There are several ways in which you can make an international money transfer, but typically this is not done at your post office! However, you do need to know as much as you can about this because there are fees associated with it and they can be very different from one service to the next. Therefore, begin your research early before you need to actually transfer the money that way you know what fees are associated with exchange and can plan accordingly.

You have several different choices when it comes to international money transfer. First, and probably the most used in the past is going to your bank and paying whatever fees they are charging. You can also use an exchange service that is often cheaper than your bank, but fees do depend on the service so this will need a bit of researching on your part to see who has the best fees. You can choose the company or bank of your choice just as long as you understand and agree (by signature) to the fees that is being charged to you.

Keep in mind that while many people think that a bank is the best place to do an international money transfer, this will depend on where the bank is located. For instance, if the bank you are considering is located where very little foreign exchange would ever take place, the bank may not be your best resource for doing the exchange. On the other hand, if the bank is in an area where currency exchange is done often, they could be your best option. A bank that does more foreign exchange will have more experienced and be more seasoned professionals at all things relating to exchange.

When it comes to international money transfer, it has become a very common practice and no longer looked at as "rare" since many people send money to different countries for personal reasons or business. You can find that with a bit of research you will able to decide who has the best rates which can save you money in the long run.
