In 2000 our founder 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.

Highly competitive foreign exchange rates

Our team of specialist currency brokers work tirelessly every day to offer exchange rates that can beat high street bank rates and save our clients money on currency transfers.

Exchange rates move every two seconds and we operate in this live market, we don't provide an exchange rate for the day, or for the hour, we offer live rates that can lead to significant savings.

Expert personal service from our currency brokers

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. 

When you contact us you will talk to your own dedicated currency broker, someone who knows your situation and who you can trust to give you expert assistance with your currency transfer.


"Here at Foreign Currency Direct plc we are dedicated to providing a highly personalised, client-focussed currency exchange service. You will have one point of contact when dealing with us who will guide you through the whole trading process from start to finish, meaning your account manager can get to know you and understand your circumstances."
