Virgin Money is currently boosting its “best price guarantee” on all international money transfers by also offering 3,000 free miles on all transactions over £1,000 in value.
Virgin offers a money transfer service at “great rates”. You can even provide them with a quote from your high street bank within 3 hours, and they’ll beat it.
The 3,000 free miles offer runs until 31 January 2018. You will also (obviously) need to be a member of Virgin Atlantic Flying Club to benefit from the free miles.
Virgin guarantees that its rate will beat high street banks. However, that DOES NOT include the superb TransferWise (whose debit card payment method is tried and tested by me and, in my view, second to none) and Azimo.
Both TransferWise and Azimo charge a small commission, but they also offer the spot rate which generally makes them waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better value than the high street banks.
Indeed, given how dreadful many high street bank exchange rates are, I strongly suggest you get your best Virgin quote, and then compare it to what you’d get with TransferWise and Azimo. I’d value 3,000 Virgin miles at around £30, so you need to factor that in.
