Re: First Direct Bank

It used to be 10 regardless as you had to call them to do it, then it became free when you could do it directly online, then in the latter months of our time in Turkey the receiving bank (always HSBC) started charging.

Re: First Direct Bank

It is free now if you do it online. I think they still charge if you phone them to do it. I now regularly transfer money from my UK First Direct Account to my HSBC Turkey Account. No fees either end now & money arrives within a day
Previously they charged 25 & you never knew if you were going to be charged the other end
