Whether you have a friend or family member who needs a little help or are sending money to a visitor, transferring money from Ireland to Togo can be a simple process. You can use a money transfer service or go through a bank, but be sure to shop around before you decide so you can get the best exchange rates.

Banks versus money transfer companies

It’s cheaper and sometimes faster to use the services of a dedicated money transfer company. These providers specialize in handling overseas money transfers, offering attractive exchange rates and affordable transfer fees.

Find the right company by comparing these details

  • Exchange rates. How does the company’s exchange compare to the competition?
  • Fees. How much will you have to pay per transfer, and does this amount differ based on the amount you send or the transfer method you select?
  • Transfer methods. What do you need to do to place a transfer? Can you visit a website, make a phone call, visit a branch or use a smartphone app?
  • Transfer options. Can you lock in an ideal exchange rate now and transfer the money later, known as a forward contract? Does the institution offer limit orders, which allows you to take advantage of changing market conditions by executing the money transfer when a certain exchange rate is met? Can you schedule recurring payments?
  • Turnaround time. How long will the transfer take from the moment you hand over the cash to the moment your recipient can access the funds?
  • Minimum limit. If a minimum transfer limit applies, how high is it? Is there a maximum transfer limit?
  • Pickup methods. Can your beneficiary collect the cash from a transfer agent, or will they need to wait for it to be deposited into their bank account?
  • Customer service. Can you rely on phone, email and online customer support if you ever need help?

      • Ask a friend to join you when you go to pick up the cash.
      • Don’t display your cash in public.

Emergency cash transfers in Togo

You’ve just had an urgent phone call from your family in Togo — they need money as soon as possible to settle a debt. Sending an instant transfer is quite easy, but you will have to pay more. Make sure you closely check all the details of any transaction before you commit to it since the fees will likely be high. It’s not the best option, but when you’re in need, there are emergency services available.
