      I was wondering what the best way of getting my money into a bank account in the UK is in terms of avoiding fees and getting a decent exchange rate?

      How do you guys do it?

      edit: Bank transfer with Neteller is $10 + 2.5% exchange fee from what I can tell. Doesn't sound too great.

      Cheers

      Hi hypertyper,

      I just use my standard debit card, takes money out of and puts money back directly into my bank account.

      Always arrives in £ at exactly the conversation rate advised by Full Tilt without any additional charge, but this might vary depending on which bank you use.

      Best regards,


      Bart

      That sounds pretty good. What bank do you use?

      Moneybookers is a lot cheaper you pay only around $1usd for transaction no matter if its $30usd or even $8,000usd.

      Local bank transfer? Took around 4 days for it to happen for me and no fees since they're deducted from rakeback iirc.

      Have you actually done it though? I'm pretty sure they will charge me somewhere... I'd like to know which bank doesn't charge because I know Lloyds and Natwest charge when I receive money from abroad even within the EU.
