What are the solutions to send money to Switzerland?

One might instinctively think that bank is the best place to go to send money to Switzerland. They have had quite a good reputation for a long time after all! But you should forget the bank-to-bank option as even if they claim to do free transfer they end up being the most expensive solution.
There are two reasons for that:

  • Banks generally offer poor exchange rates and will not even communicate them.
  • Hidden fees apply most of the time

Be aware that using Western Union or Moneygram for example will not exempt you from paying hidden fees as well. Indeed, these solutions, as tempting as they might be, turn out to be as expensive as banks.
