quoted 50

I was quoted 50 Euros by a travel agent, I've been told by others that it should cost a lot more for the letter of invite. Im confused. Not sure whether to go with the one I have already or go elsewhere. Who has actually received LOI + Visa at Istanbul or Europe somewhere?

The second link on google is only 30 euro and looks legit. Free free to test it for me.

I got my LOI through Stantours. It cost about £40 from what I remember. David is very helpful and can answer any of your questions. It took about 2 weeks to come through with no problems.

I collected in Istanbul, again no real problems. There was a 3 day processing time but the cost was €180. ouch.

The cheaper ones tend to take longer. I found this out when I was panicing in Pakistan as my visa was expiring and i had to leave but I didn't want to spend 100$ on the number. So I also applied for another number where you can pay once you arrive in Iran. About 4 months too late I received the number... in that time I used the expensive one and had traveled through Iran.

Just be careful - I meet a girl at the embassy who used a doggy one and kept her money and did nothing for the number. I would recommend using a company someone has used before.
