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

We currently compare 11 options available for sending money to France from the United States.

To send to a bank account in in France, the most competitive provider at the moment is OFX, with zero transfer fees and a very competitive USD-EUR conversion rate (current rate: 1 USD = 0.8851 EUR).

In comparison, you would pay a total cost of 38.02 USD (around 18x more expensive) if you wanted to use MoneyGram for the very same transfer.

For this transfer to France, it could be interesting to also consider two other competitive money transfer providers: InstaReM and Currencies Direct.

If the person you're sending money to wants to get in cash at an agent location in France, then the cheapest provider currently is Xoom, with competitive fees of 4.99 USD and a good USD-EUR conversion rate (currently at 1 USD = 0.8646 EUR).

When taking the exchange rate and the fees into account, the total cost of your transfer to a cash pick-up location in France with Xoom is 16.57 USD, but the total cost of your transfer would be 60.01 USD if you were to use MoneyGram to make the same transfer.

We're here to help

Pascal Briod

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!
