The best way to send money to Norway

The most common ways to transfer money to Norway are:  

  • Banks/credit unions
  • Cash transfer service
  • International payments specialists   

While it looks like you’re spoilt for choice, it’s essential to narrow down your options if you’re interested in cost-effectiveness, convenience, and speedy transfers. You may be familiar with your bank, but banks are usually not the most budget-friendly or time-efficient option.  

Similarly, using a cash transfer service can be a major inconvenience because the money must be deposited and collected in person. It’s also typically expensive and is better left as a method of last resort.  

The best option is to use a specialist international payments provider such as MTFX that offers maximum value for your money with competitive exchange rates and low transfer fees. You have 24/7 access to a secure online platform, foreign exchange tools, and expert help to enhance your international money transfer experience.

How much does it cost when sending money to Norway?

It is essential to safeguard your finances whether you transfer money to a Norwegian bank account or a service provider. That means understanding the costs involved and finding the most cost-effective way to send money abroad. Generally, the cost of sending money internationally boils down to the following:

Exchange rates: You’ll need to convert your Canadian dollars to Norwegian Krone so that you can transfer money to Norway. The more competitive the rate, the more you save during the conversion. By using a specialist service like MTFX that offers bank-beating rates (3-5% lower), the cost of international money transfers is significantly reduced. For example, you can save up to $1,500 when you transfer $30,000.  

Transfer fees: Opting for a lower transfer fee provided by a specialist service allows you to avoid the expensive fees charged by banks.

Hidden charges: Utilizing a secure online platform, such as the one offered by MTFX, ensures you have complete visibility over your international payments.

If you’re sending money to Norway online, the Canadian Dollar to Norwegian Krone exchange rate matters. Therefore, before you initiate the transfer, check the CAD/NOK exchange rate in real-time with MTFX’s rate calculator.

What bank details are needed to transfer money? 

When making an international money transfer to Norway, you need to have the following information on hand: 

  • Beneficiary's name 
  • Beneficiary's account number
  • Beneficiary's address 
  • Bank's name
  • Bank's address
  • Bank's swift code
  • Reason(s) for your transfer

Make sure to provide all the necessary information to ensure a smooth transaction.
