HL money transfer is a solid option for anyone transferring more than £3,500 (below that, fixed fees will make the transfer necessarily expensive). Hargreaves Lansdown is a well recognised, publicly traded FTSE100 firm, boasting professional staff and overall positive reviews from across the internet. With that being said HL money transfer is not a specialist dedicated specifically for international money transfers like Currencies Direct or Moneycorp (who even took down their travel money business to focus exclusively on international bank transfers). We don’t see any major advantage to using HL Money Transfer over any of its specialist competitors.
