    HDFC quickremit is a horrible service, They take ages to trasnfer your money and keep holding your money for no reason. Customer service is one of the worst one i have ever seen.
    All these services managed by timesofmoney are horrible, keep clear of them. Use ICICI bank or SBI remit even if there conversion rate may be little less.

    It has been over 15days and the remittance I sent hasn’t been credited yet. The customer service ‘SUCKS’ and they want to me select an option that does not exist on their website nor their system would allow me do that (if I want to do that).

    The customer is keeping on sending me automated response and doesn’t seem to understand what they are doing. The quality also is atrocious as there is lot of background noise while talking to the customer service.

    ICICI Remit is very cheat.. Here is my experience.. ICICI having two options sending money from US, initially i transferred thru e-transfer ( there is no cost for this and day limit) for small amount and also after 5 days i initiated another larger amount wth power transfer (wire based) which will take 1 day to remit in india account. And both transfers reached same day and they gave good rate for lower amount and for large amount they gave 0.50/Rs difference rate ( less rate). I called them , then they are saying they will have 3 rates for a day and they will give what ever time they got the money I asked them how can you prove it ? They said they cant do any thing on that..

    Don't go with HDFC Quickremit , it is the worst ever money transfer service to India,
    i have used this for past 2 years , every time i had problem in each transaction , they deliberately hold the money for nothing. Customer service is worst, once u send money then for next one full month you have to call or email customer service. They cheat us by showing a good rate, but the reallity is they wont debit that rate, they will wait for the least possible rate for next few days and the least rate will be credited to your account that too if you are lucky otherwise money is gone.

    I have been using SBI remit ( ). On the "Transaction Confirmation" screen, when you are transferring, they show the estimated date of credit to the beneficiary account. They never missed even once. On the target all the time. I heard about ICICI remit that they get the money converted already and wait for the fluctuation in Rupee decrease) and then credit that day to make some unethical profit.

    HDFC quick remit sucks. I initiated remittance 10 ago and has not reached to my account in india. Their services sucks.
    And they dont have a point of contact except writing them an email for which they never response.
