    I used Transfer Wise to do a bank payment to Germany. Very reasonable fee & they do not pork you on exchange rate. Worth a look.

    Nab charges $35 at the branch or you can do it online for $22, just make sure you have every detail correct when doing it yourself

    Hi Graeme

    2 issues here -
    1. The exchange rate you get
    2. The charges incurred

    On 1. you need to look at what rate you are offered - typically a couple of cents less that the headline rate. If you can do a deal with a forex trader, that should reduce to 0.5 cents
    On 2. Banks typically charge $20-$40. Forex traders typically don't.

    Obviously it depends on how much you are sending as to whether it is worth exploring the market

    I use Firma - https://firmafx.com.au/
