In a word; yes!
With TransferWise you get the real exchange rate (the one you see on Reuters, Google and Yahoo) and you pay a tiny fee. The service is fair, transparent and costs far less than high street banks and other currency exchange services.
But I don’t usually pay a transaction fee?!
Unfortunately, this is what many have been led to believe.
There's no such thing as a free transfer. Your nasty surprise is hiding away in an unfair exchange rate. Whether you've been told it or not, on average you're losing around 5% in fees.
The good news is; it's exactly this unfair behaviour that TransferWise was built to break.
Finally, transparency and fairness over greed. It’s about time!
