    Red face TransferWise

    Hello everybody

    Has anyone here ever used 'TransferWise' to transfer money from abroad to HK (or vice versa) ?
    Curious to hear your experience
    Thanks
    😊

    yes, it works very well and it is very quick.

    I use it for HKD to SGD and AUD conversions but have not tried it in reverse.

    I used instarem - very good. You get discount coupons and earn points from referrals, nice concept

    Check rates between Transferwise and Instarem. Go with the cheapest.

    Careful with your bank charges. Inatarem gave me better rates but there was an incoming fee charge in my Canadian bank account with them as opposed to Transferwise which didn't have any fees

    I see saw between transferwise and Instarem depending which is the best rate. Transferwise tends to be quicker. Not had any fees at the receiving bank end.

    instarem does points for signing up which gives a discount and points for recommending friends.

    I always use Instarem since rates are bit better than Transferwise.
    When comparing, look at the total amount after fees and forex.
