Make the choice to maximise your money

Transferring money from one currency to another can be tricky, with highstreet banks and so many other options to choose from, you can easily get caught out with unnecessary hassle, poor exchange rates and unfair fees. Making the right decision is essential to avoid losing out on your money.

At Currencies Direct, we offer better exchange rates than the banks* and we have a strict ‘no transfer fees’ policy, unlike most others in our industry. Our currency specialists will also provide you expert guidance to ensure you choose the right transfer services and best time to send your money abroad.
