How do international money transfers work?

An international money transfer allows you to send money to a recipient overseas. Generally, a transfer involves you providing funds to a bank or an independent transfer provider, which then sends the money to your recipient in another country — in this case, Czech Republic. This can be done in person, over the phone, through a mobile app or online. You can use cash, a credit or debit card, or transfer funds from your bank account, which will then either be deposited into your recipient’s bank account or mobile wallet, or made available as cash for them to pick up at a location in their country.

How do I compare transfer companies when sending money to the Czech Republic?

When comparing transfer services for getting money to the Czech Republic, it’s important to consider the following factors:

  • Exchange rates. The aim is to find a service that combines low fees and competitive exchange rates. This may impact on the delivery time, but your choice depends on how urgently the money needs to get to your recipient.
  • Pick-up methods. Depending on what best suits the recipient, you can choose to have the money deposited directly into their bank account or have them collect it at the agency.
  • Transfer methods. Can transfers be placed online, over the phone, by visiting a branch and/or by using a mobile app?
  • Turnaround time. Some services can get the money to its destination within minutes, while others can take up to five business days. Often you incur a higher fee for faster delivery.
  • Minimum transfer amounts. Most transfer services specify a higher minimum amount when sending to certain countries.
  • Customer service. Is help available when you have a question regarding a transaction? Compare the availability of customer support options and hours.
