I live in Canada, a relative of mine lives in the U.K. I would like to know the best option for sending small amounts of money approximately once a month. I'm thinking most likely $100 to $300, but for the sake of this question, would be interested in knowing if anything changes at up to $1000.
Time-in-transit is not a significant drawback. An option that takes three weeks but costs slightly less is better than an instantaneous option. However, ease-of-use is a significant concern. I'd much rather be able to do the regular transfers online if possible.
