Hi, Monika Apr 28, 2004

Western Union. Not the cheapest one though but works like a charm:-) - I did wire money to Hungary and Czeck Republic (resorts, not subcontractors:-)), had no problems. Did it via WU Internet page. Takes anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour to see the money on the other end.

International wires from States to any bank account cost 30 dollars regardless of the amount. You need to do it before 11 am your time to have the money wired the same day, the rest depends on the other bank. In Italy the money were in place the same evening.

Sorry, left the wrong line in and had to go back to the message again:-)

To Hungary in particular, I'm sure, but I've found several services on the Net which let you transfer money to others countries - Portugal, for instance - in a way or another.

My favourite is www.MoneyBookers.com.

One of my clients regularly uses MomeyGram, since, she says, it's cheaper than Western Union, and I can tell you it works perfectly!

Depending on where you are, how regular your payments to other countries would be, and which those countries are, there is a sercive which is right for you - some people even like PayPal (which is not right to me . . .)

Anyway, you can read all about what I found of interest on the subject, here:

Thank you very much Jose Apr 28, 2004

Your information is very helpful indeed. Thank you! Sorry for not checking before opening this thread. I only checked one resource that I knew of, and it was not offered in Hungary. At that point, I got panicked and I opened this thread...

However, I would like to thank you both, Irene and Jose for your kind help, I really appreciate it. I will check all the resources that you gave to me and use the one that would be most convenient and safe. Have a great day!

Monika
