Can any recommend where to get the best exchane rates:?:
Depends on how much / frequency.
I assume you are looking to move funds for a purchase or for ongoing ownership costs etc.
Either way, you really need to be looking at the FX traders. I personally would recommend Currencies Direct in London who have undertaken various “spot deals” for me and also make me two trades/transfers from the UK each month.
A lot of what they do can be commission free, transfer charge free and receiving bank commission free. But you need to check this all through dependant on the deal.
