Free options for international money transfers

Did you know that you can send money for free? For real, you can avoid the high costs of sending remittances and cash in general. Discover easy and free international money transfer options.

If you often send money abroad, fees can eat into your money account. Over time, they can add up significantly, and you might not even want to know the total. 

However, there are free solutions for international money transfers you might not yet have heard of. Skrill and Neteller are the two biggest players in the digital wallet field. 

With Skrill Neteller, you can send your money internationally for free, but not with regular accounts. To avoid fees, you need to upgrade your Skrill Neteller account.

The cost or fee associated with sending money internationally with Skrill varies depending on the amount being sent, the destination country and the type of Skrill account you have. Skrill's fees may encompass currency conversion charges, withdrawal fees, and transaction fees. 

Here are the fees for sending money internationally using a regular Skrill account:

Transaction Type Fee
International Transfer (Bank Transfer) Free
International Transfer (Debit card, Paysafecash, Bank transfer via Sofort/Klarna) Up to 1%
International Transfer (Credit card) Up to 2,99%
International Transfer in the same currency Up to 4.99%
International Transfer exchange rate mark-up Up to 4.99%

If these fees seem too high, keep reading to find out how to eliminate them.
