Why should I send money abroad with Starling?

  • It’s easy. Transfer money abroad without leaving your banking app or using an extra transfer service.
  • It’s competitive. Our exchange rates and fees are some of the best on the market – and we’re always transparent, so you know exactly how much you’re spending.
  • It’s fast. Our standard send is usually speedy – but if you’re in a hurry, you can opt to make a direct SWIFT bank-to-bank transfer (for a slightly higher fee).
  • Send money to 38 countries in 20 currencies worldwide including euro, US dollar, rand, baht and zloty.

What if I only want to deal in euros?

If you’re all about the euro, then look no further than Starling’s euro account. You can hold, send and receive euros, all completely free of charge. Intrigued? Rightly so – take a look at the euro account.

About our fees

Our fees are always fair and transparent. We apply a 0.4% fee to the currency conversion and a small delivery fee to cover our costs.

Priority delivery with SWIFT

Need to get it there quickly? You can opt to make a direct bank-to-bank payment with SWIFT instead, for a flat delivery fee of £5.50.

Local network payment

Send your payment via a local partner – for some currencies, it can take a little longer, but prices start at just 30p per transfer.

  • No hidden fees
    Banks often add sneaky hidden fees of up to 5%. We don’t – you’ll know about any fees before you incur them. Your money, your decision – just how it should be.
  • A guaranteed rate
    We’ll guarantee your exchange rate for 30 seconds, which means you’ll get the exchange rate you’ve been quoted, even if it changes. It’s only fair.
