    From HK cash to cash is HK$28 up to HK$10000 of transfer value. But you also have to look at the exchange rate. WU in general tends to be a bit worse than the bank rate so, for example, although HSBC charges me $150 or so for a transfer their rate it sometimes sufficiently better that the total cost is lower than WU.
