There are a couple of factors that affect the cost of sending an international transfer with Ulster Bank.
The first is the exchange rate. You’ll notice that the rate the bank gives you is different from the exchange rate you see quoted on Google. This is because Ulster Bank, like most transfer services, adds a margin on top of the mid-market rate. Compare the rate you’re given with the current mid-market rate to work out the size of the margin.
The second factor is the transaction fee. Ulster Bank doesn’t charge any fees on most standard transfers, but euro transfers to non-SEPA destinations will incur a small fee. And if you want to send an urgent transfer, a much larger transaction fee will apply.
Check out the table below to see real-time exchange rates and fees from a range of money transfer services.
