- Which Forex Company Do People use
Ive been a transferwise user for 4 yrs now. Excellent platform. Brilliantly simple as a regular user. Bang on the mid market rates (can’t get better) with very very low fees. Less than 0.5% to change £1k into € or CA$
If you use my link, you get zero fee on £500 transfer.

Very good phone app too. I also have 2x free accounts with them. One in GBP another in EUR so can hold funds there before changing at the best rate and sending out to my other accounts in France or UK.Posted 3 weeks agojuliansSubscriber
Stick it in a machine, get the best rate available anywhere, zero transfer fee.
Transfer money in to pay it off, no interest.
Afaik the best and cheapest way of getting cash
hmmm,barclaycard say there is a 2,99% charge for each withdrawal, that doesnt sound too good to mePosted 3 weeks ago
Dickyboy, yes transferwise is fine for large sums. Your limit is more likely to be at your bank end so you may need to do a couple of tranches. I’ve used it to acquire a couple of properties with transfers to theNotary’s account in France. As usual always best to check destination with a £1 transfer first.Posted 3 weeks agosweaman2Member
As per Stoner you might need to do multiple transfers (Barclays has or had a 10K per day limit) into a holding account with the FX company who will then transfer it all over in one go. Despite doing tests there’s still a bit of sweating between the money leaving my UK account and it appearing in my CDN account.Posted 3 weeks ago
Transferwise worked well for me (aside from my bank freezing my account due to suspicious activity) my sister set up a transferwise account and I was able to pay direct into that, whilst I set up a tf account which paid direct into my brothers euro bank, think it was under £100 to transfer £25k. Thanks all.Posted 5 days ago
