How to send money abroad, the easy way

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 34 countries in 17 currencies worldwide including euro, US dollar, rand and zloty.

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.

Our exchange rates explained

We know how important a great exchange rate is when you’re sending money abroad. Here’s how we keep ours competitive:

  • 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 fair rate

    The exchange rate we use is the actual market rate we are charged for buying and selling currencies. Use our currency converter calculator to work out the exchange rate.

  • 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.
