Can ask for a CHAPS transfer - usually a charge of about £30, I think.

If you use online banking, money transfers tend to be almost immediate now.

i checked i couldnt do it between banks only within the bank,

btw, seeing as its the weekend, is it safe to deposit money into an atm?

Really? Sounds unusual.....

If i've understood your situation, you are saying that your bank won't allow to transfer funds to an account at another bank?

its naionwide

Time to give them a call me thinks.....

Faster Payments (a system set up a year or so ago) should allow you to transfer funds to your other account with a different bank pretty well instantly.

Nationwide are one of the Banks that do this according to this.

this is their help page, i cannot find anything about external transfers, this is why i got a shock today, i thought it was a pretty simple process!

You obviously need at least 2 accounts at different Banks, but if you set up a new payee on each account then funds should transfer almost instantly. If I shove some lolly from HSBC to Tesco it is there within minutes even though it says, "within 2 hours"
