Funding an overseas trip

Discussion in 'Retirement' started by Christel, Dec 24, 2011.

  1. As I am lucky enough to be spending a month in South Africa soon to visit my sister I am wondering whether
    It is worth sending money by SWIFT in advance to her bank account from mine (Nationwide which seems quite pricy) or using another agency such as Forex which looks cheaper.
    Has anyone done this?
    In the past I have used my Nationwide debit card at her local bank to make daily withdrawals but now Nwide have introduced charges for this so it also looks expensive.
     
  2. Thanks Midgey my sister was not keen on the SWIFT due to high charges her end- now looking at currency card prepaid seen on that site
