International wire transfer or intl money order or??

Jump to last reply

We're planning a long trip to Europe next summer and are already booking week-long self-catering units. The one we're set on in Normandy, France is requiring 100 British Pounds as a deposit. The owner doesn't acept credit cards or paypal. It's a small operation. Our credit union charges $50 for the wire transfer and the international money order is even more. Has anyone encountered this before? It's a highly rated B&B with self-catering cottage and the owner is friendly in emails. I'd love any suggestions about how to get the money abroad without spending loads of extra money!

Thanks! I've been enjoying getting MANY ideas on this forum for our big 6 week trip next summer. We'll be traveling with our 4 & 6 year old daughters so week long stays are our strategy for success!
