Compare prices for sending money abroad

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. Compare our rate and fee with Western Union, ICICI Bank, WorldRemit and more, and see the difference for yourself.

Do you need an IBAN in Spain?

Yes. If you’re making – or expecting to receive – an international money transfer to a bank account in Spain, then just a standard bank account number isn’t enough. If you want your money to arrive quickly and safely, you’ll usually need to give the bank a few extra details, such as an IBAN or SWIFT code.

Banks assign IBANs to each of their accounts to make sure that international transfers are processed correctly.

IBANs contain all of the country, bank, and account details you need to send or receive money internationally. This system is used throughout Europe, and also recognised in some areas of the Middle East, North Africa and the Caribbean.

There is a learning curve, but other than that amazing rates. One issue was when in Brazil WISE used my PLN instead of BRL or USD or Euro, i dont know...
