Excuse my simpleness, but can someone talk me through the cash transfer using someone like hifx?
So I set up an account with them.
Do a bank transfer of GBP to that new account.
(How do I get the correct $ amount I need accurately?)
Then do a bank transfer of USD from there to an account DVC will notify me of?
What's the advantage of this over something like FairFX, who I have a currency card with already? Or do DVC only take transfers rather than card payments?
And finally, what do people find is the best way of paying their annual maintenance fees?
Thanks again for all the help!
We’ve just used Hifx for our DVC re-sale contract purchase, it was really easy. You can choose to specify an exact USD amount to send it then calculates the amount you pay and I used my debit card then with no issues. You get a good exchange rate and there was no fee.
I haven’t had to pay any annual fees yet but plan to open a US bank account on our next trip and transfer money in using Hifx and you can then pay monthly.
