Paying a deposit for a site.

We are trying to place a deposit for a pitch on a site in Northern Italy for this summer. They would like us to place a deposit of 100 euros in their bank account. The last time we tried to do this we had to pay for an electronic transfer. Anybody any ideas on how to avoid this?

For such a small amount, why not buy a Euro travellers cheque and mail it to them?

I think we were charged about £9.00 for a similar transfer to Spain, not exactly going to break the bank is it?...

I think Natwest charged me about £9 for an electronic transfer in 2009.

It may seem like an additional expense on the cost of your holiday, but it's got to be much better than the risks of sending cash in the post, plus you are going to Italy.

John.

Use a credit card.

The last time we had to do this was for a site in Spain a few years ago. Nationwide charged us £75 for this.

Never ever paid a deposit in Europe inc. Italy. If you do a booking through ACSI Site they do not ask for it.

      I’m off again on Thursday and hopefully getting more. That fish was my first from this water for a long time. I left the club about 15 years ago. There have been a lot of changes since then especially in the fish size apparently there are at least 20x20s and 4x30s. So I am hoping for something a lot bigger
