Banks and other transfer services have a dirty little secret. They add hidden markups to their exchange rates - charging you more without your knowledge. And if they have a fee, they charge you twice.

Wise never hides fees in the exchange rate. We give you the real rate, independently provided by Reuters. Compare our rate and fee with Western Union, ICICI Bank, WorldRemit and more, and see the difference for yourself.

We’re always honest with our customers. And honestly, we’re not the cheapest this time. But we don’t have comparison data for transparency or speed at the moment. So while there are cheaper options, they might not be the fairest or the fastest.
