How to compare UK to Australia money transfers

The price for transferring money is determined by two things, the amount you want to send and the transfer service's charges (including commission, sending and receiving fees).

Providers tally up all their charges for handling your transfer and add them to the cost of the transfer as a single fee.

Each service will usually have both a minimum and maximum money transfer you can make, so you'll need to check that your money transfer is eligible, first and foremost.

However, larger transfers are often eligible for smaller fees, so you should also consider how much as well as how often you will want to make a transfer. For example, two 500 transfers for 5 each or a single 1,000 transfer for a one-off 7 fee.

What about exchange rates?

Exchange rates are something of a hidden cost. While rates dictate how many $AUD your transfer buys, the exchange rate you'll be given is often unavailable even to the service provider until it your transfer is finalised.

Similar to the provider's fees, the exchange rate you are offered is affected by the amount of money that you want to transfer. This means that you can often secure a provider's best rates if you are willing to transfer a larger amount of money, e.g. 5,000.

If you check the threshold for each provider's premium rates, you should be able to identify packages where your transfer will be eligible for better rates, thus buying you more Australian Dollars.
