    Default Sending money to DR

    The cheapest way I have found to send money from the US to DR will cost me 15 US dollars to send 500. That is by using the Worldremit service online. It takes about 4 biz days to transfer from one bank account to another. Anybody find a cheaper way? Time is not an issue... I know its not that expensive but always looking for a better solution. Thanks for the help.

    I do not know a less expensive route. One of my credit unions used to charge $40 per international transfer, and it would post the next business day.

    Ría or any equivalent, i use víaexpress.
    5 chf ( more or less 5$ ) for up to 2000 chf sent. Same day, or at worse, next day delivered to your home in the dr. Or at a drop-off point of your choice ( bank, credit institution, caribe express, etc..... sometimes even a colmado or a ferrateria ).
    I have been using that system for 10+ years. You can send the money tosomeone, or if you prefer, toyourself.

    From a Western Union location, you can send almost $1000 USD for $8. Gets there within an hour.

    I agree with you; however, I thought that the OP was asking about a bank-to-bank transfer. Those tend to cost some coin.

    I agree with the suggestion of Xoom.com, very efficient. You can send money to yourself (or someone else) at Caribe Express
    Or a bank, Dollars or pesos.
