The rate you'll typically see when you do a general search is the ‘interbank rate'—the wholesale rate at which banks, and major financial institutions, buy and sell currency. This isn't available to companies or individuals.

At Currencies Direct we buy currency in bulk at wholesale rates and pass the savings to our customers.

The exchange rate changes every few seconds, but once we agree a rate with you that's the rate you'll get. 

You’ll agree the exchange rate in the app, online, or with your account manager. You’ll be asked to confirm if you’re happy to go ahead with that rate. Once you’ve committed to that rate it is fixed for you, no matter how much the market changes.

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. 

Yes. Not only do we have offices all over the world, we can certainly help you cash your US dollar check from overseas, reach out to us at [email protected].
