IMRG MetaPack Cross-Border Index - January 2019

Reporting December 2018 Performance

  • Cross-border volumes have resumed the trend of year-on-year growth following a period of slight decline
  • The use of cross-border services stayed below 30% as expected for December as shoppers looked closer to home for their Christmas purchases. However, this did not drop back as much as in previous years meaning that the relative weakness of sterling, especially against the euro, maintained the UK as a value for money destinations for overseas shoppers.
