Is there a fee to use Flywire?

The exchange rates you may find online are mid-market rates, which are not available to individuals.  Instead, mid-market rates are the published rates for currency purchases for large volume traders.  Please contact Flywire's customer service team with any pricing concerns.  If you found a lower rate with your local bank transfer payments,  Flywire offers a best rate guarantee that will match your bank's offer.

Please refer to the Best Price Guarantee for Bank Transfers page on the Flywire website for more information.
