Ways to transfer your money

travel insurance for the UK
You will have to transfer your money over to a UK Bank account if you are planning on living in London, as it will save you a lot in ATM fees and transfer costs.

It can be done before you leave home if you have set up a UK account via HSBC, NAB and a few others and is a nesseccity if you are going to be working in the UK as they predominately only pay you into a UK account.

There are plenty of companies to choose from, but make sure you get one with low fees, ability ot lock in an exchange rate, are secure and have offices in both you home country and the UK for security.

We also offer a FREE transfer via Tranzfers and 1st Contact, so keep that in mind too.



If you want to stop worrying about the money you sent to the other side of the world, then you have to try Xoom. This is a company which offers the service of transferring or sending money worldwide through computers that are internet-enabled. With Xoom, I was able to send funds to my family and friends in an instant with no hassles.

Xoom is currently active in more than thirty countries like Canada, Nicaragua, Panama, Philippines, Spain, Uruguay and Australia.

Tranzfers / Ozforex Review

Transferring funds can be expensive using the major banks. Using a great new service called TRANZFERS you can send money faster and for a lot less. Their fee is a maximum of 15AUD, they guarantee no receiving bank fees and their rates are much better. Best of all you can do it all on the net - so no more bank queues and forms!

Choosing the best way to take your money to the UK can often be a daunting and confusing experience. Often it can be tricky to understand the fees and charges involved, making it difficult to decide which option best suits your needs.

Not so long ago, I had reason to require money transfer services. A relative of mine suggested I try Lccmt and I must admit I was pleasantly surprised. The first thing that impressed me was the courteousness and professionalism of the staff I dealt with. Sure, I expected good service, but what I received went well beyond that.

I had gone to the office near me to pick up some cash being sent to me by a friend.
