You can pay in Pounds Sterling or in Euros if you prefer.

You can pay in Sterling by making a BACS transfer to my UK bank account or pay in Euros by making a BACS transfer to my french bank account.

IMPORTANT: Because exchange rates may vary between when you pay your deposit and when you pay the balance you need to calculate the amount in Euros just before you make each payment.
