CPL and IR in Europe.. best way to pay?

Can anyone advise on the best way for UK students to pay for their CPL and IR when completing them in Europe?

Debit card/credit card/cash/opening a Spanish bank account etc etc

I am thinking along the lines of getting maximum value from the exchange rates with minimum fees for obviously substantial amounts of money rather than protection via credit cards.

The best way I have found up to now is a SEPA payment via my Barclays online banking but if there is a better method I would like to know.

thank you

thank you. I think HIFX is probably the most cost effective way now:-
