Example: A typical overseas currency transfer of 1,000,000 koruna (CZK) using CSOB Banka services would have a transaction exchange rate margin of around 5.0% – or 50,000 CZK. Using a specialist broker, in this example TorFX – the exchange rate margin would work out at 0.7% – or only 7,000 CZK in total, which is a large saving over the bank service.
International money transfers from CSOB Banka could take longer to arrive than using a private currency exchange provider and you will also need to be an existing CSOB Banka account holder to use their services.

Private brokers offer commission free currency transfers, typically over a value of £5000 (or 50,000 CZK).
