Please can anyone help me? I would like to set up a savings account in Adelaide, so when we arrive in Adelaide, we have some funds readily available. In addition this will help us save up instead of it lying dormant in our English bank account and tempting us to spend it. Ideally I would like to set up a weekly/monthly standing order from my Current Halifax Bank Account to a suitable bank account in Adelaide.
I have no idea what happends about the exchange rate or if there any charges for doing this and what these charges are. I would like to transfer about £200 per week and/or maybe £800 per month, which ever is best.
I would like to know who are the best people to arrange this?
Which Bank service do I use?
Which is best: Hifx, Moneycorp, Ozforex, Westpack, Tranzers, Anz, National Australia Bank (NAB), Ukforex,
