CHEAPEST WAY TO TRANSFER MONEY TO UK FROM UAE?
 
Dear all,
I am returning to the UK after five years in the sandpit.
I currently bank with ADCB and want to transfer all my money back to the UK - over 100,000 dirhams.
Can you suggest the best and cheapest firm to do this? ie Western Union.
Also, should the transfer be made in GBP or AED?
Thanks all

Never use your retail bank and you can do better than Western Union too.

Western Union is very pricey and is not suitable for this kind of transfer. It is a sensible way to send small sums to irresponsible offspring who find themselves stranded after a spree. I have done that !
