I personally use two different banks they vary on wire prices just for the
range

Digital Fed. Credit Union is: Sent in Foreign Currency - $40 Sent in US
Currency - $50
Bank of America: International wire transfer sent in US dollars cost $45.
International wire transfer sent in foreign currency cost $35.
