Sending money with Desjardins: What to know

What we like

  • No maximum limits. There is no limit to the amount of money you can send.
  • Many countries. Funds can be sent to almost every country in the world.

What to watch out for

  • Poor exchange rates. Desjardins adds a larger margin to the exchange rate than specialist money transfer services.
  • No online transfers. You need to visit an agent location to arrange a transfer.
  • Outdated website. The website isn’t very user-friendly so it can be hard to find out more about services on offer.
