    We're currently wanting to transfer a large amount of money from UK to here in Lanzarote.

    What is the best way? Normal rate we are being offered is about 1.20 Euros and about 1.25 for over £100k.

    Is there another way that we can get any better rate ?

    We're currently with Santander and wondering about opening a Santander a/c here as well.

    All advice gratefully received as the Euro is dropping rapidly and we want to move quickly.

    Many thanks in advance

    Try currency fair. Best rate for us in France!

    I use TransferWise but not on very large sums. Very good rate and extremely low fees.

    Hi Yorick,
    Whatever way you do it, I hope you get a rate you're happy with.
    The 'Brexit' debate has hit the £ :V: € pretty hard and I don't see it getting better this side of 23rd June.

    We used Currency Solutions to buy our van in Belgium.

    Currency Fair... once you have set up your Euro bank account...

    If I recommend you I win Brownie points!
