I have used HIFX several times but would recommend Tranzfers/Ozforex: I use OzForex monthly.

Thay were fine at the moving money side but, like a lot of others, I got fed up with them phoning me all the time to say that "now's the time to exchange".

OzForex just get on with what you tell them to do, no off-the-back-of-a-lorry stuff.

I use HIFX for large amounts. They allow you to place a limit order which will only go ahead once the rate reaches a set level.

For small amounts I use a Nationwide ATM card, the exchange rate is the Visa wholesale rate minus 1%, which is competitive with broker rates.

Question Re: Moneycorp or Hifx? - what are current rates

Hi,

Looks like rate is improving for anyone transferring $ back to GBP at the moment.

I have been using Ozforex as well (currently offering 0.6044 (1.6545) at 8:24AM) would be interested in knowing what the others are offering. Can't be bothered to sign up with each one though - does anyone have any figures currently?

Thanks!

We use Ozforex. Always found them to be excellent to deal with. It's very easy and I'll be using them again very soon!

Euro? Well, it's only a very small currency!

Actually I just logged into my Ozforex account and it does have the Euro as an option.

I emailed them and they said they don't trade in Euros. We have funds that we need to transfer from Euro to AUS$. They said try Moneycorp
Maybe they don't like the Irish

I have account with all of them, HIFX, ozforex and moneycorp. When I wanted to send money, I usually compare the rate, and every time, Ozforex is slightly better. They gave me two free transfer as well.
