Global business,
local service

We've been helping people save time and money on their international currency transfers since 1996, and we're part of a group that handles more than €11bn in payments every year.

But while our reach is global, we believe in local expertise and a personal approach.

Whether you’re buying or selling Spanish property, transferring wages or a pension, covering living costs or sending money to loved ones, we have a service to suit.

Moving home?

If you're repatriating funds from Spain you can enjoy serious savings thanks to our exclusive partnership with CaixaBank.

While Spanish banks tend to charge up to 1.2% when processing large payments (including for raising or depositing a banker's draft for the sale of a property) by using us you can avoid these fees, potentially saving you thousands.

Authorised in the EU

After Brexit, UK entities had to obtain a new authorisation to operate in Spain and, under the current legislation, cannot do so without being authorised by a European regulator like the Bank of Spain. Please see our Compliance and Regulatory Guidance FAQs for more information.

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.

No. Our contracts are legally binding. Once you've confirmed your transfer (by phone, in branch, online or via our app) it can no longer be cancelled.

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.

Zero. We don't charge transfer fees.

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.
