At Xe, we’re always striving to improve so we can give our customers the best money transfer experience possible. And we’re pleased to say that if you’re planning on sending money to Turkey, we’ve made some great new improvements to your experience.

We recently aligned with our sister company Ria Money Transfer, to improve our money transfers. Now, we can send our money transfers to Turkey through Ria’s channels. 

This means that from now on, your money transfers to Turkey will be:

  1. Much faster than before

  2. At new, competitive exchange rates

  3. With no third-party fees.

What’s new about our money transfers to Turkey?

Before introducing these new improvements, you could expect the following experience when sending money to Turkey:

  • Your money would typically reach Turkey within 1-4 business days.

  • Your exchange rate depended on currency market motion.

  • You may have been charged additional fees from intermediaries in the transfer process.

But that’s not the case anymore. Now, when you send money to Turkey, this is what you’ll experience:

  • Your money will arrive more quickly. No need to wait days. With our new transfer channels, your money will reach Turkey within 24 hours.

  • New, competitive rates. Our new transfers will give you fair, competitive rates for your coming exchanges, straight from the live currency markets.

  • No third-party fees. Now that we’re using our own channels to send you transfers, there won’t be any intermediaries involved. What does that mean? It means no extra fees hidden throughout the transfer process. What you see is what you get.
