Transferring funds from USA
Any experience with transferring funds from USA while living in Ireland? I have moved to Ireland and basically need to periodically move savings from US to my Irish bank account. My American bank (Wells Fargo) tells me I need to visit their branch to initiate a wire transfer which is hardly convenient. Does anybody have experience or ideas on this? Thanks
Apologies for the late response - been out of action for a few days...
I've used CurrencyFair a number of times with great success. It's fast, easy and cheap, and you will not need to go to any bank to perform the transaction. There are other options out there too, but for periodical exchanges I highly recommend them.
Yeah, I too have used TransferWise.
Also, for large transactions e.g. house buying funds, I have a personal contact that I refer people to. He will help you get the best rate, and offer a personalized currency exchange service. If you want he's details please email me.
