The downside of international transfers with your bank
When you send or receive an international wire with your bank, you might lose money on a bad exchange rate and pay hidden fees as a result. That’s because the banks still use an old system to exchange money. We recommend you use TransferWise, which is usually much cheaper. With their smart technology:
- You get a great exchange rate and a low, upfront fee every time.
- You move your money as fast as the banks, and often faster – some currencies go through in minutes.
- Your money is protected with bank-level security.
- You join over 2 million customers who transfer in 47 currencies across 70 countries.
Certain part of the world, especially in the Europe, Middle East & Caribbean countries adopted to use International Bank Account Number (IBAN) for international fund transfer. Remember to use IBAN if you are doing fund transfer to these countries.
IBAN format is very long, and it can be up to 34 characters in length. In order to avoid a mistake, it is wise to validate IBAN number prior making international fund transfer.
It is possible to calculate IBAN from an existing bank account number by using online IBAN Calculator. The required informations are depending on the specific countries, but normally, account number, bank code and branch codes are needed.
