The currency you are sending, e.g. pounds
The amount you want to send
The currency you want your money transferred to, e.g. Swedish krona
What does a quote tell you?
Once you have completed your quote, the transfer company sends you the deal they can offer by email; it will include:
The exchange rate
How many Swedish krona you get
Any transfer fees
The total cost of the transfer
Compare the total cost of transferring your money from as many transfer companies as you can, and choose the cheapest one to find the best deal.
Why use a money transfer company?
You get more transfer options compared to using your bank or building society, for example:
You could have your money arrive in Sweden the same day: This is an option most transfer companies offer, but usually with a charge. Ask each transfer company if they offer this service, and compare the costs to find the cheapest option.
You can arrange a transfer for a later date: This lets you fix an exchange rate now but agree to send your money at a later date. This helps you plan your finances for future transfers without the worry of exchange rate fluctuations.
You can set up regular transfers: This means you can arrange to make several transfers over a set term, such as a year. This can be helpful if you are making multiple payments, for example when paying for your child's overseas tuition.
