    My father who lives in France is going to send me 400 euros for my birthday.
    What is the best and cheapest way for him and me to do this?
    Thank you

    I second the TransferWise suggestion. There are two options - either he signs up to TransferWise and sends the money to your UK account using it, or you sign up to TransferWise, open one of their "borderless" accounts, and give him the Euro account details - then he can just do a normal transfer to that account.
    Let's settle this like gentlemen: armed with heavy sticks

    And you're Peter Duncan; I gave you fair warning
