I'm happy to have found Transferwise. I need to transfer about 1000 pounds each month to a euro account in order to cover rent and living expenses. Doing this with my bank was costing me 2% plus a 25 pounds swift transfer fee. With Transferwise I now transfer it for a single fee of 5 pounds so they're saving me 45 pounds a month.
With this link you can get your first transfer free of any fee :
Just started using the service after years of a certain FX company; which meant communicating by email and waiting to long for the transaction to go through. Sometimes losing the rate and paying too much. Transferewise very quick and, in my experience, very competitive.
I am impressed with the transferwise transfer. It is really quick, comfortable. The team from transferwise is also prompt in communicating if any issue is encountered due to Banking legal rule of a specific country. They also provide you the options and make sure that your money is on track all the time.
This is unbelievably good compared to my previous experience with my bank !!!
Sending money with transferwise is like no other financial service. Not only are the rates very much lower than those of my own bank - which I have been banking with for 20 years! - but the transfers are quick and swift, no problem. I needed to send my ID for verification and it was verified and OK'd within the hour and the transfer was received THREE BANKING DAYS earlier than advised. I am recommending this service to everyone I can recommend it too :-)
For me being Dutch and working in Uk. It has been a very good experience to send money back and forth to Dutch accounts. At good rates and mostly takes no more than a couple of working days. is definitely trustworthy even if you send amounts over 5 K.
Very pleased with TransferWise and will use them again. All predictions as to when my funds would be available in the recipients account were overstated... they always arrive earlier than expected. 10 out of 10!
