Australia continues to be one of the top destinations for British clients emigrating abroad and so if you are one of the many people considering moving down under then there is a lot to consider! Something that can quite often be left to the last minute is how to transfer money to Australia. However, the exchange rate you get when you buy Australian Dollars can make a big difference to your move to Australia, especially when you’re transferring large sums of money.
Here at Foreign Currency Direct plc our experienced currency brokers can discuss your currency requirements and all the options available to you in plain English so you can make an informed decision as to when to buy Australian Dollars.
We offer a number of different contract options which can be tailored to our clients requirements. These options include a forward contract where for a small deposit you can secure the current Australian Dollar exchange rate for up to 1 year. This is perfect to help clients budget and take some of the risk out of the volatile currency market.
When it comes to transferring your money abroad and you are ready to buy Australian Dollars you follow a simple 3-step process and we’ll keep track of the AUD exchange rate so that you can make the best decision on when to transfer your money. That’s one less thing to worry about when preparing for your big move!
The savings we can offer versus using high street banks can be significant and can even add up to thousands of Australian Dollars on larger transfers.
We don't set a AUD exchange rate for the day or by the hour, we operate in the live market where exchange rates change every 2 seconds. When you speak with your personal currency broker they will offer you a live quote.
There are no hidden fees and no commission to pay for using our service to buy your Australian Dollars.
We make our money on the margins at which we buy and sell the currency – not by charging our customers a service fee.
The security of your money is our highest priority. We are a reliable and established currency provider registered with the FCA, having been in business since 2000.
Your funds are kept in client accounts with Lloyds Bank plc and are separate from Foreign Currency Direct's own funds.
Foreign Currency Direct doesn’t use call centres or an automated phone system.
When you phone us you call goes straight through to our team of currency brokers where you get a friendly, personal service from someone who is experienced in exchanging and transferring Pounds to Australian Dollars.
Our IPD (Irrevocable Payment Document) is internationally recognised proof of transfer of your Pounds to Australian Dollars exchange.
Comprehensive and clear, it was pioneered and trademarked by Foreign Currency Direct.
Excellent service would use anytime. Everyone was friendly helpful and the deal was made instantly. I got a very competitive rate Sterling to Australian just before Brexit. Thank you for being fast efficient and showing excellent integrity.
Excellent, fast service, good rates for Australia and quick transfer of funds. Personal service from a person I have dealt with before.
Daniel was not only informative but patient and gave us options on the lead up to our currency exchange (sale of UK property and moving to Oz). Daniel’s reviews enabled us to gain the maximum value reached this year on the exchange rates. This has made a huge difference to our monthly outgoings and has put us on the right foot for our start down under.
