Western union. Its offers better rate and even with the $2.99 fees you will get good exchange compared to others.

I am using xoom. Usually the transfer happens in few seconds (I usually see the money received in my Indian bank account in just few seconds of transfer) . It's little more expensive compare to other services, but definitely will give you peace of mind.
In the past I used other service like ria, but that usually takes few days to get the transction to go through. .

Try Remitly, RiaMoneyTransfer, xoom, Remit2India, TransferWise etc. and compare their rates.

Yeah I had started comparing the 3 xoom, remit2india and remitly. Remitly is giving best rate for new customers. Do you have personal experience with Remitly by any chance?

Yupe have been using Remitly from past 5 years so, no issues at all. Although I’m more inclining towards RiaMoneyTransfer these days. Rate is comparatively more and money is deposited in next half hour. However, do compare all of them and go with the one which has best rates
