we did ours through HIFX and if you are sending a big amount you get a better rate and without charges so worth contacting the UK office. we now transfer back to the UK through the AUS office and have locked in a rate!!!!

We found it cheaper to just use our credit card for as much as possible when we did our rekkie, but that was 4 years ago now. At that time the exchange rate used and charges on credit card worked out a better deal than changing the cash. You only really get better exchange rates with firms like HIFX and Ozforex if changing large amounts of money.

Never had a problem with HIFX but you do have to understand the procedure and be well organized.
