If you’re buying a property, use a currency specialist instead of your bank.
They generally provide better exchange rates and can lock in a good rate for you.
Also, if you are newbie to sending money overseas, they’ll hold your hand through it all.
When I bought my place, I locked in the rate for the balance, when I paid the deposit. They helped me avoided losing £17k when the rates dropped at time the balance was due.
Loads of companies out there to choose from, I used these guys http://www.hawkfx.com. Great service, awesome rates, and proactively helped me to get the maximum amount of euros for pounds.
