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 explainedWhen 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. Since the euro yields more when you exchange it for Singapore dollars, you can expect to be pay a little more than a dollar for each euro you need to send.
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 and lower exchange rates 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 more for less money with a normal money transfer.

- Only visit a transfer agent in a safe location.
