How do money transfer quotes work?

You need to complete an online quote form from a money transfer company to find out what transfer deal they can offer you. You will get a quote by email, which includes:

  • An exchange rate: This is how much you can exchange one currency for another, e.g. a rate of 0.8 for sending US dollars to the UK gives you £0.80 for every dollar.

  • Transfer fee: This is what you pay to make a transfer, but only some companies charge it. Use this comparison to check the transfer fees from each company.

Most companies offer better transfer deals when you send over a set amount of money, like £5,000 or more.

Another type of fee is commission, but you will not see it in your quote. Instead, each transfer company uses it to help calculate the exchange rate they offer you.

How long does it take?

It depends on the type of transfer, but most companies offer:

  • Same day: It can take up to 24 hours for your money to arrive in the UK.

  • Standard transfer: It can take your money up to five working days to arrive in the UK.

Most transfer companies also offer a regular facility, which lets you agree an exchange rate for several transfers over a set period of time, such as every month for a year.
