Get more from your overseas transfers and payments

With no transfer fees and bank-beating exchange rates foreign exchange companies can save you up to 5% on your international payment transfers.

Foreign exchange specialists change money from one currency into another, and unlike the banks, there don’t hide charges and their exchange rates are always bank-beating.

Rates that get results for you

Whether it’s a one-off payment, or long-term regular payments you need to make, there will be currency experts there to help you every step of the way, giving you complete peace of mind.

Let’s see some examples:

  • Matthew Connelly decided to emigrate to Australia and found a property he wanted to buy at $520,000. Transferring his money with the bank would have cost him £305,932 whereas Currencies Direct would only cost £288,889. Our rates saved him £17,018* - that’s enough for him to build an extension!
  • Or Mary Simpson, who didn’t feel she was getting the most from her payments using a bank. Sally was regularly transferring large sums of her savings and each time the bank was charging her transfer fees. Now Sally has no transfer fees and a currency expert to guide her through making her monthly transfer to ensure she gets the most from her money.
