As UK banks seem to practice daylight robbery when it comes to transferring money from or to the Euro zone I now do any such transfer through the fxfirm as even on small amounts they still offer a reasonable rate and don't charge a huge fee for one tiny transfer.
Also, unlike UK high street banks which in my experience will get you to fill in a comprehensive set of lengthy forms, generally seem to be stuck in the 19th century and treat a simple transfer to Germany the same as sending money to Papua New Guinea by carrier pigeon, the fxfirm operates in the 21st century with online bank transfers. Oh, and they are very quick to transfer the money on to the recipient, they don't play with it for 4 days!
I will happily recommend the fxfirm to anyone who needs to do bank transfers to other countries.
