CurrencyFair is known for low fees and competitive rates, but it isn’t available everywhere and has a limited range of currencies. If CurrencyFair doesn’t work for you or if you just want to see what else is out there, it’s worth comparing alternatives.
WorldRemit operates in a wide range of countries and currencies, and offers flexible options for receiving money, including sending money directly to a recipient’s phone as mobile airtime.
InstaReM only offers zero-margin transfers for some currencies and during certain hours, the company doesn’t make it clear which currencies and hours this applies to. These rates can make it especially cost-effective in some situations.
OFX has a wide range of countries and currencies available, along with advanced features that let you lock in exchange rates or wait for exchange rates to swing in your favour.
WorldFirst has a wider range of currencies than CurrencyFair and can be especially convenient for quickly sending money to Europe, the UK and US.
Remitly serves a wide range of countries, with an emphasis on south-east Asia. It offers quick transfers and cash pick-ups in areas where few other providers do.
MoneyGram is known for covering an exceptionally wide range of countries and currencies, along with an extensive network of agent locations. MoneyGram lets you pay with cash, but the rates aren’t very competitive.
The best money transfer service depends on the situation. Some are better for larger transfers, while others focus on smaller transfers or certain currencies.
