A fair way to get the best value

I have read the letter Lloyds leave us standing (December issue) and was surprised to see that people were using standing orders when a currency exchange organisation is cheaper and allows you to choose the exchange rate

We use Currency Fair and it costs £3.50 per transaction. Once you have set up the transfer, it takes only 24 hours for the transfer from UK without any French bank charges.

This is all done over the internet and, with an appropriate internet security programme, is quite safe.
