Sending Money Internationally

Use the fast, easy and secure way to send money internationally – by using a specialist in international transfers you can make large savings that could cover your removal costs.

If you are uprooting and moving to France, or planning a removal to Paris or other French city, you will need to have your money ready for you when you get there. Often, needing to ensure your money reaches its final destination is at the bottom of the to-do list and quite often the last item checked off the list when making that move abroad.

There are a number of UK companies that can assist you when sending money internationally which are specifically designed to make life a whole lot easier. You can pay in sterling (GBP) and conduct an Internet bank transfer. This bank transfer is then converted to the current French currency, which is euros (EUR), within around 2-4 working days. Sending money internationally this way could cost you up to 5% more on the exchange rate than using other means. It could also be less efficient, take longer and incur overseas transfer charges.

If you plan ahead and ensure it is one of the first things ticked off of your list, you will be able to take control and feel at ease.

By using an FCA authorised E-Money institution such as Global Reach, it can make the entire process less stressful, less time consuming and more reliable. Their process is simple, personable and guides you through each step from the beginning to the end of your transfer, and in turn, can help you to save money – which is of high importance during what can be a costly task.

Sending money internationally with Global Reach is the quickest and most efficient option you can choose to help you when sending money internationally, and the Global Reach can facilitate both personal transfers and business transfers.

For personal transfers, you can simply open a personal account. A personal account allows you to transfer money quickly to your destination currency and will also provide you with weekly currency reports so that you can be on top of your transfers. Alongside this they will also provide current exchanged rates so that you know you’re getting the best possible deal.

If you need to transfer money for a small or large business, Global Reach are able to help you transfer money between countries and companies. In order to ensure your money is sent responsibly, the Global Reach use their sister company “Global Reach Partners.

Sending money internationally to friends and family

If you are looking to send money internationally to family or friends that live abroad, you can do it via a simple bank transfer. Transferring money this way will incur a fee, however, if it is a small amount of money i.e. for a birthday or Christmas gift, then this can be the easiest route to take.

If you are looking to send across a large amount of money, and this usually means transfers over £20,000, then bank transfers could charge a considerable fee, especially if you are transferring to a bank account outside of your current banking company. Often family members that live abroad may require money to be regularly sent out to them from their English bank accounts. If this is the same for you and your situation, then you can set up a personal account with Global Reach.

Global Reach is unbeatable when it comes to exchange rates in sending money overseas, therefore, we recommend that you use their services and set up a personal account for regular transfers between family and friends of different countries.
