international money transfer, FX companies anyone?

Hi Folks,

Anybody using those FX companies to transfer money in a country where the currency is not pegged to the US dollar? Since the exchange rate sucks right now for the Euro/Brit pound, I read that those people can give you a much better rate of exchange than your typical bank. Anybody willing to share the experience? Is it worthy? Any recommandation?

Thanks

I use UAE Xchange, give good service and always a better rate than the banks. Quicker too.

You get a card and all details are on it so faster in the branch...

Good Luck.

Dadster,
I used UAE xchange at the outlet mall on Al Ain rd, nice and close to DSO.
TT charge was aed 45 to a UK bank. The fx rate was better than banks by a bit.
There was a intermediate bank deduction of about $26 USD which I wasn't expecting though.
