How To Get The Best Deal When You Send Money To France

Planning to relocate to France? Then one of the most important things is to get the best deal on foreign exchange before you go. This after all can mean thousands of euros won or lost depending on the exchange rate!

To get the best deal when you transfer money to France then, be sure to take into account the following things:

  1. Don’t use the banks. Banks are non-specialists in foreign exchange, and so rarely offer the best rate.

  1. Look for a specialist currency broker. Brokers help people send money abroad on a daily basis, and so are much more likely to offer a good deal.

  1. Plan the transfer in advance. Research sending your funds as far in advance as possible, so that you’re not caught with a bad rate once the deadline arrives.

  1. Watch out for commission. You shouldn’t have to pay extra fees, so make sure you deal with a company that charges 0% commission.

  1. Receive confirmation. Ask your broker for confirmation that the transfer has succeeded. This gives you peace of mind.
