Default Transferring Money from UK to US

Hi all,

Tried to search but couldn't find a definitive answer. Looking to transfer £1000 from home to the US. Have used Paypal until now but they always delay the release. Can anyone suggest other options? I wasn't terribly sure if Western Union was still worth the hassle?

Search for Transferwise and you will find that it is very frequently recommended and used. There are many others but that seems to be the current favorite. I use it and can highly recommend it for ease of use, speed of transfer and among the best rates.

Second vote for Transferwise! I'm using it as my travel account and it currently holds 5 different currencies. Favourable rates too.

OK, but to avoid confusion you are referring to the Transferwise Borderless Account, not the direct money exchange service.
