International Money Transfer to Germany

International money transfer can be quite a hassle. Many banks and other providers charge hidden fees resulting in an expensive rate. On top of that, this can be a time-consuming process, taking several days until the recipient actually gets the money.

At Expatrio, we know that this is not exactly what you want to experience when having to send money via an international money transfer to Germany to set up your blocked account. That is why we have partnered with some of the best money transfer companies offering you quick transfers at transparent and cheaper fees than traditional banks. Check them out:

TransferWise - Global

TransferWise is a UK-based money transfer service which is operating since January 2011. Headquartered in London, they have offices in a number of cities including Tallinn, New York, Singapore and Budapest and support more than 750 currency routes across the world. In 2018, TransferWise reached 4 million customers and a monthly transfer volume of around $4 billion. Instead of taking the difference between inter-bank buy and sell rates for themselves like it is done for traditional currency transfers, TransferWise matches transfers with other people and then takes a small commission while using the inter-bank mid exchange rate. This is how they are able to offer you a cheap way to transfer funds internationally.

They describe themselves as follows: "TransferWise removes all the wrongness, letting people send money abroad at the lowest possible true cost. Using only real exchange rates and tiny not-hidden-fees. Headaches averted, and a revolution sparked."

InstaReM - Global

InstaReM (short for "Instant Remittance") developed a solution to provide a transparent service for overseas money transfer with close to live exchange rates. The company was incorporated in Singapore in August 2014 and is operating across Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Australia, India, the U.S. and Europe.

We will make it easy and simply share their story (a bit shortened of course): When Prajit Nanu, Co-Founder and CEO of InstaReM was booking a resort in Thailand, he was frustrated with the cumbersome process to transfer money overseas. He realized that international money transfers were expensive and nontransparent. Besides, paperwork and multiple touchpoints increased processing times and costs. Based on this experience he decided to change the process of international money transfers to the better - just like we did at Expatrio with the relocation process to Germany.
