TransferGuides provides simple and practical advice on international money transfers. It was born out of the sheer confusion that one encounters when trying to move money across borders for the first time. With banks charging outrageous fees, and a large web of money transfer services hoping to cut you away from the pack, it is quite easy to become overwhelmed.
Using a money transfer service is often about getting the best price, in terms of exchange rates and fees, but it’s not always everything. They can also provide helpful products and tools to navigate the volatile world of foreign exchange markets. So, at the end of the day, it’s best to find a service that will balance competitive rates and the features you want, to provide you with the best value overall.
That being said, determining which service will be right for you may not be so easy. The goal of TransferGuides is to help you with making a decision. In this mission, where possible, we’ve opened an account with each major service and have used it for ourselves. That way, we are able to provide you with a first-hand account of how they perform, and compare them against other services in the market.
If this sounds like something you’ll find useful, here are a few posts to get you started:
