How much will it cost to send money to India?

To send money to India, no matter which service you choose, you’ll usually have to pay a fee. Some providers also charge a higher percentage to exchange currencies.

Here’s what you need to watch out for to get the cheapest transfer:

  • Exchange rate and fees. Compare both. While one company might offer a great rate, it might charge higher fees. On the other hand, a company offering a poorer rate may have low or zero fees. Equally, some providers will waive fees if you’re transferring a larger amount.
  • Pick up methods. Some transfer companies require that you transfer funds to the recipient’s bank account. Others give recipients the option of picking up cash, which can be particularly useful if the recipient does not have a bank account.
  • Transfer methods. If you’re dealing with a mainstream bank you can visit a branch to transfer funds. Otherwise, depending on the service provider you choose, you can transfer funds over the phone, on an app, online, at stores or at specific kiosks.
  • Transfer time. If the recipient needs money in a hurry, your best bet is to look for a service that allows cash pickups because this method normally takes no more than a day. Bank account transfers can take between one and five business days.
  • Minimum transfer amounts. The minimum you can transfer can vary from one service provider to the next. While some may let you transfer as little as one Great Britain pound, some others have minimum limits as high as £1,000.
  • Customer service. If you plan on transferring money to India on an ongoing basis, you may want to look for a company that offers high levels of customer service, along with support via phone, chat and email.

How long will it take?

The delivery time should be no longer than 1 business day with most providers. Times may vary. Our table can be ordered by speed to help you find the speediest transfer service.
