Sending money with Bendigo Bank: What to know
What we like
- Bank drafts. Bendigo Bank offers bank drafts in 16 different currencies for $10 (or $5 for bank shareholders). This can be a slower but more cost-effective way of sending money.
- Shareholder discounts. Bendigo Bank shareholders may be eligible for discounts on the cost of online money transfers.
What to watch out for
- High fees. Sending an international money transfer costs $30 online and off, plus correspondent bank fees. Receiving an international money transfer in your Bendigo Bank account will also incur a fee.
- Uncompetitive exchange rates. Bendigo Bank's exchange rates aren't as good as what's offered by some specialised money transfer services.
How do Bendigo Bank's exchange rates compare?
Bendigo Bank can be a relatively cost-effective money transfer option compared to other banks, especially if you want to use bank drafts. But even so, it's still not the most cost-effective option overall.
