Mystery shopper finds currency dealers better than UK Banks
A recent mystery-shopping exercise conducted by  Savills Private Finance, a mortgage broker, found that somebody wanting to transfer the equivalent of €100,000 through Nat West, at a rate of €1.4120, would need £70,822. If they had gone to Moneycorp or Currencies Direct, both foreign-exchange brokers, they would have got a rate of €1.4753, costing them £67,783 — £3,039 cheaper.
In addition to the British bank’s charges, you may face further fees from the recipient bank. Forex specialists tend to absorb these costs. Moneycorp charges £15 on transfers but it covers any charges levied by the recipient bank and the fee is negotiable on large amounts.
