International money transfer fees: How much do they cost?

  • You pay a small, flat fee + fixed percentage of the transfer amount (you’ll always see the total cost upfront)
  • Some payment methods have an added fee, but that's usually tiny too.
  • You always get the real, mid-market exchange rate, with no markup whatsoever.

How to send money abroad

TransferWise makes transferring money abroad a breeze:

  1. Just tap in how much, and where to.

TransferWise converts your money at the 'inter-bank' rate – the real rate – so you save big time (even versus the guys saying there's 'zero' commission). On TransferWise, there's no room for sneaky bank surcharges or creeping hidden charges.

The best thing since sliced bread. Works perfectly and exchange rate is so much better than sending cash through the mail for them to go to local ban...
