Getting money out of UK account when we do our reccie?

    Recommended Posts

    Hi to all, can someone point me to the correct thread or give me some advice please?.....

    We are doing a reccie in April next year and some money is due to be credited to our account whilst we are over in Oz. Now what Im wanting to know is how do we get to this money? Do we need to topen an Australian bank account first before we come out so that we can transfer it from our UK account? If so, how do we do this-do I do it via our Aus bank who will get it transferred over or do I do it via our UK bank (natwest)............some financial advice needed pretty please cos Im rather oblivious when it comes to this sort of thing.

    Cheers guys

    HiWhen we did our reccie we opened an account with commonwealth bank in Glenelg with $50. Then got back to UK and transferred what we needed into the account. When u transfer u need to do it from the bank where the money is coming from. Saying that it is normal about 25 gbp for the transfer and you get a poor exchange rate. We used an fx broker (which is free if transferring more than $5k and u call them to get a rate and then transfer the money from ur account to theirs (they banked with Barclays) and they forward it to your account in aus.
