Hello everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying your Sunday in Portugal. Raining in London and I love it. 

I hope someone can give me some good advice on rates transferring a few Sterling Pounds into Euros to a Spanish bank. At the moment I haven't got a Portuguese account yet. Thank you. 

Wish you all a wonderful Sunday in Portugal surrounded by family/friends or just on your own with a nice glass of red Portuguese wine. I am enjoying my lazy-busy Sunday with a glass of good Italian wine. 

Lots of good & positive vibes. 

Thanking you all in advance for your replies.

Karin

Hi there. I have found Wise (previously Transferwise) offer the best and most transparent rates.

Generally I agree with @aspidistra. However, it depends how you define 'small' amounts. For amounts >£250 (approx) WISE wins but for smaller amounts Azimo does.

We have used Azimo for many years as we tend to drip feed our Pt acount. For larger amounts we look at the 'market' to see who is best at the time.
Sent you a PM.

We have only moved money to PT but Spartan FX were transparent in there dealings and got the best rate  They go the extra mile to be helpful. Small company with little overheads but fully secure.

@aspidistra no minimum transfer from Spartan. I used them to transfer money for a small holiday and way less than that.

The team at Expats Portugal are please to announce that we have nominated Spartan FX as our offical partner and preferred money exchange company because of the amazing reviews and feedback we are getting from our community.

Both Sarah and Ben from Spartan have also been kind enough to donate their time to Good Morning Portugal as well as our webinars to share valuable information about sending money abroad with our audience.

Thank you
