    Hi Ladies -

    Does anyone know an easy and affordable way to make wire transfers?

    I have to send both my resort and wedding coordinator deposits (they're both in the Riviera Maya) but I found out from my bank each wire transfer is $45 since it's international.

      Why do you have to pay via wire transfers? I can't recall how I paid, but I'm sure it was with a credit card or check...

        Which bank are you with? I did mine through CIBC and i think it cost me $20.00...maybe $30.00 the most. I had to do a wire transfer to the DR. you may want to try a money mart or soemthing like that?

          Ask your WC about credit card payments. That's how I did mine

            Don't they accept Paypal or a credit card? It would be so much easier for you, and probably safer.

                mine wanted wire transfer or check, but i was scared it'd get lost in the mail. wachovia charged me $25. could you do a money order? like western union or something?

                  Wow...$45 fee is steep..I went to my local foodstore (shoprite) here in NJ and they did the wire trasfer, with the printed tracking number/receipt (standard, I know) and the fee was about $25/$30, Keep in mind, the fee is based on the amount you are wiring...
                  Good luck!!

                    Hi Ana,
                    I'm a surprised that they want wire transfers from us! Did Luis tell you why they can't take a cc...I mean they do it to book rooms!
                    Anyway, I used Western Union to send my deposit to DJ Doremixx and it was pretty painless. I don't remember the exact cost but I'm sure that it was less than $45.

                      Hi Ana,
                      I use Wells Fargo, and they have a service called "Express Send" that allows you to transfer up to $1,500 to Mexico before they charge a fee. It takes a while because they confirm the account before they allow you to send money, but I really like that feature, since I rarely get an account with all of the correct information the first time.
