anyone that sends money to a fiance/e in Europe on a weekly basis must pay a lot in just fees and I'm sure transferring money from 1 bank account to the other probably average about 10 min us dollars per transaction.

I taught 9.99 I was paying western union was ridiculous to C.A. now I sent money to someone in Europe and that's a complete rip off.

Anyone with a love one in Europe should do with I did. I open a checking account with ally bank and mailed my fiancee the card now I only pay a 1 percent international fee to master card.

Ally doesn't charge any fees for atm world wide and they will reimburse fees from 3rd party bank and there's no min balance or fees.

To be honest me and mine use paypal. Both of us have a bank account linked to it and it makes it very easy to transfer money. The fees aren't that bad at all. The most I've ever sent was ~250 I think the fee was five dollars? It depends on how much you send obviously, but it's a lot cheaper. It does take longer, but if you get ahead of sending the payments it's not a problem at all.

Might be worth looking into? :)
