Fare Wise Travel

Have you been everywhere and seen it all? Don’t forget that you can now have a totally different experience – see the world from space with Virgin Galactica or Blue Origin. Very deep pockets required but something totally extraordinary to tell the grandchildren…

A bit more down to earth – more countries are relaxing their travel and health protocols so less paperwork should mean easier journeys. However as BA and Easyjet have discovered, COVID is still very much a force to be reckoned with when rostering flight duties! The best advice is as ever plan ahead book early get the best prices and don’t forget your travel insurance. 

For more advice on your particular travel plans please contact Veronica on 01488 686858 or or pop in to our office at 19 Hungerford High Street (under the railway bridge).

Hungerford Coin & Stamp Centre

We have never been busier with many people coming in with collections and accumulations for valuation and appraisal. We don’t charge for valuations unless you need a full appraisal in writing for Probate, for example.

With the strengthening gold price we are paying even higher prices – even for items of jewellery that are damaged or broken. We also buy silver, platinum and palladium, and of course, stamp collections.

We always try and conclude the valuation while you are with us.

Open: Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm, Sunday 10am to 2pm.
