Transferring Money from Aus to UK

Recommended Posts


We're wanting to transfer funds from our Australian account to the UK as we're in the UK for the foreseeable future - its a decent amount from our house sale, super, savings & final pay - obviously transferring between banks is an option but not a very good rate - just looking for other better and SAFE ways with perhaps better rates

We were very happy with the service we got from Send last year.  The rate was good, no fee and the transfer arrived in our UK bank the same day.  I still have some funds remaining in my Australian bank and am thinking of transferring them soon as the exchange rate is very favourable at the moment.

Wise are good, used them the other way several times.  It is worth ringing them whoever you use to get the best rate on larger amounts.
