Given the current crisis in my country, I was forced to move abroad to find a better financial life. I’ve been living and working in a good UK job for two years now. Although my wife and children came with me I send money to my relatives in Greece very often. Every time I do so I make sure I'm getting a good currency exchange deal by checking online how to send money abroad at the best rates.
