CarigeGiros is the service to send money (US dollars) to friends and relatives living in Ecuador, without the need for a current account.
The service is:
- simple:the remittance can be instructed at any branch of Carige, by presenting a valid ID document
- fast: the beneficiary can withdraw funds on the same day they have been sent (in the maximum amount of USD 5,000 per month, in compliance with anti-money laundering regulations in force in Ecuador)
- convenient: the beneficiary is informed by a phone call from Banco Bolivariano (Carige's correspondent bank in Ecuador) and can withdraw money at the nearest branch or have the amount credited to the current account held at Banco Bolivariano
- cost-effective: the commission for sending money is extremely low and it is based on different pricing tiers in relation to the amount (up to EUR 25). For instance, to remit USD 300 the commission is only EUR 4. No charge is applied to the beneficiary.
