    Sending money to the UK can be an expensive business, more so if you aren’t even aware of all the hidden fees. Money transfer companies and banks profit by charging you fees and a normally hidden margin on the exchange rate.

    Using your Bank to make international wire transfer to the United Kingdom can be especially expensive – often 5% to 10% worse than using a foreign exchange specialist to send to an UK based bank account or pay a sterling invoice.



    Top Transfer to the UK Providers

    When choosing a provider to send money to the UK finding the best currency rate is generally everyone’s number one factor. Other important criteria to also consider are transfer speed, delivery options (bank transfer or cash pickup), customer servce, mobile apps and extra fees.
