How do I compare transfer companies when sending money to Serbia?

  • Exchange rates. Besides what you pay for the transfer service, it’s important to choose a service that offers a competitive exchange rate.
  • Pick-up methods. Check with your recipient to see which pick-up method would suit them best, especially if they’re not mobile or far from a pick-up location.
  • Fees. Even if a service offers a competitive exchange rate, make sure that you aren’t being charged service or conversion fees for the transfer. Sometimes a good exchange rate is negated by additional fees.
  • Turnaround time. Depending on how urgently your recipient needs the money, you can choose between services that offer instantaneous delivery (Western Union, for example) or those that make money available within one to three working days.
  • Transfer methods. The quickest way to send money is usually via online transfer, but you can also choose transactions handled over the phone, in person or through your bank.
  • Transfer options. Besides just a one-time transfer, you can also choose to set up regular scheduled payments, forward contracts (which allow you to lock in an ideal exchange rate now and transfer the money later) and market orders (which allow you to take advantage of changing market conditions by executing the money transfer when a certain exchange rate is met).
  • Minimum transfer amounts. Some services require that you send a minimum amount, for example, between 10 and 50. In some cases, fees are waived for transfers over a certain amount.

Foreign exchange rates explained

Exchange rate determines how much one currency will yield when traded for a different currency. The euro is strong against the Serbian dinar, which means you’ll be able to send more dinar for every euro you spend. Keep in mind that this amount can fluctuate due to inflation, interest rates and other economic factors.

Emergency cash transfers in Serbia

The RSD isn’t a widely traded currency, but you may still be able to complete a quick transfer if you find the right provider. However, it may mean you pay more in fees and receive a less-than-optimal exchange rate. If your recipient can wait, it may make more economic sense to use normal processing times so you can save on fees and your recipient can get more when the transfer does arrive.
