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.
Each money transfer company uses the transfer fee to cover the administration costs of sending your money abroad.
Money transfer services protect your funds until they have been sent to your receiving bank account in Kenya.
Some transfer companies only let you send money to an account in your own name. Check this before sending your money to avoid any delays.
They deduct their costs from the interbank rate (the rate banks use to exchange currencies with one another) to give you a personalised rate.
Your bank could charge you a SWIFT transfer fee, typically around £20, which is more expensive than the fees charged by money transfer companies.
