Hi Wayne, Thanks for your question. You can speak to your current bank about increasing your transfer limit, so then you can do it in one transaction rather than multiple transactions. To deposit at a bank with no branches, you can utilise their Bank@Post service which means you deposit the funds at a local Post Office. Hope this helps, Shirley

Hi Debs, Thanks for your question. Usually the exchange rate is determined by the bank that sends the money, so in this case it's your UK bank. You may want to get in touch with them directly to discuss the exchange rate they're providing for you. If you're referring to HSBC GetRate, Get Rate is only applicable for eligible transactions, of amounts from $1 to $500,000 for Internet Banking. There may be fees charged for sending / receiving international money transfers too. Please let me know if I can help further, Shirley

Hi D, Thanks for your question. From a savings point of view, if the credit union is an Authorised Deposit-taking Institution (ADI) it is typically covered under the Government Guarantee. This insures your deposits of up to $250,000 per person, per institution. Credit unions are regulated in the same way as the banks. Cheers, Shirley
