Authorised in the EU.

When you’re moving money abroad, knowing it’s in safe hands is everything.

Since the UK left the European Union, all financial companies operating in the EU need to be licensed by an EU authority. If a foreign exchange provider isn’t licensed to work in the EU, then their customers may not be fully protected.

We're authorised by the Bank of Spain as an Electronic Money
Institution (Registration no. 6716) in the EU, and by the FCA (FRN 900669) in the UK, meaning we’re fully licensed to operate in Spain and throughout the European Union.

Regulated and reliable

Regulated, reliable, always in safe hands.

In addition to the EU and the UK, we’re also regulated in the US, Australia and South Africa, transacting around €11.5bn every year in 40+ currencies and 120+ countries.

As part of our regulation, we’re required to safeguard your money through stringent security measures and compliance procedures. The security of your funds is our top priority.

We’re also here to offer guidance, support and information if you ever have any questions or concerns about fund security or safeguarding.

Frequently asked questions.

We’re authorised by the FCA in the UK, and by the Bank of Spain in the EU. We also operate segregated client accounts and hold the highest credit rating with Dun & Bradstreet, so you can rest easy in the knowledge that your funds will be in safe hands. 

Our competitive exchange rates and lack of transfer fees mean more of your money reaches its intended destination without unnecessary deductions. Additionally, our expert currency specialists can provide guidance on timing your transactions to take advantage of favourable exchange rate movements, potentially saving you even more.

For most transfers there are no fees, however there may be fees applied when using our Batchpay service.

Whatever works for you – app, online, or talking to one of our experts over the phone or in person. And you can pay for your transfer by bank transfer or debit card. 

How long a currency transfer takes depends on the currency, destination and receiving bank. Funds are typically transferred within 24 hours or within no more than two working days.

We buy currency in bulk at wholesale rates not available to companies or individuals. We add a small margin before selling the currency on at rates that are typically more competitive than the banks. 

We strive to offer you the most competitive exchange rates possible, which is why we continuously monitor the market to ensure that our rates remain favourable for our clients.

At Currencies Direct, we facilitate foreign currency receipts from your clients seamlessly. Whether it's payments for goods, services, or any other transactions, our platform allows you to receive funds in various foreign currencies efficiently.

You can add funds to your digital currency wallet from any GBP or EUR debit card.

Whether it's urgent payments, payroll processing, or any other time-sensitive transactions, our spot transfers ensure that your funds reach their destination without delay.

Our multi-currency debit card is only available to our personal clients. If you would like to spend seamlessly in 40+ countries, you can create a personal account here.

Using a forward contract you can fix an exchange rate for up to a year. While you will miss out if the exchange rate improves, your transfer will be protected from any unfavourable movement.

There are several benefits to choosing Currencies Direct, including competitive exchange rates, award winning customer support and bespoke risk management solutions.

The minimum and maximum transfer limits vary depending on whether you're conducting your transfer online or over the phone. If arranging a payment through our online platform you can transfer a minimum of €10 and a maximum of €50,000.

If you need to transfer more than that our team can provide personalised assistance to meet your specific needs. There's no upper limit on how much you can transfer.
