Currently looking at using https://transferwise.com/en
Done the reading and all seems positive but any actual experience would be appreciated to put mind at rest!!
we use currencyUK to do a monthly transfer as well as one off transfers (upto around 40k when we were buying our house). Never had a problem.
I have used a broker in Marlow called Pure FX who have never let me down.
We use Paypal
We have a UK bank account with a Paypal account and a French bank account with a French Paypal account. Send over all the monies we ever need between the two accounts, can do it in less than 5 minutes, from my account to paypal, to French paypal, to my french account, all sorted! Its exchange rate is always better than the currency exchange places like Tesco.
We used to get charged £25 a time to get Santander to send money over for us!
I have used HiFX for several years now. Far better rates than banks or anyone else I've found. Easy to set up and now fully automated.
Thanks anyone specifically used transfer wise??
From the makers of payapl so looks decent....
No in answer to your question .... I use Moneycorp
I have UK and French HSBC accounts. Free online transfers between the two.
Azimo - very low cost, but not sure of the rates. Haven't used it, but I've met the bloke behind it a few times and he's pretty cool - on a mission to bring down rip-off merchants in finance.
Have you tried your bank ? I've worked abroad frequently so always chose banks good at international transfers (like HSBC). Otherwise I had an HiFX account for a while, was good for transfers of £25k+ but I closed it when they said £2k was too small for them.
I've used them several times no problems, IIRC you can go through quidco to get some decent cashback
PePPeR.. would you mind getting in touch about your post re - central heating ?
would really like a chat, just seen your post, but you don;t have many details in profile,.
(sorry this isn't to do with post)
Hosepipe, I've tried emailing you through your website, but it bounced back.
Oh and back on the subject of FE brokers.... Transfer Wise were very very efficient. Highly recommended.... Now just have to await the frame....
Ignore.... double post
