Still using a bank or a broker to send money to France or the U.S.? There’s now a smarter, cheaper way.

If you send dollars to France or euros to the U.S., TransferWise could save you a lot of money compared to your bank or a broker.

How? These are the extra costs of a bad exchange rate, which your bank doesn't tell you about - and how TransferWise compares:

How TransferWise works:

  • Our transfers are fast, fair and low cost – the fee is just 1%, or 0.7% on amounts over $5,000.
  • You always get the real exchange rate for your dollars - with no costly mark-up. Click here to read more about making your first transfer to France.
  • You can make EUR transfers straight from TransferWise.com, or from our iOS and Android apps.
  • You can send money with TransferWise directly to EUR bank accounts.

Whether you need to move money between your own accounts, send money to family or friends, pay bills or manage invoices for your business, TransferWise will save you time and money, and makes the process much easier.

And since we always use the real exchange rate - unlike banks and brokers who hide big costs in the bad exchange rates they use - you’ll know exactly how much you’re going to receive every time.

So when you next want to send money to France, remember there's a smart new way to do it. And why not invite your friends? When 3 people that you invite sign up and and each make one transfer over $300 (or equivalent in the currency they send us), you’ll earn $75 or equivalent, supported currency of your choice.
