Sending Money to the Gambia

Hi. Anyone used BAYBA since their recent troubles? I need to send some money over and the rate looks great GMD 38.5 to the £ and only a £5 fee. Fed up with being ripped off by Western Union.

No problem LancashireChrisCarol. I will say one thing though, although it does seem that you can get a better exchange rate with Bayba, there aren't as many places to collect the money as there are with Western Union. It's worth noting that, dependent on where the recipents live. Not sure where you collect Redcoat cash from.

Hi Scudder...

Yes, I 've been using western union because of the ease of pick-up over there, have worked out that I would have saved about £5 with Bayba, so as long as the recipients aren't losing out, I don't mind the defecit.

Thanks for the info, will certainly consider Bayba if I ever have to send larger amounts!

I, like Grannysticks was very impressed whenI started getting regular texts from Bayba. Tht is, until they became a little too regular for my liking. I.e two a day, three days on the trot! To give them their due, I phoned and asked them to stop sending them and they did!

I sent £100.00 on Thursday through Bayba. The was higher than W.U. and money was collected with no worries. Will use them in future,or Redcoat.

I enquired at my bank (Yorkshire) a couple of days ago... they said that I would have to pay £14 to send money, and also that there may be a charge at the Gambia end as well!
