Gerson FX: Save on International Money Transfers
Most people who move money internationally use their bank because it feels convenient.
However, they will normally have to pay bank charges and be reliant on their exchange rates.
The alternative is to use a specialist FX company, where you can remove the bank charges and receive a much better FX rate.
If you would like to use an FX company there are many out there to choose from, so we recommend you shop around and check their credentials.
Gerson Relocation have partnered with Western Union to provide you with a reduced rate from a reputable company who provide a regulated service which enables you to transfer money internationally.
Through Western Union, you save money on the bank charges, you get access to an adviser, the best FX rates (always check against the market to get your best deal with your WU adviser) and the peace assurance of the regulated and well established Western Union FX business.
