I had my bag stolen about two weeks ago whilst in Madrid. My mobile phones, bank cards, money etc were all taken and so the result has been that i´m really short on money at the moment, i have €5 to live on for the rest of the week and as i dont have any bank cards/credit cards anymore i cant withdraw money. I was just wondering if it was possible to send money any other way than through post where it would reach me in a day or so as my parents have offered to help me out. They are in Northern Ireland and i´m in Madrid until the end of august but i really need money now. I know that money would take a while to reach me by post and although i have ordered new bank cards, they too will take a while to reach me. Can anyone help?

Hi
The fastest way to send money abroad is by www.westernunion.co.uk or www.worldfirst.com or www.thomasexchange.co.uk.
You can do it from a post office!!!!!!!
But if you reported your card stolen 2 weeks ago your bank should have offered to help you by sending you!!!!! an agreed amount to help you over until your new card arrived at an agreed bank!!! address within 7 days!!!.
Anyway hope this helps.

Hi
A reasonable cheapish one I have found is www.chequepoint.com and the Post Office one is www.moneygram.com so hope you are OK.
