Re: Transferring money back to the UK

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I thought it might be better than creating a new one.

I'm looking to regularly (every 3 months) transfer my UK salary to my Swiss account.

Is there anywhere else I should look other than:
transferwise.com
currencyfair.com
ukforex.co.uk

Thanks chaps (and chapettes).

Re: Transferring money back to the UK

I think you got the best options listed there.

I used CurrencyFair myself, but Transferwise is similar. They are both peer to peer services, meaning they allow you to find someone that wants to convert in the opposite direction, mostly cutting out the middle man (banks).
The idea is that both you and the other person get a good rate for exchange.
In CurrencyFair you can specify the rate you want and wait for it to be matched even, although you can also do it instantly which basically matches you with the best offer already available (from the people that want to convert in the opposite direction and have specified a rate and are waiting for it to be matched).

UKforex I don't know.

Cheers, I think I will go for CurrencyFair for my initial transfer as it has the best rates out of the three I'm considering.

I'll keep my options open in 3 months time.
