Alternative to normal bank transfer
Save €€€ when you buy a home in Spain
When buying a property in Spain, its usually purchased in Euros. If you’re buying with a different currency (e.g. Pounds) then you’ll need to make a transfer of your funds to Euros when you complete. Transferring the money through your existing bank often incurs excessive fees and exchange rates.
When transferring 500 Euros or more to foreign bank accounts for any purpose, it is advisable to deal with a company who specialize in money transfers in order to obtain the best exchange rate, not the tourist rate. When sending money, always allow more than enough time for your funds to arrive in the receiver’s account.
