Re: Sending money from Switzerland to UK

Whether or not there are fees, the bank will take a big chunk when changing the CHF you are sending into GBP at the other end.

The best was to avoid this is by using a dedicated ForEx service such as the one mentioned above from xe.com. The one I have used is the FX Global Transfer service from www.oanda.com. Whilst this takes a little time to set up and understand, if you are sending a large amount or will be repeatedly sending money then it is well worth the extra hassle.
