Transfer $30,000 from Australia

There are plenty of reasons why you might need to send a large international money transfer. Some examples of why you may be sending money overseas include the following:

If you’re transferring a large sum like $30,000 overseas, shopping around to compare money transfer providers could save you a lot of money. Even a minor difference in exchange rates can have a huge impact on the total cost of your transfer, potentially saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

Many people automatically assume that the easiest way to send an international money transfer is via their bank. Unfortunately, banks usually offer a pretty bad deal when sending money overseas, offering some of the lowest exchange rates and the highest fees.

Specialist money transfer providers offer much better value for money when you need to transfer $30,000 overseas. Because these companies are currency exchange experts and have less overhead than the banks, they can provide much more competitive exchange rates and also tend to charge lower fees.

By comparing the prices from our panel of leading transfer providers, you’ll be able to find the best value for money when you send $30,000 overseas.

Why specialist transfer services offer a better deal than the banks

Brian runs a successful music store in Sydney. He needs to send AUD$30,000 to the United States to pay an outstanding debt to one of his main suppliers.

However, when he approaches his bank to handle the transaction, he’s disappointed to learn that the exchange rate on offer is well below the current interbank rate. In an effort to save money, Brian compares the cost of sending the transfer via his bank with the cost of using a specialist money transfer provider.

As you can see, thanks to its higher exchange rate, the specialist transfer provider allows Brian to send an extra US$1,145 when transferring AUD$30,000. He can also save AUD$18 in transfer fees.
