Send a bank draft in the post to make overseas payments.


A draft is like a bank cheque made out in a foreign currency. It's another way to make payments and settle a transaction overseas, especially if you don't have the receiver's electronic bank account details.

Why should I use a draft?

  • Can be sent in the post – a draft can be enclosed with letters or invoices and forwarded direct to the beneficiary.
  • Secure – drafts are non-negotiable and can only be credited to the beneficiary's bank account (unless the beneficiary has endorsed).
  • Can be stopped in certain circumstances if missing in transit - a stop can normally be issued of the draft and a replacement issued.
  • Wide range of currencies offered
