    I am looking for some trustworthy site that has better currency conversion rates than the banks.
    I would wire money to the company and they exchange it and wire it back in the new currency.

    Is there such a site?

    Yes.
    XE.com
    LMAX.com (over 50k)
    There are few more,google them and read reviews first.

    Yes but not for in-spot exchange.

    I've used lmax for currency trading.They are UK regulated by FCA

    XE.com offers the lowest fees and you lock in todays exchange rate even if you money arrive in 2 days to them.They have good reputation but always do your own homework.

    P.S I don't know where do you live but in some countries,there are currency exchange services/stores which offer better rates than banks.

    I know that site (I check it every day) but I didn't know they offered these services.

    XE is good for me. In general though, always avoid multiple small exchanges and try to do less bigger transactions to save money.

    I talked to the support. They don't accept my country. In fact they accept only like 10 countries.
    Other alternatives?
