Everything you need to know about transferring money to Australia

You’ve got questions? We have the answers. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about Australian money transfers.

1. What is the best way to transfer money to Australia from the UK?

Whether you’re sending a remittance or settling debt, the quickest and most convenient way to convert your money and transfer it to the UK would be online, via your UK debit card. All you have to do is charge your card on our website and, when you submit your transfer, your exchange rate will be locked in automatically. This ensures the rate you see is the rate you get.

Our international money transfers are guaranteed to be cheaper than any high street bank. In fact, we guarantee to beat your bank at international currency remittance to Australia - and every other destination too.

Our service is also faster and easier to use than traditional banks.
We offer great exchange rates, charge a small flat fee per transfer and absorb hidden costs along the way. We also guarantee that there will be no receiving fees when the funds arrive in your Australian bank account.

Yes, we do. Simply complete the “try our service for free” form above and we'll send you a voucher code for a free transfer. This is done so that you can test our money remittance service at no cost.

5. Can I transfer small amounts of money from UK to Australia?

We don't have a minimum or maximum transfer limit. You can transfer as little or as much as you like. There are, however, certain benefits to sending larger amounts. 

Please note: When transferring £10,000 (or foreign currency equivalent) or more in a single currency transaction, or £30,000 (or foreign currency equivalent) in a number of transactions over a 12-month rolling period, Sable International requires proof of “source of funds” as prescribed by HMRC’s Money Laundering Regulations.

6. How long will it take for my funds get to Australia?

We offer both “standard” and “speed” service transfers to Australia. Standard service transfers cost just £2, clear in one to three working days and are free for amounts over £2,000. Speed services cost £10 and are guaranteed to clear within one working day.

7. How are your exchange rates determined? Why are they better than the banks’ rate?

To get you the best rates, we canvass the market on your behalf, add a small margin to the rates we obtain and pass that rate on to you. The exchange rates we offer fall between the interbank rate (the truest exchange rate) and the rate offered by high street banks and bureaux de change.

We are able to undercut the high street banks and pass that saving on to you in the form of great rates. While the rates on our site are updated throughout the day, they must be viewed as indicative only.

8. How secure is the site?

Our site uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption to protect your transaction details. This 128-bit encryption is the latest and strongest data encryption technique commercially available for securing information between you, our client, and our website.

SSL works by encrypting/scrambling data from our website to your computer. The data is encrypted on our web server and can only be decrypted/unscrambled by the person with the correct decrypt/unscramble key. You can visually verify our site’s use of SSL in two places: The "s" in https in the site’s web address and by the padlock on the left-hand side of the address bar.
