What's a telegraphic transfer?

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.
