    Transferring Foreign Currency 12th Oct 16 at 4:03 PM
    Hi there, a bit of a random question.
    What's the best/cheapest way of sending Euro (a couple thousand) from Spain to the UK? I don't want it to be converted to British Pounds on route, I want to receive it in the original currency (ie Euro). I thought about setting up a currency account in the UK but this usualy requires settting up a 'business account' with a bank and costs quite a bit. Any tips/suggestions?
    Many thanks!

    Withdraw the money as cash in Euro's.

    If it's in a bank you can use Revolut, costs nothing.
