How to compare money transfer companies

  • Exchange rates. Look at the exchange rates offered for turning European euro into Myanmar kyats. Use the published mid-market rate as a baseline to compare against the rates you’re being offered. The company that’s closest is offering you the best rate.
  • Fees. Before you complete your transfer, confirm how much you’ll have to pay in transfer fees. What you’ll pay sometimes varies by payment option.
  • Transfer methods. Can you place transfers online, or do you need to visit an agent location? Can you send your funds over the phone?
  • Turnaround time. How long will you have to wait until your funds are available for your recipient? Processing times can vary depending by company and hours of operation at each cash pickup location.
  • Minimum amount. Will you need to exceed a minimum transfer limit with each transaction?
  • Pickup methods. Can your beneficiary pick up cash from their nearest transfer agent, or will the funds be deposited into their bank account?
  • Customer service. Is customer support available by phone, email or live chat, and are the hours convenient for your needs?

Foreign exchange rates explained

Exchange rate is used to determine how much one country’s currency is worth when trades for that of another country. A country with a strong currency — like Ireland — will yield more money when exchanged with a weaker currency. This amount changes daily and is primarliy influenced by global economic stability and inflation between banks.
