Transferring money to a European bank account from the US

Jump to last reply

We've done lots of house/apartment rentals before, and all owners have their own payment methods. I've sent a personal check as a deposit, paid through paypal, used a credit card and just shown up with all the cash.

This time the owner wants us to make a bank transfer directly into her account which I am suspecting might be an expensive hassle. Whether or not it makes a difference, this is a last minute arrangement and we will be there next week.

We live in the US. What has been your experience with this type of transaction? Is it a huge hassle? And, about what am I probably looking at for bank fees?
