Pay with your debit or credit card, or send the money from your online banking.
TransferWise always gives you the real and fair mid-market exchange rate.
The recipient gets money in their currency directly from TransferWise’s local bank account.
Most providers show you their transfer fee upfront. That’s only fair. But some of them sneak a markup into the exchange rate. And that’s not fair.
A markup means you get a bad exchange rate, which means you lose money when you change currencies.
At TransferWise, we never mark up the exchange rate. We just use the exchange rate – independently provided by Reuters. That means fair, low-cost transfers, every time.
Expatica partnered with TransferWise to help expats better understand international money transfers. This is because the market is confusing, full of financial jargon and not easy to understand. There is a fundamental problem with transparency, as most people do not know how much they'll get charged for their international transfers.
TransferWise helps expats just like you save money on international transfers because it gives you the real exchange rate and charges a fair fee upfront. This means that you know exactly how much you're sending and how much the recipient is getting, the exchange rate and the fee, it is transparent as it should be.
