Case Study:

Having just moved from New Zealand to the UK, Margaret wanted to transfer the proceeds from the sale of her house in NZ which she sold for NZD $590,000 to her British bank account. Margaret called her NZ bank and was offered a GBP/NZD rate of 1.8206 (inverse = 0.5493) meaning she would receive £324,087. The bank also wanted to charge a NZD$50 fee (GBP £30).

Margaret then called UKForex and asked for a rate for her to sell $590,000 in exchange for British Pounds. UKForex provided access to the best available rate of 1.7880 (inverse = 0.5593), with no fees or hidden costs. Margaret confirmed the transaction online and received £329,987.

Margaret saves:
GBP£5,900 on the rate
GBP£30 on the fee
