Save on international money transfers

When you send or receive an international transfer with your bank, you might lose money on a bad exchange rate and pay hidden fees as a result.
This is because banks hide a fee in the exchange rate, which means that you will spend more on international money transfers than you should.
We recommend you use Wise (formerly TransferWise), which is usually much cheaper. For example, 1000 EUR transfer to USD can cost you as little as 4 EUR with Wise (formerly TransferWise), compared to 28 EUR with a bank.
