WeTravel partners with industry leaders in order to send money transfers across the globe in the most efficient way possible. We process your payment via an international wire network when you send USD to countries outside of the US, GBP to countries outside the UK, EUR to banks that are not part of SEPA, etc.
International wires can be initiated in the "Payments" tab. To make an international wire, please go to your "Payments" page and click on "My Accounts".
Once in "My Accounts" click on "Initiate International Payout (Wire Transfer)".
On the next page, you will be able to enter all the payment details to initiate an international wire transfer:
All wire transfers will be manually verified, so please allow 3-5 business days for processing. The first wire to a new beneficiary usually takes a bit longer than a repeat wire due to the verification process.
The following sending fees apply to every international wire transfer depending on the currency you're using:
There also might be receiving and processing fees charged by the beneficiary bank and the intermediary bank before the funds reach your bank account. Unfortunately, this is beyond WeTravel’s control.

Wire Transfer FAQ

If you are wiring funds to the same beneficiary as before (i.e. repeat transfer), then you can just enter the following:
1. The beneficiary name
2. The currency
3. The 4 last digits of the beneficiary bank account number
4. The amount
5. Purpose of payment
6. Payment notes.
In the rest of the fields you can enter "as previous", we have saved the banking details in our backend.
Where can I send an international wire? Can I send it to any corporate or individual account via WeTravel?
Due to external compliance requirements, we can only send payments to tour operators, travel agencies and travel-related vendors. Our team will conduct due diligence checks on all the outgoing wire transfers to make sure your money is safe and protected. Keep in mind that we might ask you to provide us with a copy of the invoice or any other supporting documents when it comes to individuals (personas físicas).
Unsupported countries for international wires are North Korea, Cuba, Iran, Syria, Russia, Ukraine (including the Crimea region).
My international wire hasn't been received. How do I track my wire transfer and what are the next steps?
It takes 3-5 business days to receive a wire after you have successfully submitted the request. If you have not received the funds after 5 business days and haven't been contacted by our team with a request for additional information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with a confirmation receipt of your wire.
I sent a wire with the wrong bank account information. What happens now?
Everyone makes mistakes. Get in touch with us as soon as you notice the mistake - we might be able to amend the wire. If we have already processed the payment, then we will ask you to contact your recipient or your receiving bank and tell them about the mistake. Once the bank has returned the wire back to us, we will notify you immediately. You will be able to set up a new wire transfer on your account.
What if I want to cancel the wire that I initiated?
Please get in touch with us and let us know. We might be able to stop the payment if it hasn’t been processed yet.
Are there limits to how much I can send via international wire?
You can send up to $800K per wire. Sometimes we will need to ask for some extra information and documents from you in order to process the payment. If this is the case, we will get in touch by email and let you know exactly what you will need to do.
What will be shown on the receiving bank account statement?
Please note that the sender’s name on the recipient bank statement will appear as Wetravel Inc. or, in some cases, as Cambridge Mercantile Corp.
