How it works

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

Transfer now!

Register for free to see our live exchange rates and make a transfer.


It only takes 2 minutes!

Your bank will take money in fees and unfair exchange rates when you move use them to make an international money transfer. They’re 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 easily, and we don’t charge transfer fees. It works like this:

    1. Register with us. It’s simple and only takes a couple of minutes

    2. Choose a currency and an amount, and tell us where to send it: You can transfer money to your own or another person’s bank account abroad (or directly to a business' bank account).

    3. Make your payment to us in your local currency. You can do this through a regular bank transfer, with your debit card or even with a cheque. 

    4. As soon as we receive your funds, we’ll send the money to your chosen bank account. And because we send the money from our in-country account, we don’t charge any transfer fees which saves you even more money.

That's it! Pretty simple, right? And you could end up saving thousands compared to using your bank.
