What is TransferWise?

TransferWise is the clever new way to convert money to send abroad. The idea is very simple.

Banks charge you huge fees when you send your money abroad. Then they hide more fees in unfair exchange rates. TransferWise has found a simple way to bypass the banks and make international money transfers transparent and fair. Like they should be. The pricing is transparent.

The exchange rate is the real one. The small fee is easy to spot.
