Send Money Home, Securely and Affordably


Leaving your family behind to live in a strange country so you can earn more money is a huge sacrifice. You miss special moments, life’s milestones, and most of all, you miss them. You want to be sure that they know how much they mean to you and that you have them in your heart and on your mind.

When you make money through gig driving in a distant country, you want to share your earnings with family and friends overseas. Most transfer companies are well aware of this, and have been known to take advantage of drivers who want to send money to loved ones back home. They charge high fees, impose hidden charges, and don’t always offer the best exchange rates.

Here's what we cover:

Why is reliable and affordable money transfer important?

Companies that overcharge for transfers might not realize that giving immigrant communities access to trustworthy financial tools and resources helps them to make a huge difference in the lives of the people back home. The contributions immigrant workers make to the local communities where they live and work create positive changes, as well.

There are many transfer companies to choose from. Some have been around for a very long time, and tend to charge a lot, while others are relatively new on the scene, and might be cheap, but not so reliable. You need to have a service you can depend on and also easily afford. 

Finally, there is a safe, reliable, and affordable transfer company eager to serve gig drivers like you. Remitly wants you to have control over your transactions and be able to make them without losing a large percentage of your payment to unnecessary charges and fees. After all, the people waiting for the money you’re sending them can’t afford to get any less than you have promised.
