Save Money On International Transfers By Comparing Money Transfer Services

Do you have any relative, friend or business partner abroad? If yes, then you know the pain of high international transfer fees and exchange rates. You might usually rush to the bank to transfer the money but the average fees charged by the bank on international transfers is about $40. If you want to transfer money from the United States to the United Kingdom then currency exchange rates at the bank could take as high as 7% of the total amount. That’s $70 for every $1000 transaction. Now, that’s really high, especially when you can avoid all this overhead.

That is why lots of people prefer other third-party money transfer services. The transactional charges and fees highly vary from one service to another. If you make international transfers very frequently then you do need to find a service with cheaper transfer rates. It is smart to compare different money transfer services and go with the one with low fees.

But how do we compare these money transfer services? I am glad you asked.
