How Remitbee calculates the exchange rate
We understand how important your support for your loved ones in Sri Lanka. The majority of Remitbee's team members are immigrants, so we definitely feel about unfair banks and other companies with their high fees and low exchange rates. That's why we offer unbeatable CAD to LKR rates in Canada and free transfers over 500$. Remitbee is 100% transparent about any fees or costs, so you know your cost and final amount before sending money to Sri Lanka.
