If you are transferring money abroad for the first time, say, to pay your son’s college tuition fee, you would have many questions regarding the player you can trust, costs involved, and so on. Especially if the amount you are going to transfer is large, you should wake up early and do thorough research on the pros and cons of various players in this segment.
