Processing time: 3 to 5 business days. Fees: Free.
  2. Remit2India Rupee Express - A faster online way of transferring money but with higher fees. (in my opinion, not worth it). Processing time: 3 business days. Fees: 1.5% of your remittance amount plus a small transaction fee.

  6. Remit2India Axis Bank Remittance Card - There is also an option which you wont find easily on Remit2India website but can find it on Axis Bank Remit. In this option a Visa debit card is send to the beneficiary where he/she can withdraw upto Rs. 40,000 per month from any ATM.

Cost Comparison of Remit2India with other ACH money transfer services.
I have found that the exchange rates of Remit2India are comparable but slightly lower than SBI Express Remit forex rates. However more options are available for sending money from Remit2Inida. Thus if you are looking for better interest rates and are not worried about all the above options of sending money to india, you may also be interested in trying SBI remittance.

    I really had a very bad bad bad experience with Remit2India and their associated companies like axisremit, timesofmoney etc. They usually claim that the remittance would happen in 3 business days. But it is all trash. Usually it takes a minimum of 10 days. If you try to call the customer service, they will tell beautiful stories. Me and my best friend and his colleague had the same kind of experience and even worser than this.

    Be aware of these companies.

    Never ever use Axisremit for transferring money to India. To transfer our money they show hell to the customers. Service is horrible,

    Lot of people had very bad experience with them.

    Best one is SBI or ICICI.
