Western Union - Send Money to PHILIPPINES - Rates, Fees, Locations or Branches

Western Union Money Transfer is a renowned and trusted way of sending money overseas or back to your home country. In this article you will find details on sending money to Philippines using Western Union. The biggest advantage of Western Union is that money that you send is available for pick up at an agent location within minutes. This is perhaps the quickest way of transferring money. Moreover, since Western Union has over 300,000 agent locations worldwide, it is quite likely that you will find a convenient agent location for the receiver to pick up the money.

Before I give an idea of how much does it cost to send money to Philippines by Western Union, let me recall some quick facts which you can also find in my posts Western Union-Rates, Fees, Locations and How to Send Money using Western Union.

  1. If you are sending money from United States, UK, Australia or some other select countries, you can use your Visa or MasterCard Credit Card to pay Western Union to send money to Philippines.
  2. You may also have an option to send money directly to a qualifying bank account of your receiver in Philippines using Western Union.
