In the table below, you'll see where and how much you'll be charged in fees for your TransferWise Borderless Account. You'll always be shown the fee you’ll be charged before you make any transaction.
|When You||You’ll be charged|
|Open a Borderless Account in any currency||Nothing|
|Add money to your Borderless Account||Nothing, but if you add money with a card there may be an additional card fee. (More details below)|
|Receive money into your Borderless Account||Nothing|
|Convert money between currencies in your Borderless Account||The normal TransferWise conversion fee for regular transfers (no minimum fee applied)|
|Send money (to a bank account in the same currency)||A small fixed fee (more info below). We charge this to cover our costs and remain consistent with our usual fees.|
|Send money (to a bank account in a different currency)||The normal TransferWise conversion fee + a small fixed fee (fees are in the table below - the fixed fee is always calculated in the currency you're sending to). We charge this to cover our costs and remain consistent with our usual fees.|
We use the standard TransferWise conversion fees when converting money between different currencies on your Borderless account. You can find out what these are on our pricing page.
Note: You won’t be charged a minimum fee for converting money between different currencies. E.g. if you convert £100 from GBP to EUR, you will be charged 50p, compared to the £2 fee you’d get when making a normal bank to bank transfer.
Sending money from your Borderless account
When you transfer money out of your Borderless account to a bank account in the same currency, you'll be charged a small fixed fee. This fee is charged in order to cover our costs of the transaction, and varies by currency, as shown in the table below. You can only make same currency transfers in our 15 Borderless currencies for now.
Also, if you're transferring to an account in a different currency, you'll be charged our normal conversion fee plus the small fixed fee mentioned in the table. This is dictated by the receiving currency in your transfer.
Please note: If you’re making a smaller transfer (eg below 200 GBP), and paying from your Borderless account, you may be able to benefit from a slightly lower fee than normal by setting up the transfer directly from your Borderless account page (instead of hitting the normal ‘Send money’ button). This is because the minimum fee isn’t applied when making a transfer in this way.

Debit and Credit Card Fees
When paying for a normal transfer, or adding money to your Borderless account using a Debit or Credit card, the additional fees shown here apply. These fees are no different to the ones charged for normal transfers.
We may need to ask you for additional verification information, and documents, depending on the amount added to or received in your Borderless account. If this is the case, we'll contact you by email, and explain the process and what we'll need. There's no limit for how much you can hold in your different Borderless account currencies right now, with the exception of US Dollars, whose limits are shown below.
In the table below, you'll see how much you'll be able to receive into your USD balance.
