Save time and money when making international transfers online
The Irish Times has partnered with Moneycorp to provide the Irish Times International Money Transfer Service
The service helps readers save when they send their money overseas. As well as offering bank beating exchange rates, the convenience of a Moneycorp online account can also save you time and effort with all your international money transfers.
Using the internet has made managing your personal finances more convenient than ever before. A 2013 survey by comparison site uSwitch has revealed that 68% of Irish internet users regularly go online to manage their finances.
This 24/7 easy access to financial management also lets you take control of your foreign exchange and international money transfer needs; you can manage your overseas transfers with a convenient online account with Moneycorp, the foreign exchange experts that provide the Irish Times International Money Transfer Service.
Not only is it more convenient, but you will save money as Moneycorp's exchange rates are more favourable than those offered by the banks. These could be as much as 2-4 per cent better, which makes a difference of thousands when exchanging large amounts, and often a saving of hundreds on smaller amounts.
The transfer fees are also far lower than those available at traditional high street banks. It can cost up to €40 a time to make currency transactions through a bank, whereas Moneycorp only charges between €5 and €15 to send funds abroad. If you're sending money overseas on a regular basis, this could save you hundreds a year on transfer fees alone.
As well as the savings made against a bank with exchange rates and transfer fees, making your international money transfers online with Moneycorp is a great way to take advantage of the currency markets, which never close, meaning exchange rates fluctuate 24/7.
