I'm not sure if I'm in the correct area here but if anyone can help it'll be appreciated.
I work abroad but live in the UK. I'm paid in US Dollars and I'm looking to see how I can minimise my costs when my salary is converted to GBP by my bank. I feel that I'm getting ripped off in two ways, firstly, Barclay's seem to suit themselves what interbank rate I get (it never seems to align with the rate of the moment) and I also get a double whammy with the fees, commision, etc, whatever you want to call it.
If anyone can help me keep more of MY OWN MONEY I'll be grateful.
