By combining effective management of exchange rates and an affordable transfer fee of RO1.70, Xpress Money now offers one of the lowest rates to customers in Oman who send money to India. It is also among the few remittance services to offer a flat fee for any amount sent via its network from Oman to India.
Pushpak Damania, Head-Business Development for Mena Afpak, Xpress Money, said: “India is the largest remittance receiving market in the world with inward remittances upwards of $64 billion in 2011. Since it is such a high volume market, we are tapping into the efficiencies of scale that our extensive networks in Oman and India can generate and passing on the savings to our customers. The holy month of Ramadan stands for sharing with the community, so we thought why not share this initiative with our customers, at this special time. Affordable

Xpress Money launches campaign on safe remittance
Xpress Money, engaged in money transfer business, has launched a State-wide campaign to educate people, particularly families whose kin make remittances from abroad, about risks involved in “illegitimate” means of money transfer.
In view of the fact that a large number of people make remittances in “unsafe” ways, the money trading firm has decided to educate consumers about safe remittance practices and legal means of money transfer besides creating awareness about the brand.
Districts to be covered:
The campaign was formally launched on Wednesday with flagging off of a canter that would cover all major remittance locations like Karimnagar, Adilabad, East and West Godavari district.
Xpress Money global marketing and communications head Vinesh Nair who launched the campaign said the money transfer firm adopted below the line approach in the State to enable meeting customers at their locations. A large number of families who receive remittances from abroad were low on awareness about safe remittances and hence, the campaign to reach out the grass root level, he said.
