  • Competitive foreign currency exchange rates

    Better currency exchange rates than banks

    Our rates can beat bank rates by up to 4%. That’s £400 saved on every £10,000 transferred. The reason? We deal in high volumes, don’t go through intermediaries and don’t have the overheads of multiple outlets or high staffing costs.


    We can do better than our competitors too. That’s why over the years we have been named the best foreign exchange rate provider in the national press. Click here to see the latest article about us.

    Timing is crucial, especially when large amounts of money are involved. We keep you informed about what’s happening in the markets so that you can make an informed decision about when to trade. A small difference in the exchange rate can make a huge difference in your pocket.

    As well as getting highly competitive exchange rates, you’ll save by not paying commission or hidden fees.


    The only time we make a small charge is if your transaction is under £50,000. The charge for this is £15.00. Above that, there’s one free transfer per transaction.
