Default Money transfer - PayPal/Xoom

I have a Spanish bank account and regularly transfer funds for upkeep of my apartment. I have recently tried the new service from PayPal called Xoom for international transactions.
It cost just 1.99 and the exchange rate is at the interbank rate. It took just 36 hours to complete and they email to confirm it. Quite impressive.

I will have a look at that. Although I often moan about the internet it seems to make it so much this easier these day.

Thanks for this. I have just done a direct comparison between Paypal Xoom and Currency Direct when transferring 1000 pounds sterling. With Currency Direct I get 1066 euros but with Xoom I get 1074. Every little counts.
