How to beat the banks
When planning an overseas wedding most people choose banks when transferring cash. And why not? It’s a safe, traditional route – and far easier than
taking currency with you, which could be stolen or mislaid. But the truth is you might not be getting the best return on your time or your money.
How you could lose out
Unfortunately, there’s plenty that could go wrong if you rely on banks to transfer your cash abroad:
Sky-high charges for moving your
money can eat into your available cash. Transfer fees of between £17 - £30 each
time can soon build up– and make even relatively small transfers expensive.
Poor exchange rates from UK-based or foreign banks can slash your funds at a
stroke with margins as high as 5%.
Exchange rates fluctuate – which means
the cost may increase in the time between agreeing to all the wedding
particulars and coming to pay for everything.
Arranging a transfer with
your bank on the phone or at a branch, can be time-consuming and a lot of
hassle. Especially when your to-do list is already full of essential wedding
Delays can happen – which could mean missing out on your dream
venue, or cause unnecessary stress with contractors leading up to your big day.

Case study: Sun, sea and a truly special day
Nick and Sarah Myerson met in their twenties while out clubbing in Ibiza. So when the time came for them to tie the knot it was natural they wanted to
spend their big day back in the Balearics.
The wedding was a dream to organise apart from one thing – securing the caterers and the venue overseas. When the couple looked at how much the banks
were charging, they realised that they might have to scale back. That’s where we came in. Sarah found us on the internet and quickly saw how we could
take the worry and expense out of making payments abroad.
After searching through the carefully selected currency brokers on our site they decided to go with
one of them.
Not only did they save over £600 on the cost of sending various transfers totalling €18,000 to Ibiza – they also avoided paying the £30
transfer fee a bank would normally charge. They were also able to remove the
risk of currency fluctuations
the best Euro exchange rate against future
payments a couple of months ahead. This was news worth celebrating. And it meant that the couple could boost their budget to include the finishing
touches that transform a wedding into something truly magical.

With the possible exception of losing your passport, the one thing that every traveller fears most is misplacing their stash of pounds or local currency. Having carefully weighed up the exchange rates before heading to the airport and handing over our hard-earned in exchange for a fistful of what looks suspiciously like Monopoly money to the untrained eye, we have to guard these notes carefully, lest we end up paying the unwelcome charges that accompany cash withdrawals overseas.
