Best rates, cheapest ways to send money from South Africa

Many of our customers have friends and family in different countries and need to move their money in the safest, quickest, and cheapest way possible. It is important that our customer's money is moved safely and in the most convenient way.

The cheapest way to send money is usually to transfer money into a bank account. However, you should never directly use your bank account to make international money transfers as the fees must seem competitive but can cost you more in the exchange rate. The best option is to use online money transfer services that act as an intermediary between yourself and the receiver. 

When sending money from bank account to bank account, you can use money transfer services such as TransferWise, CurrencyFair, and TransferGo. Should you need your money to arrive in cash, you can use Mama Money for fantastic rates and reliable service or other service providers such as Azimo or WorldRemit, MoneyGram, or Western Union.
