Have 's, Can i send 's back?

I have 500 that I want to put in my bank account back home.

Can i ask the bank to transfer them as pounds, or will they first convert them to francs then back to pounds?

If they do that then i will wait till i am going back to pay them in

thanks

I've got a GBP a/c here that I use for that. There is a charge for each transaction but no conversion.

Wait until you go home, or if you think you might have GBP regularly then set up a GBP account here - you won't be able to pay them in to your normal CHF account here without them charging you a decent percentage in fees.
