relocate to Zurich- how to transfer bank account?

Hi everybody, I am moving to Zurich from England in Sept. I have no idea how I am going to transfer all my money from the UK bank account to Switzerland with minimum charges.

Any advice will be highly appreciated.

Re: relocate to Zurich- how to transfer bank account?

Do a normal Swift transfer...probably the cheapest way to do it.

If you are going to earn in Switzerland (and expect to get paid in the next couple of weeks), just use your UK bank card to take a large sum of cash (that will keep you going for a couple of weeks until you get paid in Switzerland). This way you will not end up converting your GBP to CHF at the same time (we have seen better exchange rates).

I would worry more about the exchange rate that the charge for the transfer.
