*Every month we check our exchange rates against high street banks. These quotes were obtained from seven high street banks on 1 October 2019 for a transfer of £20,000 to euros. Currency markets move constantly so the rate you’ll receive will be different for this example. We make a small charge for low value transactions.

The interbank rate is the rate that banks and large institutions buy and sell to each other and is the rate you’d see quoted in the news. Ours is taken from Proquote.
Most providers make money by adjusting the interbank rate and offering you a less favourable rate. This is why the exchange rate offered is less than the interbank rate.
