I have been using Ria for more than 1.5 years now. I thought of giving my review on their services today to help new users decide if Ria would suite them. My experience with Ria is excellent so far. The processing time went down to 6-10 hours for normal transfers after using it for 6-8 times. I think they give you priority to old/regular customers. The rates are always great compared to others. I have used 4-5 different remittance services so far but no one is as good as Ria. They are also giving you $10 bonus gift card when you make your first transfer. Please use below my link to register. I'll get a $20 gift card after you complete your first money transfer with Ria! and you will get better rate and a $10 gift card.

Ria has been giving the best rate and the best services out of the many other services I have tried; like- Xoom, Remitly, Transfast,TransferWise. I have been using Ria for several years now.

I have always experienced good service from Ria. Sometimes it goes faster like 2-3 hrs, some time it takes 2-5 days depending on the exchange rate fluctuation. If the USD-INR exchange rate decreases they transfer it quickly, if the USD-INR exchange rate increases they delay in transfer. Except express transfer all carrier having the same fundamentals.

I used to send money to India using Xoom which instantly credited to my Punjab National Bank. After few transactions I tried using Ria. It took a day first and after that it took 3 to 4 hours for the credit to my ICICI NRE account. I had been using Ria for the past 3 years and now if the transfer is done from 9am to 5 pm IST the money gets transferred in 15 to 20 min max. The source Checking account is debited only on the next day or a day after. I have no experience on calling a customer support for any of my transactions

Saw few reviews which are rated much lower than what actually i have experienced with, hence writing mine. I am using Ria from close to 3 years, other than initial one or two transactions which took some time like 3 to 5 days, rest all my transactions completed overnight. Exchange rate compared to any other company, i found Ria is competitive and reliable. This is totally on what i noticed with my transactions.

This is the best service ever. The money always gets transferred instantaneously. Sometimes it has taken a day for me but most other times it happens within minutes. The best.

Never transfer with this,even though your account once verified, next transaction with ria take long time.I prefer Xoom...your translation complete deposit with in 10 minutes

Great. After my first few transfers, it is crediting money in few minutes( (few times just after click on sent money , i got money ) and competing transfer rate . I cannt think of using another site to transfer now.
