London, UK (PRWeb UK) February 7, 2010
Recent research reveals that as many as 6.5 million people across the UK dream of buying a second home abroad.
The number of people setting their sights on second homes abroad highlights the need for people to have easy access to foreign money transfers, advises the Post Office.
Buying a second home in another country can require a great deal of organisation, not least ensuring that practicalities are in place such as regular foreign money transfers for utility bills and mortgage payments. The Post Office's - Overseas Property Money Transfers - takes the stress out of international bank transfers making it easier and cheaper to pay bills abroad.
For example, many UK high-street banks typically charge commission fees when sending money abroad, but the Post Office's Overseas Property Money Transfer service enables customers to make international bank transfers with zero per cent commission.
Customers using the Post Office service for foreign money transfers will also be reimbursed for any charges that the destination bank may impose on the international bank transfer. In addition, the Post Office service offers competitive exchange rates on overseas bank transfers.
In order to make the prospect of sending money abroad less daunting, customer can access the Post Office Overseas Property Money Transfer online or via phone for those who require further guidance throughout the process of making foreign money transfers.
