Where and when can you make international payments?

You can make international payments in foreign currencies online, over the phone and in branch from 7.30am until 4.30pm Monday to Friday.

You can make an international payment outside of these hours between 4.30pm to 7.30am and on weekends, but they need to be sent in pounds sterling.

What information do you need to give us to make an international payment?

You’ll need to give us:

  • the full name and address of the person you want to pay
  • the name and address of the bank of the person you want to pay
  • the International Bank Account Number (IBAN)
  • the Bank Identifier Code (BIC)

The TSB BIC is TSBSGB2A. Please log into your account using Mobile / Internet banking or check your bank statement to find your IBAN.

How much money can I send?

You can send up to £75,000.

Which exchange rate will be used when you make an international payment?

We’ll use our standard exchange rate to convert your payment into the foreign currency. This will be the one that applies on the day we make the payment. If you make a payment to a foreign country in pounds, the bank in the foreign country will set the exchange rate.

Our standard exchange rate is the rate we use for converting pounds into foreign currency. It changes all the time, so we’ll confirm the current rate before you make the payment. You can also find out the exchange rate by visiting a branch or calling us.

How long will it take for your payment to reach the person you’re paying?

How long a payment takes depends on where the payment is being sent. More details can be found in section 5 of the Personal banking terms and conditions.
