I use Transferwise for UK<>Chile transfers and never had any problems.

I've used Transferwise for a couple of years also without any problems. What's good about them is they give you live exchange rates and send the money in the recipient's local currency so you know the exact amounts you are sending and receiving.
They do make some of that up in fees but for me it is worth it. They are also fast with the transfers, usually one to two days, if you deposit money in an account with them prior to the transfer.
Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it.
