How to wire money to the United Kingdom with Xoom
If you're living abroad but your family is back in the United Kingdom, you may have to wire money back-and-forth while you're apart. With Xoom, this process is simplified so that sending money online is a snap.
Xoom allows you to transfer money via your computer directly into your recipient's bank account. These transactions are processed in less than an hour to most banks in the United Kingdom.
If you're working with Santander, Bank of Scotland, Barclays, Clydesdale, Co-Operative Bank, Coutts, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds TSB, Natwest Bank, Northern Bank, Northern Rock, Royal Bank of Scotland, Smile, Ulster Bank or Yorkshire Bank, you can expect the funds to reach your recipient in less than an hour. If you wire money after 11 P.M. GMT, they should be there by 2 A.M. GMT.
If you wire money to any other bank in the U.K., the funds will be available in two business days.
Xoom also makes it easy to see the exchange rates when you send money, so you can know exactly how much you're sending. Plus, you won't be charged an additional fee by the receiving bank.
