just in case this paypal dsnt work out...open a Bank acc in nationalwide in the uk and thy offer withdrawing money without charging fees and you can tell them you want you limmit to be higher then 200 pounds ie up to 5000 pounds
I have a UK Nationwide account. They don't charge for withdrawing money via debit cards overseas but they do charge for transfers. I use the internet banking option and the "SWIFT" fee is 20 (no matter what the amount you transfer). The swiss banks do sometimes add an admin fee later but this is usually only a few pounds. If you submit the form during before 1pm then the transfer usually comes through the next day - but sometimes takes two days.

Can you pay your rent via credit card, then you don't need to transfer the money out of the UK.
