Transferring money can be a real headache, even the simplest form; across bank accounts in the same country. When you step it up a notch to international transactions, it feels like your jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet with no parachute, or at least I did.
Back in 2008 I moved to Florida from the UK for University, I had brought most of my savings with me in cash but left some at home for I.C.E. Late 2009 i was running short and finding it hard to pay rent with my part time job and decided to dip into what i had left. Banks on either side of the water tried pulling my leg with outrageous fee's, and terrible exchange rates.
Determined not to loose over 50% of what i needed to transfer (being a poor student), yes yes you may say, but seriously it's my hard earned money, day light robbery is something i don't really enjoy. I dived head first into the world wide web, the only company that seemed to care, and have a clean presentation with no ad's or gimmickry, was Tranzfers.com. Albeit almost too good to be true, a 7 pound fee and literal exchange rate...
I took the leap of faith, had a few issues initially moving funds to the US (bank on US end), but their customer service team were fantastic, and walked me through step by step. I was astonished, nothing has ever been smoother and more assuring when dealing with monetary funds. I am however frustrated with the bank i use here as they charge to receive wire transfers, typical robbery once again.
Its not often you find a company worth more than its weight in gold, but Tranzfers has helped me in times of need, and I will recommend them to anybody willing to listen.
I just wish they had bank accounts!
