Remitly offers far better exchange rate than ICICI and SBI


I just wanted to narrate my recent experience of transferring money to India and how dealing with Remitly was a breath of fresh air as compared to ICICI Bank Canada.

ICICI locks your account if you don't login for 3 months and it can be reactivated only by calling them. They walk you through a process and tell you that it will be active in 30 minutes. So inconvenient!

Moreover their call center agents are so unprofessional. When I asked a Toronto agent to connect me to his manager, he played a joke on me by transferring me to his female colleague and she kept telling me that she was not able to hear me.

I was so upset, I started looking at alternatives. SBI is no better alternative either and needed an account with them.

Then I found The process was so smooth that within 10 minutes I finished the transfer; I got an exchange rate two rupees higher than what ICICI and SBI were offering ; I didn't have to open an account; and got prompt follow up service.

I will never use ICICI Canada for anything ever. What a a bunch of unprofessional jokers!

Remitly is the best money transfer app to other banks like SBI, ICICI, and Axis. Send money online to India from Canada with fast speed, and Great exchange rates.
