Did you know...

By sending a Telegraphic Transfer in the beneficiary’s currency you generally receive greater certainty on your payment – you can effectively “lock-in” the exchange rate, and know exactly how much is being transferred.

When you make a transaction in AUD you may not know what a foreign bank will charge and what foreign exchange rate they will apply, and hence it may not be possible to find out how much will be credited to the beneficiary’s account.

We generally only suggest sending funds in Australian Dollars if the beneficiary holds an AUD account with the overseas bank; in all other cases, we suggest funds should be sent in the beneficiary’s (i.e. payee’s) currency.

When paying by credit card it may be difficult to find out how much it will cost you when the foreign exchange and other fees are applied to your transaction by the correspondent banks. You will find out when you see the final cost in your credit card statement.
