Rates/Fees from Singapore.

If you want to send money from Singapore to other country go to Western union Singapore. Unfortunately they do not have a link on their home page to check rates for money transfer from Singapore. If you want to send money online, then you can send to only a few major countries. For example to send money to Philippines from Singapore you will have to personally go to an agent location.

Western Union is expensive !

You must have noticed that Western Union is damn expensive (from my point of view. Other than being a trusted source, its main advantage is that money is available for pick up in minutes. Perhaps Western Union provides the fastest way to transfer money. However if there is no such great urgency, then it is possible to find other money transfer or remittance services to Singapore.
