Why pick MoneyGram instead?
- Offers a wider range of currencies and countries
- Cash accepted at MoneyGram affiliates
- Offers minimum transfers as low as $1
Remitly aims to offer quick and cheap international money transfers, with a focus on remittances throughout Asia. It's known for low minimums, cash pick-ups in destination countries and quicker express transfers, but isn't always the cheapest and doesn't always have the best rates.

MoneyGram has almost the same range of countries and currencies as Western Union but tends to be cheaper, and it has a wider scope than Remitly. Much like Remitly, it's known for low minimums, cash options and fast transfers.
TorFX is a digital money transfer service. It's different to Remitly in that it only allows bank-to-bank transfers, has higher limits and has no fees.
WorldFirst offers no fees and competitive rates and unlike some other digital money services, it can still do same-day transfers to some currencies.
OFX is a large and well-known transfer service, focused largely on business transfers. But you can also use it for personal money transfers to take advantage of its competitive rates. Its $250 minimum transfer size is larger than some, but still much more accessible than many other providers.
XE Money Transfers is focused on offering competitive rates across a wide range of currencies and countries, although there are some gaps in its offerings. Unlike Remitly, it doesn't charge any fees.
TransferWise is one of very few providers to offer money transfers at mid-market rates. Instead of benefiting from foreign exchange margins, its fees consist of a percentage of your transfer, plus a few dollar flat fee.
InstaReM also offers mid-market rates on its money transfers and charges simple, clear fees instead. However, it has a limited range of currencies and offers bank-to-bank transfers only.
Western Union is the world's oldest and largest money transfer service. Like Remitly, it's known for low minimums and cash pick-up options and is largely focused on handling remittances.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
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. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
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 and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
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.
