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

We currently compare 7 different options offering money transfers from the United States to Kenya.

If your recipient wants to receive in his bank account in Kenya, then the cheapest provider currently is TransferWise, with competitive fees of 5.21 USD and a very competitive USD-KES conversion rate (their current exchange rate is 1 USD = 101.05 KES).

If the recipient of the transfer wants to get in cash at an agent location in Kenya, then the most competitive option currently is Transfast, with zero transfer fees and a very competitive USD-KES exchange rate (their current rate is 1 USD = 98.93 KES).

The total cost of your transfer to a cash pick-up location in Kenya with Transfast is 6.06 USD, but the total cost of your transfer would be 22.79 USD if you wanted to use MoneyGram for the very 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!
