I am looking at the Transferwise borderless account to receive a smallish UK pension and then transfer to Canada.

Does anyone have any experience with it?

Currently I have my UK civil service pension paid into my pre-exisisting UK bank account and I transfer it using TW. It works brilliantly.

I'd have no qualms about the borderless account if my UK bank introduced another change that made my current method impractical.

Some of the other regular transfers or transferwise threads have posts from those who have actually used the Borderless account.

Thanks Bristol, i reviewed a lot of Transferwise posts and it looks like the best solution for me, i will use their borderless account to receive my pension and transfer it to my Canadian bank myself.
