This offers the opportunity to protect against currency fluctuations when regularly sending money abroad.
The Post Office Overseas Property Money Transfer service is offered with zero per cent commission when making foreign money transfer transactions, avoiding the fees typically charged by high-street banks when sending money abroad. Customers using the Post Office Overseas Property Money Transfer service can also be reimbursed for any overseas bank transfer charges which may be imposed by the destination bank when sending money abroad.

"The Post Office Overseas Property Money Transfer service offers customers the ability to fix at a competitive exchange rate, giving them peace of mind when sending money abroad for up to a year. With 0% commission and our competitive exchange rates we will be saving customers a serious amount of money on overseas bank transfers if they are paying a deposit on a new property."
