Cheapest way to transfer money to Canada

Hey Everyone,

Hoping to get some valuable insight from you folks on this topic.

I am coming to Switzerland to work a contract and still have things to pay for in Canada. How would I go about transferring CH over to a family member who will be managing my assets in my absence?

I'm looking for the cheapest option but I welcome all input.

Search the forums for CurrencyFair and TransferWise. I started off using TransferWise, but have recently started using CurrencyFair, and although similar, prefer the tool of the two.

If you are interested in joining either, PM me for a invitation URL from which we can both benefit.

I am interested in this thread: Have used UKforex for UK - Canada and NZ- Canada transfers. Will also be checking out what is best for Switzerland -Canada

Can anyone, please, invite me to Currencyfair? I see that Transferwise doesn't have CAD transactions at the moment.

Thank you!

Re: Cheapest way to transfer money to Canada

Hi

Has anyone used Canadianforex? How does it compare? I'm looking for a legit, safe way to transfer money outside of using the big banks...this is my first money transfer and it's a bit intimidating!

Thanks!

Re: Cheapest way to transfer money to Canada

I use western union to transfer the money regularly from my credit card directly to my bank account. Somehow they do not have transfer fee nowadays, and the exchange rate is not bad at all. Mostly much better than WorldRemit.
