Well...as simple as that really...

My parents live in Spain, and need to send some money over to me, to sort somethings out over here for them...

Anyone know the quickest way to do this??

dont they have a UK bank that they could transfere some money into your account, if its paper money then western union will be your best bet, not sure how much they charge thoe.

They dont have a bank account over here no, just bank accounts in Spain. To transfer from that to my account here takes a lifetime I think.

How does the western union work? How long does it take? Im not fussed abut charges lol, as its not my money

they both take too long...need to get all these things sorted out as soon as possible, paypal bank transfers take at least 5-6 working days...

They can transfer from a spanish account but if they live out there and have to do this thing more regularly you might suggest to them to get an HSBC account, as they have branches all over Spain :)

Well that might be handy, as my account is at HSBC, which means if they can find a HSBC, it would mean they could just pay it directly into my account, without having to wait any time to clear

There should be one in Valencia if they are all over...
