Most expats friends we know either use the traditional bank transfer methods, or multi-currency accounts that enable users to hold different currencies in one digital wallet, make international transactions relatively quickly and affordably including sending, receiving and withdrawing money in multiple currencies.
While those methods are all well and good, they may not offer you the best value in the long run.
In addition to considering the applicable currency conversion rates which fluctuate according to market conditions, the user usually bears a transaction fee for each transaction, which can vary according to the amount of transfer each time.
Manage & transfer money with ease
Here’s an alternative to converting and moving your money internationally!
Singtel Dash Remit offers an attractive and secure solution for those who need to send money overseas. Provided by SingCash Pte Ltd, licensed by Monetary Authority of Singapore and a subsidiary of Singtel (Singapore’s largest telecommunications provider), its international fund transfer service Dash Remit provides competitive exchange rates and fast transfers, and notably – with a low fixed fee.
For overseas money transfers to Australia and supported European countries (including United Kingdom), a fixed fee of only SGD4 per transaction is applicable. This means you can transfer any amount you wish (within the daily and monthly limits, of course)1 without worrying about paying more.
We like that the exchange rates and fees are shown in real-time on their app too, so you know exactly what you’ll be getting. For New Payment Platform enabled accounts to Australia, you can even receive your funds within the day, talk about efficiency!
