Expat relocations – the money question

In my work I focus on the emotional aspects of a move, but we all know that there are lots of practical things to organise as well. In order to have a really good move, you want to ensure you have sufficient funds/savings with you to make sure you get a good start in the new place. Many expats use their bank to transfer money to or from their new home country, but this is often not the best alternative as both fees and exchange rates eats up more than you think of your savings.

Thanks why I’ve collaborated with OFX to get a really good deal on international money transfers globally for all my readers.
