How to send money from South Africa to UK at the best rate?

To send rands to a bank account in Pounds sterling in UK, the cheapest option is currently Xendpay, with 188.01 ZAR for the transfer fees and a very competitive ZAR-GBP exchange rate (current rate: 1 ZAR = 0.0502 GBP).

The total cost of your transfer with Xendpay is 214.92 ZAR, but you would pay a total cost of 410.74 ZAR (which is roughly 2x more expensive) if you were to use CurrencyFair for the very same transaction.

Affiliate Disclosure
Instead of banner ads and paywalls, Monito makes money through affiliate links to the various payment service providers featured on our website. While we work hard to scout the market for the best deals, we're unable to consider every possible product available to you. Our extensive range of trusted affiliate partners enables us to make detailed, unbiased, and solution-driven recommendations for all types of consumer questions and problems. This allows us to match our users with the right providers to suit their needs and, in doing so, match our providers with new customers, creating a win-win for everybody involved. However, while some links on Monito may indeed earn us a commission, this fact never impacts the independence and integrity of our opinions, recommendations, and evaluations.
