What are the best options for your transfer from the United Kingdom to the United States?

Monito compares 13 providers to send money from Switzerland to the United States.

If the person you're sending money to wants to receive in her bank account in the United States, then the most competitive provider at the moment is TransferWise, with 16.45 CHF for the transfer fees and a good CHF-USD exchange rate (currently at 1 CHF = 0.9975 USD).

The total cost of your transfer with TransferWise is 15.27 CHF, but the total cost of your transfer would be 160.45 CHF (which is approximately 11x as much) if you were to use PayPal to make the same transfer.

Two other competitive providers that could be interesting for your transfer are CurrencyFair and WorldRemit.

If the person you're sending money to wants to receive in cash in the United States, then Banque Cantonale Vaudoise is currently the cheapest provider with zero transfer fees and a good CHF-USD exchange rate (their current exchange rate is 1 CHF = 0.9533 USD).

Hi! I'm Pascal and I am in charge of making Monito as helpful as possible for you. Don't hesitate to drop me a line if you have a question, if you need help to understand the results or to find the best operator for your transfer.

Questions you may have

Yes. We only list money transfer operators or banks that are fully authorized and monitored by the regulation authorities of the countries where they operate.

Before each international money transfer, you should come and compare the costs of the different options on Monito, as they may have changed. Once you fill out the above form and click on compare, you’ll see a list of all the options to send money between two countries. The cheapest option is at the top, but you may want to consider other criteria such as the speed of transaction or the pay-in or pay-out methods.

Of course! Banks are usually not the best way to make international money transfers. The fees can be quite low (and sometimes even zero), but beware of the poor exchange rates which banks often apply. We list as many banks as possible in our results, so do compare to find out if you’d be better off switching to another bank or a specialized money transfer company.

Monito is not a money transfer company. We’re here to help you find the best way to send money abroad. Just tell us which country you’re sending money from and which country you want to send money to, and we’ll show you a list of all available services. Once you select the best one for your needs, you'll be redirected to their website to get started with your money transfer.

As much as we try to have complete information and to include as many money transfer companies in our results, we sometimes miss a few. In this case, the best solution would be to write us a short message to let us know what’s missing!
