I need to transfer a few hundred pounds to somebody in the US who doesnt have an international bank account. What is the best/cheapest/easiest way to do so? Western Union has been suggested but I am a bit scared of that and think there must be a better way?

You don't need an 'international' bank account. You need their IBAN and BIC code. THey can ask their bank for those. It usually costs around £10 depending on how much you are sending.

My parents used moneygram once which was fine. Why are you suspicious of Western Union?
