    Concerning the currency issue with BA, if you are registered in the UK as a BAEC member then BA will always invoice in GBP, natural really.

    Er, no. For flights starting in AMS, they invoice in euros. The the salient point is that the fare is quoted in euros, but they simply took 1,940 euros and asked for a payment of 1.940 pounds.

    Hi TOH, are you a UK BAEC member, or elsewhere?

    Yes. Gold.

    Hi ToH. As I mentioned, I asked because I believe that BA prices are in the currency of Country where you are registered. I also am Gold, registered in Portugal. Yesterday I bought tickets from LHR to LIS and the price was in Euros, not GBP. At the final payment stage there was a reminder that I will be charged in Euros, before the Accept box.

    No. If you start in AMS, you really invoiced in euros. At least, I always have been.
