Flybe seals deal on new foreign exchange service
Flybe, Europe's largest and most successful regional airline, has signed a new foreign exchange service deal with Cornwall-based Travel Money Services (TMS) from Hayle, further committing its support to the continued success and growth of the South West economy.
The new service will benefit the millions of passengers who fly overseas with Flybe for both business and leisure and who are looking for the best and most convenient forex deal available.
With six years of foreign exchange experience under its belt and tens of thousands of satisfied customers all over the UK, TMS' rates are extremely favourable when compared with those offered on the High Street and, with zero per cent commission, give passengers more money for their pounds.
Mike Rutter, Flybe's Chief Commercial Officer says: "We are always on the lookout for affordable add-on benefits to help our passengers and this has become even more crucial in these tough economic times. TMS has years of experience in the foreign exchange business and as their head office is based in the West Country, and not London or Manchester, they are able to trim the cost margins and pass these savings on to our passengers."
Adds TMS Business Development Manager, Paul Trevail: "'Our ethos, like Flybe's, is focused on providing quality customer service and satisfaction and as such our business has flourished in a highly competitive market place.
"We are extremely proud of our percentage of repeat customers who realise there is sometimes such a thing as a free lunch - that includes free delivery. The average saving on a Euro transaction is around €35 per £1 000 ordered - that's more than enough for a paella in Palma or a baguette in Bergerac!"
Customers can access the TMS order page online through Flybe's website www.flybe.com under the banner Order Currency Now banner or phone the company direct on its Freephone number 0800 612 8202.
