The ability to send money online to an international destination, such as Romania, is a convenient way to deal with issues requiring the transfer of funds. If you need to send money to a relative in Romania, or pay for goods or services in the country, you can use a money transfer company to send the required funds. However, choosing a money transfer company can be a challenge if you have never sent money online to Romania. Consider choosing from Western Union, MoneyGram International and iKobo, as these companies have a fast network of agents worldwide.
Choose Western Union if you would like to use a reputable money transfer company with one of the largest networks of agents worldwide, including Romania. Your recipient in Romania can collect the funds within minutes of your completion of a Western Union transaction online at one of the many Western Union agent locations in the country. However, Western Union transaction fees are quite expensive.
Go with MoneyGram if you are looking for an affordable way to send money to Romania. The company has many agent locations across the world, including Romania. You may choose to use its “Test question and answer” option, which allows you to give your recipient a specific question and answer. Your recipient can receive the funds upon providing this information at a local agent location. However, a completed MoneyGram transaction could take up to 15 minutes before your recipient can collect the funds.
Use iKobo to send money to Romania if you would like to use a service that offers one of the most competitive transaction rates. The company sends a reloadable iKobo Visa card to your recipient upon completion of your transaction on the iKobo homepage; your recipient can use the card to collect the funds at any Visa ATM in Romania. IKobo's transaction fees are attractive, but access to Visa ATMs in certain parts of Romania can pose a problem.
