 I used to send money from my UK Halifax current account £££'s over to my Spanish Lloyds Bank (Banco Halifax). Euros.

Not a great rate but convenient & no additional fees.

Halifax have changed their web banking (not for the better in my view) and I seem to have lost the facility for International payments.

It appears you only get that facility if you have a Halifax Reward Account with monthly fees?

Am I correct .? Anyone else encountered this.?

Hi Joe

We have a Halifax (UK) Reward current a/c. Certainly there are no monthly fees, THEY give US £5 a month actually as long as it's funded with £1,000 a month. We also have a Lloyds International (Spanish) basic current a/c (where we have to keep min 600€ in generally) &, although we never transfer these days due to awful rates (we now use XE.com), we have just (to try to help) gone into the website.

Click 'my accounts', then 'Reward Current a/c', a new page opens. click on 'payments tab', you'll see 'UK Payments' and 'International Payments' so choose 'International Payments'.

What are you doing wrong?

 Thanks for the info .

The thing I'm doing wrong is not having a Reward Account. The facility to transfer always applied to the ordinary current account. As I don't pay in a £1000 a month I'll look at alternatives.

Thanks anyway.

Hi Joe

I don't believe the free transfers have anything to do with what a/c you have as long as it's a current a/c. We have the Reward current a/c we have as our pensions go into that & direct debits out etc, incoming funds exceeed £1,000 so Halifax give us £5 monthly.

The other current a/c we could've had was the Ultimate Reward Current Account  where we would need to pay £12.50 monthly but would get various extras plus, IF we paid in £1,000 min monthly we'd be given £5 monthly.

There is also the basic current a/c. See first link.

Hope you get sorted out.
