Large transfers. Less stress. Real rate.

If you're sending a lot of money abroad, we'd like to give you peace of mind. You'll always get the real exchange rate, be able to track your transfer, and reach a specialist if you need to.

The rate is mightier than the fee.

Here's how much it actually costs to send £50,000 to euros with TransferWise, along with two high street banks. As you can see, you have to look at the exchange rate and fee in tandem.

On every transfer, you get the real rate — and your recipient gets more money.

To make extra money, banks often add a spread to the exchange rate. It's like a big, hidden fee.

Our smart tech and lower costs let us give you the real rate, like the one you'll see on Google. Combine that with our transparent, upfront fee, and more of your money gets to the other side.

And if your transfer is over £100,000, your fee will be 0.1% less on the amount that's over that threshold.

Once you’ve opened your TransferWise account, we’ll need to verify your identity, usually with some photo ID, proof or address, and/or a picture of you holding that ID.

The way we verify you depends on a few things:

The amount you send:

  • when you send larger amounts, like 80,000 GBP or more, we might need to see additional documents that show how you got the money.
  • when you send smaller amounts, we'll usually verify your identity.

The currency you send:

  • some countries require some proof of identities to send any amount.
  • some currencies require further identification.

How many transfers you've made:

  • while we might only verify your identity at first, we might need to verify your address later on.

A valid ID document can be:

  • passport (photo page only)
  • if you're a Nigerian citizen, we only accept passports or the new type of Nigerian national cards
  • national ID card
  • photo driver's licence (except New Zealand residents sending NZD)

A valid proof of address document can be:

  • utility bills: gas, electric, or landline phone (no mobile phone bills)
  • a bank or credit card statement (photo/scan of a physical letter or PDF of statement)
  • a council tax bill, or a HMRC notification
  • vehicle registration or tax
  • photo driving licence showing your address and expiry date
  • any other government or financial institution-issued document

If your money comes from your salary, we might ask for:

  • pay slips
  • a recent tax return
  • a letter from your employer about how much you earn

If your money comes from investments, we might ask for:

  • investment or savings certificates, contract notes or statements
  • confirmation from the investment company, bank or dividend payerAnswer...

If your money comes from selling property, we might ask for:

  • part of the sales contract that’s signed by both parties
  • a bank statement that shows you’ve received the money, with reference to the sale of a specific property

Save on large transfers.

We take the stress out of sending large amounts abroad — and help you save for the important things.
