How Do I Transfer Money Online?

Forums and chat sites frequented by Expats are constantly littered with questions like: “How do I send money home?” Absurdly, most of the advice received sends the questioner to the bank – probably the most expensive and inconvenient way to transfer money overseas!

“People wrongly assume that the bank is the best way to transfer money, when in reality it takes longer, it’s more expensive and you have to go into the bank to perform the transaction” says Ernst Janse van Rensburg, Forex Manager at 1st Contact.
