Euro and UK pound exchange rates for OFX versus high street bank rates, banks typically apply an exchange rate margin of somewhere between 2 and 6 percent on transactions. This means that if you were to make a bank transfer overseas to or from euros using a standard bank service, then you could potentially lose thousands of pounds due to the poor FX margin rate offered by banks.
