You can use an international money transfer service to send money to Spain, and it could save you money compared to using your bank.

Banks charge a SWIFT transfer fee, which costs around 20. However, the fee is usually a lot lower using a money transfer service.

To find the best money transfer deal, you need to look at:

  • The transfer fee: This is the cost of making a single transfer to Spain. Shop around as some companies have no transfer fee, but others charge up to 7.

  • The exchange rate: This tells you how many euros you get in exchange for each pound you send, for example, an exchange rate of 1.2 will turn 1 into €1.20.

When comparing deals, write down how much it costs to send the euros you want to Spain, including transfer fees, then choose the cheapest.

What are single and regular payments?

Single payments let you send one off transfers, but regular payments let you set up several money transfers over a set term, such as 6 months.

A regular payment could let you use the same exchange rate for each transfer you make over a set term. This means you know the cost of each transfer in advance.

Use this comparison to find companies that let you arrange regular money transfers to Spain, single transfers or both.
