Default Sending money from Abu Dhabi to UK

Hi, sorry more questions from me

Whats the best way to send money back home to pay bills etc...

Do you prefer via the banks or companies such as western union (or their UAE equivalent)

I know fees/rates vary but just wanted people to share their experiences and recommendations.

Thanks

There are better options than using your banks or a 'high street' exchange house. Retails banks rarely offer competitive exchange rates and often charge a fee too. If you contact me I will send you details of the service I recommend to my clients. See link below.

Why don't you just post them information here?

OP, you just need a regulated UK-based provider that is authorised by the UK Financial Services Authority. There are plenty which utilise major banks for the transfers.

I use HALO financial services, research them - they are well regarded and the rates are also very favourable. I usually do HALO - HSBC Jersey transfers.

www.torfx.com are also ok
