Citi offers fee-free money transfer to UK Polish community

Sorry bit of a boring topic but I thought some forum members might find this useful if they want to transfer money...


Citibank is to offer fee-free instant money transfers between
accounts in the UK and Poland through a link-up with sister bank
Citi Handlowy.

The Citibank Easy Account offers Poles no monthly fee for account
maintenance and a Visa debit card that can be used to make
purchases, and withdraw cash at 35,000 ATMs across the UK.

Accounts in the UK and Poland can be opened over the Web by filling
in an online application form. Account holders can also receive
information about their account balance free of charge on their
mobile phones or e-mail address using the Citibank Alerting Service.

Over the past few years the demand for banking services for Poles
living and working abroad has increased dramatically. According to
the Polish Ministry of Finance, in 2006 Polish immigrants sent
EUR4.5 billion to their families in Poland. The countries that have
largest Polish populations are traditionally the US - 9 million,
Germany - 2 million and the UK - 1 million.

Citi currently offers money transfers to bank accounts at Citi
Handlowy from 6 EU Member States, Australia and India. In the near
future the bank says it will launch a bespoke service for Poles
resident in the US.

Moneybookers have a good money transfer service between the UK and Poland. Free to receive money. Very cheap to send.
