I've used Transferwise twice already and I can't champion them enough. Straightforward messages, understandable and simple webdesign, and to mention the most important: fast and reliable service. I will use them again and again and would recommend it to friends (well, not just friends, anyone).
I was transferring a rather large sum from Sterling into Euros. The conversion was done within a day and the payment sent out within less than 36 hours (on a Saturday). It arrived at the destination the same day that it was sent out, three days ahead of the initially announced date for completion of the transaction. In addition, the final Euro amount credited was 11,1% higher than the quote given by my UK bank.
Works well, second time I've used it. Major savings involved, in fact, those folk who use the first transfer site they find already pay far too much. Comparing it to other sites and the savings are dramatic. One quibble, the BIC code I got from a Spanish bank had ten characters and Transferwise's window only allowed for eight, a phone call to Transferwise clarified it; ignore the last two(XX). It would be handy to state that beside BIC widow.
This has been an Excellent Experience using TransferWise. I am going to recommend as much as i can to each and every person who need to transfer money from one country to another, more securely, efficiently, faster. Thanks!!!!!
Great great experiences with TransferWise - totally trustworthy organization. My oly concern was that it was too good to be true - that they might turn out to be a fake. But, no! everything ran like clockwork and I got a quick and very cheap international money transfer. I will definitely be using them int he future and recommending it to anyone who wants to transfer money internationally without losing so much to the banks. Cheapest method I've ever come accross.
I've made two transfers with Transferwise in recent weeks. The first time involved setting up the facility to change AUD to EUROS and I needed to contact staff to do that. They answered all my questions swiftly and very helpfully. Once set up it continued to be straight forward. My money arrived to my Irish account within 2-3 days. It was even easier to use second time around since the set up had been done and all my details saved in my account - it was just a matter of moments to send the second transfer. It's has also been great to save money given they give a much better rate then the banks - will definitely be using them in the future and would recommend them without any hesitation.
Achieved an excellent rate and the transfer arrived in our overseas account 3 days ahead of the target date. Just a pity that they don't offer a regular payment plan making use of a direct debit on our UK account.
Good service. Even though I saw the settings for exchange rate changes and used it, I almost missed it. A bit more explanation, or a separate step at the beginning would be nice. Maybe also show the different totals rather than just the rate at 0% 1% 2% etc. Anyways - thanks, will be using again soon!
I earnestly recommend everyone who today is using online banking to conduct long distance international payments, to stop using bank transfer and use transferwise instead. Its better, faster, and yes it saves you loads of money by offering excellent mid-market rate. Try it once and you would know what i mean.
