What are my options for sending money from Ireland to Montenegro?

  • Specialist transfer providers. Companies such as OFX and CurrencyFair offer fast and affordable overseas transfers.
  • Cash pickup transfer companies. MoneyGram and Western Union are the world’s two largest providers that allow your recipient to pick up cash wherever they live in Montenegro.
  • Bank transfers. Bank transfers can be useful if you know you’ll be sending a lot of money and want it sent directly to your recipient’s bank account.
  • International checks. Safe but slow, you can always mail an international check to Montenegro.

Banks versus money transfer companies

Instead of sending funds through your bank, compare your options to see whether you can find a more affordable deal from a money transfer company, such as OFX or CurrencyFair. These providers trade high volumes of foreign currency and may be able to offer much better exchange rates than banks. They also charge lower fees, so finding the right transfer provider can save you money.

Foreign exchange rates explained

When you want to send money to another country, you’ll need to take into account the exchange rate you’re being offered by your provider. It can change daily and is influenced by a number of factors, including the global economy and inflation. Even though Montenegro isn’t a member of the EU, it still uses the euro as a currency.

Emergency cash transfers to Montenegro

When you need to get money to a friend or loved one in Montenegro as quickly as possible, an emergency cash transfer is the way to go. Some companies offer overseas transfers that can be completed within minutes. This may be extremely convenient, but make sure you’re aware of the cost. High transaction fees usually apply so review the full cost of a transaction before you commit. If your recipient can wait even a day, you may be able to send money with a normal money transfer.

Tips for picking up cash in Montenegro

Regardless of whether you’re in Montenegro or Ireland, it always pays to take a few simple safety precautions when picking up cash.

  • Only visit a transfer agent in a safe location.
  • Avoid high-crime areas and avoid displaying your cash in public.
  • Take a friend along with you to act as a deterrent to thieves.
  • Don’t carry the money around with you for any longer than is necessary.
