If you have loved ones back in the UK this festive season, you may have missed the post in all the rush and lost the chance to send a gift. However, a great alternative is to send some money in the new year so that your loved ones can treat themselves to something in the January sales or perhaps indulge in a little pampering after all the excess.
One of the great advantages of this approach is that you can save on postal charges, meaning you can either send more money or keep the change and buy yourself a new year treat, too. You can also take a bit more time to consider exactly what to give your loved ones. You could specify what the money is for – a special day out, a hamper, or particular gifts for each person – or just provide the chance for people to treat themselves during the festive season.
The biggest advantage, however, may be that you can organise all this from the comfort of your own home and avoid the crush at the shops. If you’re looking for a specialist provider to take some of the hassle out of sending money to friends and family overseas, moneycorp can help. You can speak with our expert team to organise the transfer or use an online account, which makes it easy to set up, transfer and track all your international payments. The online account is also available as an app, which means that wherever you are, you can access your international payment account via a laptop, tablet or smart phone. If you need to make a transaction outside of office hours, this can be a very useful option to set everything up online to be executed the next business day. The mobile app means you can send your gift even while enjoying a day at the beach or sipping a celebratory cocktail. In addition, transfer fees are often even lower online than over the phone.
If you want to show someone they weren’t forgotten over Christmas and that you support their fresh start in 2020, sending money overseas can be a convenient way to show your loved ones you care, whilst also reducing the rush and stress of this time of year.
