Credit card issues in Azerbaijan
You might think that sending your recipient a pre paid credit card is a wise choice. While this is a widely used method to send money to recipients all over the world it is not so much of a good idea for recipients who are in Azerbaijan. Unfortunately, credit cards are not accepted in many places which means that unless your recipient wants to spend their money in larger hotels or in restaurants sending one would be pointless. Instead look towards a currency transfer to Azerbaijan, that way your recipient will be able to get their money much easier.
Problems with ATMs in Azerbaijan
As Azerbaijan is very much a cash only country your recipient will need to be able to get the Azerbaijani Manat from their bank rather than from an ATM. Sending foreign currency for exchange at a bank, airport, hotel or bureau de change is not encouraged as it can easily go missing in the postal system.
Anyone who chooses to transfer money to Azerbaijan will find that they are able to save their recipient time as they will not have to search for an ATM to withdraw their funds.
Travellers cheques are not widely accepted in Azerbaijan
If you are thinking of sending travellers cheques to someone in Azerbaijan you will have to think again. They are not widely accepted and the exchange rate that your recipient might be offered for them could be very low. Avoid these problems by using an online tool to see the currency rate Azerbaijan currency attracts and get more for your money by transferring funds.
