Other than the obvious bank funds transfer, does anyone transfer funds through one of the online service? An one better than another?

Used transferwise (now just wise) for a while, transfers were cheap and went ok :)





Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

I use currency fair. It depends how much you want to transfer as to the best option.

When we emigrated to NZ back in 2017 I used TorFX. They offered really competitive FX rates at the time, no transfer fees and a dedicated account manager who worked to get the best FX rate possible. Saved us tens of thousands of dollars over a straight bank transfer.

Wise (formerly Transferwise) has been excellent. Fast with great exchange rates and minimal fees.

 

I've managed to move money from the UK to NZ faster than a NZ -> NZ Bank transfer at times.

Thank you for all the suggestions. In the end I used Wise it was as suggested reasonable easy to set up and once done very easy to use.
