What are the option you have to send money home from Cruise Ship
See here we have many options to send money or transfer money like: Money order, Money Gram, Wire Transfer, Remitly, Pay pal, Zoom, and Western Union, etc. But today I will explain to you the 3 best ways to send money home from Cruise Ship, Cargo Ship, Ferry, Tank Ship, etc.
1. Western Union Send Money
Western Union is one of the best ways to send money home from overseas. Western Union have their agents all around the world and it will be nearby you. The best thing is if you are working overseas and you want to send money than your first choice will be Western Union because they are very trusted and you can find them easily.
Western Union Customer Service
So if you are working overseas and if you want to send money by western union then please send by any western union agent which is easy to send money and easy to receive money.
But if you want to send online by yourself then my suggestion is big no because the western union will ask you every time verification which is very irritating and they took around 4 to 6 days to credit your amount.
Customer service is very very pathetic of western union, if you are facing any trouble about your money then you will not find a concern for people who can solve your problem. It’s my personal experience whenever I send money from overseas they always wait for my call verification which is very irritating for me.
Once I send $1500 USD and I wait for 10 days to credit my money in my account but its never credit than I call-in customer service. I talk all most all the staff on duty but can not find anyone who can verify my account and solve my problem. Next day I call again and speak with a lady, I think she was heading the department. I explain all the things that I was facing then she verify my account and credit the amount after 2 days in my account.
Western Union Fees
If you are sending a small amount then I will not suggest western union because their fees are very high. Like if I send $245 USD then they charged me $8 USD and If I send $985 then they charged me $10 which is quite too much.
