Should you use your bank instead?

Only if you can guarantee you are getting the cheapest fee and the best exchange rate for sending your money to Kenya.

Here are the main differences between using your bank or an international money transfer service to send your money abroad:

  • Using your bank: They send your money using a SWIFT transfer, which costs around £20. You can only make a SWIFT transfer from a current account or savings account with the same bank.

  • Using a money transfer company: You may have to pay a transfer fee up to £7, but not all companies charge one. Unlike a SWIFT transfer, you can transfer money from a current account at any bank.

It is usually cheaper to use a money transfer service than your bank, but make sure you compare as many companies as possible to find the best deal.
