Why pick WorldRemit instead?
- Higher daily limit of $50,000 if sending by bank transfer
- Money can be sent to the recipient's door, bank account or mobile wallet as well as to a cash pick-up location
- Instant transfers available
While Ria's strength lies in its many cash pick-up locations, your currency may not be available or it might not be the cheapest option.
We've put together a list of some of the more popular alternatives to Ria below. Check them out to see if you could get lower fees and a better exchange rate elsewhere.
WorldRemit operates in almost the same range of countries as Ria and also has flexible options for receiving the money.
InstaReM uses the mid-market rate, meaning it won't add a margin to the rate, and you'll be getting the best exchange rate possible every time.
If you want to send more money than Ria's limit, OFX could be a good option for you.
WorldFirst doesn't have a maximum transfer limit, so it's a good option if you're looking to send a large amount of money.
Remitly offers a range of options for your receiver, including home delivery in some countries. Remitly also has an "on-time promise", which means the company will refund your money if it doesn't arrive on time.
MoneyGram sends money to over 200 countries and is one of the major players in the money transfer industry. If Ria doesn't support the currency you're after, there's a good chance MoneyGram will.
If you're still unsure, take a look at the table below. You can input how much you want to send in the calculator and you will be able to see the transfer details for some of the most popular money transfer companies.

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.
