Bank transfer. The charge for doing this isn't too large (�7-10
typically) but you might get hit on the exchange rate- typically around
1%. If it's a large amount, you might get a better deal- I've rarely
transferred money out of the UK (or into it) in anything larger than 4
digit amounts.

Of course you've got to be most concerned about the change - look
