    "Ever since i started working in Europe i have tried almost all the money transfer services available in Europe to see which is the best. So far TransferWise is the best based on my experience as it provides a competitive exchange rate for EUR to INR with quick transfer. The best thing is that it provides free transfer for your first transfer transaction. Isn't that amazing?"

    "Honestly i was planning to try OrbitRemit for once only when i found out that your first transfer will be free. But after my first transfer transaction here i was convinced that i should use it more. However, this is only available in the UK not all over Europe"

    "Who wouldn't know about Western Union ayt? Almost most people use this to send money back home to their family. The downside though it isn't cheap. In my case, i use it to send the salary to my employees we outsourced who are based in India and working remotely at home. "
