Hi, new to this site but would love to hear from anyone about transferring money between Halifax BS and Lloyd's International.

We need to transfer funds monthly in respect of our hopefully soon to start long let in Los Alcazares.

Four of us all retired, some older than others. Have been going to Spain regularly for about four years at first looking to buy but now only to let in view of property markets. We have moved around on our visits and at the moment Los Alcazares meets our needs about the best.

Well Halifax, It should be free - it always used to be.

Here is the link from the Halifax site, just click on the transfers to Spain tab

I live is Spain so it maybe different for you Halifax but have you considered having your state pension paid in Spain. 
I get mine every four weeks, the exchange rate is as good as any one will get  and there are no charges at either end.   
I also found that when I changed my bank in Spain, the Pension Service accepted the details over the phone and the funds were correctly transferred the following month.
Even for people staying say 3 months that might be a reasonable option, as long as they have a bank account in Spain (might I add: with almost any bank other than Barclays or the Halifax)
