Examples of regular payments
Two of the most common uses for regular overseas payments are pension transfers and mortgage payments, examples:
Mr Jones lives in Spain, but his pension is paid into his UK sterling account monthly. He used to have to arrange a monthly transfer through his bank, accepting uncompetitive exchange rates and a £30 transfer fee. Then he set up a Regular Overseas Payments plan. By completing a standing order form, his pension is now transferred direct from his UK account to his choice money transfer provider, who convert it into euros at a better exchange rate, and send it to his French account free of charge. "Over the last year, I've saved £360 just on transfer fees alone..... and I've also saved a lot of time and hassle!"
Sarah lives and works in the US, and has a holiday home near Mallorca in Spain. She took out a euro mortgage to buy the property, and pays euro installments each month. A regular overseas payment plan was the perfect way to make sure she didn't miss a mortgage payment, as well as offering significant savings on each transfer. Her money transfer provider can take her sterling payment by debit card on the same day each month, and transfer the euros straight to her Spanish account. There are no fees, and the exchange rate is up to 5% better than the bank's.
Pay less, receive more, its that simple.
On Small amounts a bank will normally use a tourist rate, this is quite similar to the forex rate you would receive when purchasing your travel money at a bureau de change. A money transfer provider will offer commercial foreign exchange rates on all regular money transfers overseas, giving you more and costing you less.
