Saving Money on the Move Abroad

Feb 26. 2020

When it comes to moving from one country to another, there is a substantial list of things on the to-do list. From processing visa applications, dealing with the sale of your property, packing and making arrangements with a removals company; there’s a lot to factor in.

One element of the process which is important to research and plan ahead is the transfer of money overseas. It is worth noting that banks can charge up to 5% in fees during an international money transfer. Currencies Direct, on the other hand don’t charge transfer fees on transactions over £5,000 and ‘bank-beating’ exchange rates. They were the UK’s first independent foreign exchange provider and so have an unrivalled level of experience in the areas of overseas property and emigration to provide what is essentially a hassle-free service. It is well worth looking into these services and considering the money that could be saved and used elsewhere in the process of relocating.

Even for regular transfers, if you are for example receiving regular payments in the form of pensions, mortgages, maintenance or salaries etc, speak to Currencies Direct about arranging an overseas regular transfer plan that will take advantage of their rates and services as with your main transaction.

Our international moving webpage contains a host of information on the entire process of moving internationally. Our international moving experts are also on hand to give advice on everything from the shipping process, the required documentation, storage and bespoke crating to currency providers, and pet shipping. Our services are global and our experience is vast; we can move to anywhere in the world.

If you would like to speak to one of our advisors about arranging you upcoming move and the various aspects of the moving process, contact our international department at Burke Bros on 01902 714555 or email sales@burkebros.co.uk and we’d be happy to help.
