I have recently tried out the services of International Currency Express for
transfering money to my bank in Switzerland, and I can highly recommend
If you are not in a hurry you can avoid paying high wire transfer fees. They
charge $ 10.00 for issuing a draft in Swiss Francs. For a wire transfer they
charge $20.00. Note that these fees are the same, regardless of the amount
What I liked about International Currency Express is the convenience. You
send them a fax or e-mail with your request and the beneficiary's name (no
ABA, SWIFT, IBAN, BLZ, Greek, Russian, whatever required) and a few days
later you receive the draft sent to your home. You can then send your check
to your bank in Switzerland yourself by (certified) mail. What is even
better, you can have the amount charged to your VISA or Mastercard, so you
can even get flyer miles on your money transfer and benefit from lsightly
better exchange rates!
