    Morning Joan, we use Currency Fair for all our transfers.  Have a monthly sto with them and used them for years.  Never had a problem & believe their rates are good.  Good luck with your move.

    Use an currency exchange company, there’s plenty to choose from. I favour HiFx, mostly because 15 years ago there wasn’t so much choice and I’m too idle to investigate others.

    I’ve always been put for off by all the over the top marketing by these money transfer companies which frankly makes them all look a bit dodgy.

    Can someone explain the advantages over a bank transfer from my UK bank account to my bank account in France? I’m assuming that the exchange rate is better but how much better? I need to transfer about €50000 for a house purchase & if I’m going to save €1000 I would be interested but if it’s only €100 I would rather trust Barclays & Credit Agricole.

    I use Transferwise too. Advantages over a bank transfer is that companies like transfer wise can offer a much better rate, do it faster and charge less commission. On 50K, you could be saving a small fortune.

    As of todays rate, €50K with transfer wise will get you £44,125.45

    Average bank transfer rates today will get you around £42,600
