I want to pay for my UK numerplates but my bank seems to be screwing me on the transfer charge. Is their another way to transfer funds to a UK bank account?

Seems they aren't screwing my using a transfer charge, it's all the rate.

Transfer Fee 0.00 AUD
Exchange Rate 1 AUD = 0.4737 GBP

What rate can you get?

I guess the only way to save over a bank transfer is to set up a forex account which is a bit of business for a single transaction.

Headline rate right now is $AU1.00=GBP0.50
I would expect to cop 3%, so $1.00=GBP0.485 + $25.00 for the TT
So...... it depends on the rate on Monday and how much you are transferring


Having said that, our online rate on Friday am was 0.463

Banks screw you massively on the transaction so worth setting up. I use currencyfair which I find better than OFX.

You should make it warm, and has to be consumed before 11pm so it's in tune with the transaction.
C'mon, do it!
