Need to transfer money to Austria? Considering a bank wire to transfer money to Austria? Before you ask your bank to organise it, make sure you check the wire transfer fees. It may come as a shock just what the fees and charges will be and depending on the amount of the transfer, it might be better to have a look at the alternatives to send the money by other means.
What makes worse is in addition to your bank charging a fee for sending the funds to a place in Austria, the person receiving the funds will possibly incur a fee from the bank where they have their account. One way to minimise the possibilty of this charge is to remit the international wire transfer in the currency of their account.
To make a bank wire transfer to Austria, you may require a SWIFT code. These are different for each bank and are based on things including the individual banking institution and country.
