There are usually several options when sending money to Europe:
Standard transfer: This takes between two and five working days.
Same day transfer: This gets your money to your chosen destination within 24 hours after you send it. This usually comes with a fee, which varies by company.
Regular payment facility: This could offer you a better rate, but you usually have to send a minimum amount each month to qualify, such as £500.
Here are some ways to help get you the best money transfer deal:
Get as many quotes as possible: The more you get, the better the chance of finding the best rate available for the amount you want to send.
Ask how much you need to send to get a better exchange rate: For example, some companies offer better rates for transfers over £5,000.
Consider companies that charge transfer fees: They may offer you a better exchange rate compared to free transfer companies.
