How it works

When you want to send money overseas, who does that money belong to? Really – it’s a serious question. Ideally the answer would be that it’s you… but not everybody agrees. Especially your bank!

Beat the banks!
Save up to 5% on overseas transfers


It only takes 2 minutes!

During an international money transfer, your bank will take up to 5% of that money in fees and charges. They’re also not in any rush to get it done either.
Here at Currencies Direct, we’re a bit different. We change money from one currency to another quickly and simply, and we don’t charge transfer fees. It works like this:

  1. Join. It's quick and easy, with no obligation 
  2. Choose a currency and an amount, and tell us where to send it
  3. Make your payment to us
  4. We’ll send the funds as soon as we receive your payment 

That’s pretty simple. And you’ll probably save a nice amount of money too.
