Monito compares 7 different money transfer providers to send money from the United Kingdom to Mauritius.
If your recipient wants to receive in a bank account in Mauritius, then the most competitive option is currently Xendpay, with competitive fees of 2.76 GBP and a good GBP-MUR exchange rate (currently at 1 GBP = 49 MUR).
In comparison, the total cost would be 48.61 GBP (approximately 8x more expensive) if you selected to use Barclays to make the same transaction.
Two other competitive providers to consider include HSBC and Lloyds.
If the beneficiary of your transfer wants to get in cash where they live in Mauritius, then MoneyGram is currently most competitive provider with 9.7 GBP for the transfer fees and a very competitive GBP-MUR exchange rate (their current rate is 1 GBP = 43.5083 MUR).
Adding the fees and exchange rate margin, the total cost for a cash transfer with MoneyGram is 16.69 GBP, but the total cost of your transfer would be 23.43 GBP if you chose to use Western Union for the very same transfer to a cash pick-up location.

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.
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!
