TRY refunds

In most cases, TransferWise can refund TRY bank transfer payments as long as we have your money and your transfer has not yet been completed. 

The refund must be sent back to the account it came from. So, we may ask for your bank account details to return your money. We will need your IBAN, BIC code and name. Once you give us these details, refunds take 0–1 working days to appear back in your account. ​
