First and foremost I always had a great experience speaking with their customer service agents.  Exchange rate was always competitive and never fails to deliver on time for my love ones in the Philippines.  Lastly, they have introduced great innovations like Live chat assistance and Kabayan mobile apps to make my remittance faster and easier.  Salamat Kabayan Remit! I will definitely refer you to my family and friends here at UK.

Online transaction is convenient. however it takes 4-5 working days before my mum receives the remittance. This is not just one off experience for me but 3 consecutive months (Dec-Feb) other competitive remittance agencies only takes 24 hrs. when i phone up to make a follow up i only get a response of " RCBC hasn't validated it yet but kabayan already sent it." then when i phone up the RCBC branch (long distance call), they did not receive any transaction yet.
