Wise.com prides itself in transparency, and unlike other currency provider, you can actually view which fees and rates you are going to receive prior to your transfer. In fact, Wise is so fair, that a person moving £1,000 will get the same rates as someone who sending a million! The markups they apply are not volume-dependent which is great news for those who are sending small regular transfers abroad.
The below are indicative rates for Wise exchange rates on a variety of multiple currencies sampled JULY 2020. Since then Wise has slightly modified the spread it takes. You can view the current rates on Wise’s website.

Comparative View on Wise Rates/ Fees
Do you want to see how Transferwise rates and fees match up against competitors? View the following comparisons:
Essentially, we can say the following:
- Wise is the cheapest company for low-value transfers bar none.
- Their best routes are Pound-Euro. On the US Dollar they are not the cheapest, and Australian Dollar they are cheap but not as cheap.
- On large transfers, especially with our preferential rates, they are beaten by World First (only accepts businesses and online sellers but has a fixed rate structure which is better than Wise’s), as well as brokerages like Currencies Direct, Moneycorp and TorFX who can potentially beat Wise’s rates on larger transactions.
Also, it is important to remember that you will secure the LIVE rate only if you book a transfer and check the part that says “secure rate”. Else, the rate can fluctuate until the funds are received to cover the transfer.
