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.
We have very high transfer limits, but your bank might not. Ask them how much they'll let you send per day or per transfer. If they have limits, we can help you plan your transfer.
Send us your ID and proof of address in advance to save time on verification later. See how verification works with TransferWise.
When you set up a transfer, your rate is guaranteed for 24–48 hours, so you have time to take advantage of a good rate. Sign up for our rate alerts, and we'll let you know when the rate is best.
