For guests booking our self-catering cottages – Carrick Eriskay and Eight Askernish – we can now accept payments in €uros – without conversion to £terling [Euros to Sterling]. We can also accept €uros from customers of the Hebridean Woolshed.
This new service saves guests the costs arising from currency conversion using credit or debit cards, both for payment of rental to us, and in returning damages deposit. And we benefit by topping up our Spanish bank account without costs of conversion from £ to €. The conversion rate we use is that offered at that time by Transferwise, which provides currency exchange services and multi-currency accounts and cards : their rates are amongst the most favourable to be got anywhere. *
In both cases, the option has to be requested by the guest/customer.
Any queries : contact us, and we’ll be glad to assist!
* We receive no incentive from Transferwise or anyone else for this post. It’s purely a personal recommendation.
