Many people pay high prices for currency exchange.  But they don’t need to.

Foreign Currency Direct was set up to do away with high prices.

In 2000 Peter S. Ellis, our Chief Executive, asked himself one question.  Why does it cost so much to transfer money abroad?  The answer is that it doesn’t need to.  That’s how Foreign Currency Direct began. And it’s how we work now.

Award-winning rates

Our award-winning rates of exchange can beat bank rates by up to 4%. That’s £400 saved on every £10,000 transferred. We do better than our competitors too. The Sunday Times named us best exchange rate provider for 3 consecutive years. This year the Telegraph.co.uk put us top too.

Expert personal service

Foreign Currency Direct was set up in a way that made it easy for people who know the financial world and those making a transaction for the first time.  That’s why you always talk to the same person, someone who knows your situation and who you trust to give you expert assistance.
