In addition to this it can take a number of days for the Polish Zlotys to the reach the recipients account, usually 3-4 working days.

Alternatively a money sending bureaux such as Western Union will be able to assist you with your UK-Poland money transfer. Although these services often provide a faster way to transfer money abroad than a bank, once again you are not likely to get the best deal for your money due to the significant transfer fees and uncompetitive Zloty exchange rates which are fixed, so you will be unable to benefit from a favourable exchange rate if one comes available.
