Banks versus money transfer companies

My bank handles all my other financial transactions, so surely it’s the best place to go when I want to send money overseas, right? Wrong. Banks are actually close to the worst place to go when you want to send an international money transfer — they offer poor exchange rates and charge high fees, meaning you have to pay a lot more than you should to lodge a transfer.

You can get a much better deal if you use a company that specialises in sending money transfers. They can offer better exchange rates and fees that won’t put too much strain on your wallet, resulting in substantial savings when you calculate the total cost of a transaction.

Case Study: Kevin Sends Money to the Kyrgyz Republic

When he gets a phone call from his son who is travelling through Kyrgyzstan, Kevin immediately knows something must be wrong. Tom, his son, has been mugged on a late-night bus and only has about $10 left to his name. He needs funds urgently to pay for a hotel and book a flight home, so Kevin agrees to send him $1,000 as soon as possible. He compares the services of two money transfer companies that provide fast transfers and cash pickup options.

As you can see, Kevin can save $11 in fees by using the second transfer company.

How to compare transfer companies when transferring money to the Kyrgyz Republic

  • Exchange rates. Does the company regularly provide exchange rates that compare favourably to those offered by competitors?
  • Fees. How much will you need to pay each time you send a transfer? Is there a fee-free threshold when you send large amounts?
  • Transfer methods. Can you lodge transfers online or by visiting a branch? Are phone transfers available or can you send your funds using a mobile app?
  • Transfer options. Can you place forward contracts and limit orders? Can you set up a recurring payment?
  • Turnaround time. Will your beneficiary receive the funds within minutes or will they need to wait several working days?
  • Minimum transfer amount. Does the company impose minimum or maximum limits on the amount you can send in each transaction?
  • Pickup methods. Are the funds sent by bank deposit only or can your beneficiary collect cash from a transfer agent?
  • Customer service. Will you be able to rely on phone, email or live chat customer support if you ever experience a problem with a transaction?
