Photo by Tolga Akmen / AFP)

The value of the pound against the Euro has fallen again in recent days following the UK government's mini-budget. But how will it impact your lives. We want to hear from you.


The pound is on the slide once again and that means for those living in Europe who have income in sterling, it can have a huge impact.

It is of course not the first time the pound has slid in value. We saw the same happen in the immediate aftermath of the Brexit referendum, which hit many of our readers hard.

British pensioners living across Europe who received the income in pounds were particularly hard hit.

Please take a minute to fill in this survey and share it with people you know. We'd like to explain just how a drop in the value of the pound affects the lives of those Britons living abroad.

Thanks for your time.
