Default Xoom.com is fast

I was fed up with Remit2india, I last one month I am trying Xoom.com, it transfers in 24 hours and sometime 10 hours. Rate is fractional less but much better than ICICI

Good thing with Xoom is above $ 1000 its fee free. Western Union charges about $ 5 per transaction.

I am using IndusFastRemit . Not as fast as Xoom (takes about 10 days for first transfer and 5 days there after) but much beter exchange rate and zero fee for any amount.

Default Use Wells Fargo ExpressSend

If you are a wellsfargo account holder, you can send money to ICICI or HDFC banks in India. They send the money in one day and give a good rate. You know the rate when you are transferring the money. No gimmicks like ICICI.

They have a limit of 12K per 30 days.

Xoom is very good. But they do not transfer to NRE accounts.
Unfortunately, SBI stopped their service from US-India. It used to be good, though not as fast as Xoom.

Both are free.

Default SBI New York Branch Best

The best is SBI NY Branch, they will give best rates of all, all you need to have an account with New York Branch with 1K USD balance to avoid fees, but transfers are free and the rate what you see what you get, money will be credited into Indian branch early morning 8 AM (India Time) for SBI branches not sure for other but for sure within 24 hurs.

Their customer service also improved a lot.
