Looking for the best way to send money from the United Kingdom to family, friends or businesses in Slovakia (or even to your own bank account)? Don’t head straight to your British bank – turn to online money transfer services instead. They nearly always offer better exchange rates and lower fees – which means for the same amount of pounds you send, the recipient will receive more euros
