Sending money internationally

There’s a cheaper way to send your money

International money transfers can be expensive. Banks and online providers often claim to be free or only charge a small fee. In reality, they may hide large fees in the bad exchange rates they give you, which costs significantly more than you’d think
We’ve found that TransferWise is a safe, cheaper option.

Cheap every time

TransferWise charges a low, upfront fee. And they always give you a great exchange rate, so you know there aren’t any hidden fees.

Bank-like security

TransferWise is subject to the same regulations as your bank for the services they offer. So even though they’re much cheaper, it’s every bit as safe.
