Azimo is an online money transfer company known for offering fast, same-day money transfers at competitive rates. Its primary focuses are speed, simplicity and value. But since you can only use it to send money from Europe or the UK, Australians will need to find an alternative.
Like Azimo, MoneyGram is also focused on quick, cheap and easy money transfers. Its fees and rates aren't necessarily as competitive for all transfers, but it offers a range of extra options where Azimo doesn't.
InstaReM is known mostly for its mid-market rates, which it only offers for some currencies during certain trading hours. When available, the mid-market rate can make larger transfers in particular more cost-effective. But it doesn't have the same range as Azimo.
OFX specialises in large transfers, waiving fees for transactions over $10,000 and offering extras like forward contracts and limit orders to help users get better rates.
CurrencyFair is mostly known for its competitive fees, consisting of a percentage of the transfer (often as low as 0.25%) plus a EUR€3 or equivalent flat fee. It's also known for its relatively low exchange rate margins, which is made possible through its use of a peer-to-peer marketplace.
TorFX doesn't charge any fees and instead takes a cut from exchange rate margins. Plus, it has a price beat guarantee for competitor exchange rates.
Western Union, like Azimo, is focused on smaller transfers and making international payments simple and accessible for everyone. It offers more options, but at an extra cost.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of banks, insurers and product issuers. We value our editorial independence and follow editorial guidelines.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
