Re: What is the cheapest way to transfer money from UK to Swiss bank account?

Just pay an English cheque into your Swiss account - costs about 10 chf
... and you'll be slapped with the least advantageous exchange rate possible. The difference is often at least 1% -- so to exchange say 10,000 (around CHF 16,000), you may receive at least CHF 170 less if you let your Swiss bank do the conversion.

The fee they charge is the very least of your worries when converting currencies!
