What is the cheapest way to send money from the UK to India?

My wife and I want to send money to her family in India. The Halifax are going to charge £17 per transaction, Western Union is about £14 for the transaction and a foreign bankers draft costs £10. What other options do we have?

    Moneybookers.com. Free to send, and no more than EUR3.50 to withdraw.

    Not only is PayPal one of your cheapest options it’s also one of the quickest.

    Doing a transfer to an Indian bank from a UK bank where you have no international trading history (or more importantly the person receiving the money has non) can take a long time… maybe weeks for funds to be cleared and released – which true but strikes me as bizarre in this electonic age.

    Using PayPal funds can be cleared in a matter of days.
