Changing Money
 
I have just received my student visa and have opened a bank account at ANZ. I am looking to transfer about £8,000 to this account and, having enquired in HSBC, it seems it could be a costly business! I've had a look at the posts on this forum about the company Halewood and have spoken to them today. They appear to be a better option than transferring through the bank but I'm wondering whether this is more geared towards people transferring large amounts of cash than for someone in my position?? Can anybody advise whether they would be the best option or whether I should stick with HSBC?

Any help greatly appreciated....

Hi Lilly,

Another option for you would be to call currencies direct 020 78130332 ask to speak to Nathan. I found them much more helpfull than Halewood Int.

Hope this helps

I am going to my bank (RBOS) when the exchange rate is favourable, and paying a tenner to get them to make an international bankers cheque, then putting this cheque into my Australian bank account. I thought that was easy but probably not, probably screw me with exchange crap rates.
