Azimo is the best money transfer service I've used so far for transfers from UK to Brazil, they accept cards so to me is very convenient as all I do is give my debit card details as in an online purchase, what is very different from other companies around as either you have to go personally on their counter to use your card or make a money transfer into their bank account, what I don't feel is very safe in doing as theres no money back guarantee in case something goes wrong. Using my card at least I have card insurance and customer protection that and if something would happen such as company does not deliver the money to the destination, I could claim a transaction chargeback. Another advantage is that the money goes straight into my family's bank account, avoiding the hassle for them to go pick up big sums of cash somewhere like what happens if you send thru western union or other transfer companies and in a country such as Brazil with plenty violence around the last thing I want is my family members walking around with big sums of cash in their pockets and giving chance for bad luck in their way from collecting it to put the money in the bank account. The transfer fee is very cheap (£5) and sometimes they do limited promotions with free transfers. The delivery of the money is very quick too, last time I've sent money to Brazil from the UK was on 2nd of December (a Sunday) and it got delivered into my family's bank account on Monday 3rd in the afternoon.
Such a shame you can't send money from Brazil to the UK in the same way but I guess in time they probably will expand this technology worldwide :)
I highly recommend Azimo for international money transfers from the UK, they are cheap, reliable and do a fast delivery!
Was stuck in the Philippines after having lost my card, but still had the details online. I needed to get cash to myself, and so tried to go through more traditional alternatives, to send money through them online, and collect it in person.
Azimo was so simple. I was able to process the transaction online, and within an hour, it told me the cash was available for pickup. Went to the vendor and received my cash within 15 minutes. Absolute lifesaver.
In my experience Azimo is straightforward, clear and easy to use. To find out if it is cheaper the exchange rate offered has to be taken into account as well as the fee. In my case both were better than competitors.
I have used Azimo twice and there were problems both times. First time it did not give the full address for the pick up point. I could have been in very difficult straits if my friends living in Argentina had not pointed this out. My advice? Double check directly with Azimo (email) that you have ALL the details. You don't want to be wandering around a strange city without all relevant information. The second time, Azimo flashed up a message saying my DC was under review and the transaction couldn't be completed. I had to waste a lot of anxious time checking with my bank. The message was false. I've never had those kind of experiences with competitors! The good thing about Azimo is that email responses to queries are same day.
Provided nothing else goes wrong I'll use Azimo again but not willing to recommend it to friends at the moment given this level of performance.
I love the part that says "You have saved 85 GBP compared to sending with high street banks" Put all that 85's and 70's together and i'd be running into thousands.
With regards to Support,
Well, Sometimes i just feel like the people in Azimo knows me personally. I call and before even saying too much they already know it's me and already fixing any issues.
Been using this service for months and i think it's goodbye to any other service with regards to funding my oversea projects.
quite surprised with the awesomeness of this service...sending money from uk to my country has never been easier...try it. transfered on Sunday got my money on Monday next day. This is the future I guess. Saved a bunch of cash on the currency conversion alone which is always a let down using other services.
I though it might be a con, but its not. yupi!
Very fast and reliable service, I would recommend to anyone
never experienced a problem azimo offers good rates and low fees to the main banks as when i was trying to send money to a rural bank fee was quite high but used collection instead so always a way to do it right :) very quick which in some cases is really handy
keep it up guys
