First things first. Let’s talk money. When it comes to sending funds abroad, every penny matters.
We help our clients make savings on currency exchanges compared to the high street banks.

Established in 2000, Foreign Currency Direct has specialised in international bank transfers for over 19 years. It’s common practice to think of using your bank for transferring money overseas, but we exist because the banks don’t offer the kind of service our clients deserve. Whether it be the exchange rates they offer, or the ability to speak to someone on the phone. We’re here to help with all your currency needs, big or small – from house purchases to transferring money to family or friends.
Excellent service, clear and unambiguous advice and I was given an expert insight into currency fluctuations and the potential for gains as well as losses. Ultimately, they saved me money which is always a bonus when your uncertain about who to trust with your money. My advice? Don’t use your bank, it will save you thousands by using Foreign Currency Direct.
Having tried Transferwise and HiFx, Foreign Currency Direct is cheaper whilst still providing a very personal and professional service. I now wouldn’t use anybody else.
They are patient, constructive and always seem to look for the best possible way to assist their clients. Importantly, they do what they say they will do in the time frame they commit to. Emails and phone calls have a quick response – communication has always been excellent. Foreign Currency Direct plc will continue to be my first choice.
Good honest advice, simply the best.
Brilliant, fuss free service as always. They always deliver exactly what they say and in super fast timescales. Reliable, helpful and approachable.
FCD keep you informed and are there when you need to talk to them. Add to that the excellent rate and speed of transfer and you have the perfect company for your money.
Excellent experience every time. I always feel as though it is a personal service with the staff getting to know me as a person rather than just a customer. Special thanks to Dayle Littlejohn.
