Re: Money exchange,

I once paid in GBP into my UBS CHF account.
That included some Scottish notes which normally causes confusion.
I guess CS probably do the same.

Unless you have 1000s, then the rate will be close enough wherever you go.

UBS allows you to send money abroad using online banking, or at the Bancomat Plus machine.
It costs 5 or 10 CHF - not bad considering to send cash here from the UK costs GBP 20+.

Again, I guess CS and PostFinance are the same.

You don't need to use any special agencies, unless you're a drug dealer or diamond smuggler, or you want to send to the US (coz they're crap banks by all accounts...)
