  Can I wire-transfer money to the states?
  Since a couple of years TransferWise.com is a cheap provider for transferring money to the USA. We tried it one time to transfer money from EUROPE to the UNITED STATES and it works fine.
It costs approx 0.5 % if you transfer EUR 1000. It costs up to 1.0 % if you transfer less money.
Before starting the online-transfer from
*** your bank account in Europe OR
*** your debit card OR
*** your credit card (additional 1.7 % fee)
you have to know:
  1. FIRST NAME AND FAMILY NAME of the account owner (Receiving Bank).
  2. ACCOUNT NUMBER at Receiving Bank.
  3. NAME OF THE RECEIVING BANK.
  4. BIC/Swift: of Receiving Bank.
  5. ABA/ACH Routing Number of Receiving Bank.
  6. Is the receiving account a CHECKING ACCOUNT? YES or NO. In doubt: YES.

An alternative to 'TransferWise.com' is 'Azimo.com', which is connected to FACEBOOK. But we have no experiences with it.
Another option is 'GIROXX'. They are be very cheap and have an excellent customer service.

  How I can pay the rental fee?
  In principle: Important is what is written in the contract regarding payment amount, respective currency and payment date and it is binding with respect on the DOWN PAYMENT, SECURITY DEPOSIT and FINAL BALANCE. If you want a different payment possibility (see below), then we ask you to mention this already in the contract.

  1. DOWN PAYMENT
    • Money transfer onto our Euro Account in Germany (we recommend it, if you living in Europe - exchange fee 3 Euros) or
    • US-Dollar-Check *) via postal mail to the landlord's representatives in the U.S.A. or
    • Credit Card **) (refer to our web site "Service") or
    • PayPal **)
    Please e-mail us about the above way to pay you picked. Don't forget to inform us. Only if we got the down payment the rental unit is 100% reserved for you.
  2. SECURITY DEPOSIT
    • Money transfer onto our Euro Account in Germany (we recommand if you live in Europe) or
    • a check in the currency of your country (e.g. USD, CHF)
    Please e-mail us about the above way to pay you picked. Don't forget to inform us.
  3. FINAL BALANCE
    • US-Dollar cash or
    • US-Dollar Checks *) or
    • Credit Card **) (look also at our Web-Site "Free Service") or
    • PayPal **)
    The FINAL BALANCE (together with the registration and cleaning fee) is either due the day after arrival in NAPLES and should be paid to the landlord's representative
    or
    six weeks prior the beginning of the rental period. The payment terms are fixed in the rental contract.

*) US-Dollar checks have to be sent to landlord's representative. Call us before to get the name for PAYABLE TO... The address you'll find at the bottom of the rental contract.

**) Credit Card or PayPal payment are possible. But you have to consider that you have to increase the amount by 4%. This percentage is what we have to pay to the Credit Card Company. If you have to pay by Credit Card in regards to travel insurance matters - pay only the down payment or $100 by Credit Card.
Example: Amount due = $100. Plus 4% credit card fee = Pay $104 by Credit Card.
