    Search to see if your Romanian Bank has a London office (most foreign banks have an office there) if so you can deposit money there as you would at home. If you are worried about having too much cash on you then you get an international money order from the post office, have it made out to your name and put it in the bank when you get home.

    The only way you should have any problems (even then i dont think it's a problem) is if you are working for cash in hand! If you are doing IM then won't you just get paid like you normally would, to your bank/paypal etc?

    You could exchange the cash for travellers cheques and take them back to your country without depositing in a bank.

    If you have a bank account in Romania, all you need to do is to tell the bank to give you your account's IBAN number. Go to any bank in England and tell them that you want to send money to that account. You will pay a charge for the service. If they tell you that you must have account with them before they can do it for you, give them a proof that you do not reside in UK.

    Alternatively, in London, there are a lot of money transfer shops. They can also do it for you but the charge will be higher than banks.

    Before you come to the UK, call your Bank (or check your Bank Statement) for an IBAN (International Bank Account Number) - this will allow you to deposit cash from any bank in the UK into your account.

    International charges are about 15-20 pounds per transfer normally, thats if you have an account with that bank, otherwise check with your home bank who they are partners with in the UK, all major banks have partners in the UK and use them as they will be cheapest

    I don't think it's possible. Maybe a wire transfer, but I think you must have one open account at any UK Bank.

    Bafta!

    Why not Moneygram the money to yourself. Go to a Post Office here who do Moneygram transfers and send it to yourself or even a friend in Romania and collect it when you get back. I know you can collect at BCR for Moneygram as I have used it. You could even use Western Union but I have found Moneygram is cheaper.

    Or it seems they have an office here. BCR in London is called

    Bank
    Anglo Romanian Bank Limited

    Address
    3 Finsbury Square
    LONDON EC2A 1AE

    City
    London

    Country
    United Kingdom

    Quite surprised IBAN/SWIFT Code wasn't mentioned until 8th post in here....Guess a lot of people don't do intl transfers?

    Why dont you just use a visa/mastercard credit card with international bank? That would be way more easier for yourself...
