*Note: A lower FX Rate will give a better exchange rate when transferring money to/from euro. The recommended foreign exchange companies listed on our website can save you money and time with your international currency transfer requirements.
Making a transfer to or from the euro using a bank service could potentially lose you thousands of pounds due to the poor FX margin rate offered. Private currency brokers offer a much more competitive rate of exchange. Example: Currency broker TorFX are one of the UK’s leading and largest foreign currency exchange specialists assisting private individuals and businesses with their foreign currency transfers to and from most countries worldwide.
