What can I do with Travelex Wire?
Travelex Wire lets you make international money transfers from the UK to 39 countries. That is: set up an order and pay for it with your UK debit card, after which Travelex will set up your currency transfer and send it to the recipient’s bank account.
What do I need to get started?
Let’s start with the basics. To send money abroad with Travelex Wire, you’ll need:
-Your email address
-Your UK mobile number
-Your UK home address
-Your own UK issued debit card (Visa or MasterCard)
-The bank details of your recipient, including their full name, country specific bank details, and in some cases – depending on the country and delivery method you choose – their home address.
If you don’t have your recipient’s bank details readily to hand, you can always create your Travelex Wire account and come back later to complete your order.
What is the difference between Travelex International Payments and Travelex Wire?
Travelex Wire is the new money transfer service from Travelex, offering a low-cost way of sending money internationally. Travelex International Payments was an old service offered through our then partner OFX (formerly UKForex), and is no longer available through Travelex.
How much does it cost to make an international money transfer using Travelex Wire?
When you set up your order, you’ll be given a quote for the exchange rate and a fee for making the transfer. Due to the foreign exchange market changing constantly when open, you may find your quote changes as you are setting up your order. We’ll let you know the latest exchange rate before you confirm payment of your order, and we will confirm the exact exchange rate once your order is booked. The exact fee depends on the amount you wish to send. For orders up to and including £300 GBP, the fee is fixed at £3. For orders over £300, the fee is computed as a percentage of the amount you are sending, and will be clearly displayed to you within Travelex Wire.
How will the money appear in my recipient’s account?
In the majority of cases, the recipient will see a reference to our payment delivery partner (“Currency Cloud”). In some cases, the recipient’s name and the reference note you provided when you set up your order will also be included. We’ll do our best to ensure that it appears on the recipient's statement, but this cannot be guaranteed due to the nature of international money transfers. An international money transfer delivered by SWIFT is more likely to include the reference note but it’s still not guaranteed.
