How much does it cost to transfer money with GMT Money Transfer?

The fees that apply to your GMT Money Transfer transaction will vary depending on where you are sending your money, how much money you send and the transfer method you select. For example, the following fees apply to transfers to India:

  • Transfer amounts of $0 to $2,499 attract a $5 fee
