Studying abroad is expensive. You would like to pay the exact amount and the government taxes. Not a penny more. But banks and money exchangers charge a minimum of 2-6% when you use their services to send money abroad. The exchange rates they give you are made up daily rates and not the best. The tuition fee is usually in millions and if the rates are unfavourable, you end up way paying too much. These extra charges are frightening and burdensome on you.

Tips to Remember When Sending Money Abroad:

The RBI’s ombudsman suggests customers take care when sending money abroad and offers these tips.

Tip 1: Exchange rates change by the second – make sure you know the exchange rate. And the amount the recipient will receive so as to avoid unpleasant surprises;

Tip 2: You need to be absolutely certain about the account details of the recipient;

Tip 3: International banks can take longer to credit customers. If timing is important, make sure you know when the funds will arrive in the overseas account;

Tip 4: Complaints are rarely made about withdrawing money abroad. But the ombudsman suggests fixing the exchange rate for a fixed period to avoid getting stung during the transfer.
