Cheapest Way to Send Money to English Account

I have just opened a post finance account today so I don^'t have the paperwork. As I have opened a debit account only I guess it will be a cash card and not one that I can use to make online purchases etc
Ideally I want to send a portion of my salary to my English account every month or two and I was wondering how I can get the best exchange rate.

Re: Cheapest Way to Send Money to English Account

I'm sure PostFinance will allow you to do it although I'm not sure of the costs involved. Other than that you can use a Forex service like HiFX, XE.com, Oanda etc.

I have personally used HiFX to transfer GBP into CHF but the concept in the same just the reverse.

Hope this helps
