Supporting your family back in India is extremely important, and we understand that getting that money into their bank account shouldn't be overcomplicated, difficult or costly. Your loved ones may be over 7,000 miles away, but that shouldn't mean you can't stay connected or support them financially.
It might be your parents who you want to give something back to, or it could be offering financial help to your siblings or cousins who need it back home. Whatever your individual circumstance is, let Western Union help.
So you are probably asking: what service is best for me?
Those emergencies back home can be extremely stressful, especially if you feel like you can't do anything here in the UK. Those medical costs that need covering or a last-minute offering for Diwali - you will need to send cash in a flash.
Well now you can transfer money to India in minutes1. You can either do it at your nearest Agent location, or more discreetly and quickly online. Pay on your card and the cash can be directly picked up at their nearest Agent location.

We know that supporting your loved ones regularly is important to you. Or it might be that you are building yourself a nice savings nest in India for later retirement or your daughter's future wedding, which will undoubtedly be very expensive.
If you are planning to send large amounts of money regularly, and you're not in a hurry, you can also transfer money from your UK bank account to another in India. These transactions need at least one business day to clear.

Safety and security of personal information is of paramount importance to us, so you will be able to support your loved ones knowing that all your information and money is in good hands.
With any of these options, you can organise your money transfer in person at our Agent locations if you would prefer to do it face-to-face or online, or even on your mobile with our app if you're on the go. We all have busy lives, but that should never be a reason not to support your family in India.
