Co-Founder at MyTravelMoney, Stevan Litobac, comments:
“We hope that the PriceCheck data continues to empower UK travellers! Airport bureaus and high street banks continually try to manipulate people with tricky marketing and markups around 10%. Now people are starting to understand that online specialists can offer the same services, while saving travellers around 9% on each purchase. With knowledge comes power!
