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

Sarah from Spartan FX had said something about how you could ‘pay the pool man’ using them. When I asked how this worked Neil from Spartan FX said they didn’t normally change money of a value under £3000. Perhaps I have misunderstood something. 
I used them for a large transfer anyway but am sticking to Wise for smaller amounts as their rates as a different kind of animal tend to be the highest certainly I could find.

Actually just a heads up transferring money from UK banks to FX dealers in largish amounts triggered my bank’s fraud system every.single.time so be aware it is worth allowing time to go through processes with the bank of going the FX route was my take on it.
