Put simply, international money transfers allow you to send money to a designated recipient whether that be friends, family, or businesses overseas. It involves you sending one currency (e.g. GBP) to an intermediary transfer service which then exchanges those funds into a foreign currency (e.g. USD) and then transfers this money on to your recipient in another country.
