I have just checked on the Nationwide website and Turkey will continue to be a country where money transfers are FREE!............Sorry.

Ahh Tavey, that's good to know, I didn't know you could have an express transfer, sometimes it takes quite a few days to arrive. Thanks for that!!

Have made several transfers from UK to Turkey, sterling account to sterling account. Barclays charge £20.00 and it takes about four days. Nationwide also charges £20.00. Once arrived same day! However, be careful. Tick the box to say that the recipient will pay additional charges. Otherwise Nationwide will make a further charge saying that it is the amount charged at the receiving bank. We tried to get evidence of this charge, but Nationwide didn't want to know. Was assured at receiving bank that no charge was made, but Nationwide insisted it was! We gave up asking for copies of the "invoice" from receiving bank, we were getting nowhere. So now, always tick the box to make sure Nationwide do not get any extra money. Maisie

If you have a Halifax/HBOS internet account you can do it online for £9.50 - the cheapest I have ever seen.

I am getting things wrong here and apologize.For using a Nationwide "Flexaccount" debit card to withdraw money in Turkey there is NO CHARGE.For IBAN transfers of monies THERE IS A CHARGE.

The majority of financial institutions in the UK can use the SWIFT (Society for World-wide Interbank Financial Telecommunications) service to transfer money to other institutions around the world, including Turkey.

Here's a link to a webpage explaining how the SWIFT system works.
