Manage your money on the go
The idea behind WorldRemit goes all the way back to 2014 when the founder of WorldRemit, Ismael Ahmed, decided to build a future for himself and fellow migrants who were looking for a better way to send money to their family and friends.
But WorldRemit doesn’t just let you send money to family and friends - you can send money to yourself when you travel.
You will benefit from sending funds to yourself with WorldRemit if you are:
- Travelling abroad for a holiday.
- Visiting friends and relatives.
- Studying abroad and receive money from family.
- Visiting friends and family back home.
- Freelancer working remotely.
- Or you simply need to create a transaction to yourself when you are abroad from time to time.
Practical online service
Our services run online. You can create, manage, amend and cancel transaction a transaction at any time: before you leave, while waiting at the airport or when you arrive at the destination. You chose!
A small amount of time spent on looking for the most convenient services we offer can save you a significant amount of money.
We provide upfront information about our fees, services and exchange rate on our website and mobile app – just check our FAQ.
Better exchange rate than at airports or local shops
Travellers who exchange money at the airport are accepting one of the lowest exchange rates on the market and are easily missing out on a big chunk of money.
Do it differently this time and we are confident that you will never look back.
WorldRemit offers you live exchange rates on a daily basis for a specific currency using our app. We’ll send you a notification every day to tell you how the rate’s looking. You can follow the exchange rates a few days before your trip and create a transaction with an exchange rate which fits you best.
And do we even have to mention that you won’t need to rush at the airport and queue up to get your money? No? We thought so.
Low fees and no ATM charges
Most worldwide transactions are still happening in a form of cash. When you are travelling abroad, especially to remote locations or less developed countries, you will need cash.
It’s always safer to carry smaller amounts of cash while travelling. But that will leave you to always look for an ATM and unreasonable exchange rate. At most cases, you will have to pay a foreign usage charge and pay fees for using the ATM.
You get to try us for free!
For everyone who wants to level up their personal finance abroad, we’ve got a deal which you simply cannot miss. Your first transaction will be entirely fee-free.
