As the title say's.....
Any recommendations for transferring a large amount to a French bank
Used these to buy property in Spain,,
Seem as good as anyone else.. Never any issues.
Did a one off big payment and then a few smaller ones over past 3 years..
NOTE... Watch for hidden charges from the overseas end.. Worldwide dont charge anything but my robbing Spanish bank actually takes a fee for putting cash in. !! grr
If you want a direct email then PM me..
Is it your bank in France?
If you have a Uk bank account and a French one, I strongly recommend you check out Currency Fair...
I Transfer money regularly to my bank in Berlin using
I cannot find anyone to touch them and have been using them for around 18 months now.
We have been using Currency Solutions for some years now - always excellent rates, no charges, very quick (takes about 2 minutes excluding the niceties).
Never charged by Credit Agricole, but do get an email confirming funds arrived.

I use thomasexchange.co.uk , check out their website. Think they charge £12 for the transaction, and their FX rates are pretty unbeatable. Also https://www.bestforeignexchange.com Are very good for FX. Both these are based in Central London.
I have used Baydonhill for the last 10 years. Used the bank 11 years ago to buy the house but wish I had known about currency exchange then !
You could go and spend it all at BHS and it will be transferred to Monaco lickety-spit
I used easyfx on Eddie's (Judgementals ) recommendation, never take the first rate they offer or the online rate phone up and haggle. Rates vary between companies on different days so worth shopping around just make sure you use a regulated company.
Hi all. We ended up using currenciesdirect, they made me feel at ease and from transferring my money to them and the funds clearing for our motorhome being ready for collection took less then two days.
And they saved us a tidy little some over my bank

I used these and was well pleased!! Try them for a quote, and let me know what you think
I use these to give me the 'proper' currency prices and they do offer a currency transfer service.
Another vote for
Used https://transferwise.com/ for the first time recently to transfer some $$s to USA. Only cost £8 and some pence and transfer completed in less than 24 hours ( though can take longer)
Have used them in the past for small amounts would not use them now, their rates are not competitive for Euro, they are North American based and not members of FCA so your money is not protected, remember what happened to Crown thousands of people lost loads of money when they went down.
