Have a chat with @Susan from Moneycorp they do a fee free service for Pomsinoz members. You get to speak to a real person rather than a foreign call centre. We moved ours with Moneycorp 


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

I mean I'm splitting hairs but surely the people in the "foreign call centre" are also a "real person"?

I think she also means that it's a real member of Moneycorp's foreign exchange staff.  Whereas though the person in a foreign call centre is a real person, they are not a real foreign exchange person, they're just an operator reading answers off a screen.

Hi everyone ~

Always happy to have a chat and see how we can help: we're all expats who have made the move ourselves and been in the same position exchanging our money, buying/renting homes, schools, families etc. We've also been in the Banking industry for decades.

Our office number is: (Sydney) 0414 838586

You wouldn’t think so, when they read from a script.
TransferWise are great for small quick transactions and when things that don’t go wrong but personally when we moved our money from the sale of the house the only people I trusted it with was Moneycorp
