Thinking of buying a property in France, or are you already living the expat life and need to transfer money to France to pay bills? Getting a competitive exchange rate makes an enormous difference when you are making regular transfers or sending large sums. We can offer you a competitive Euro exchange rate when you are sending money to France.
There’s enough to worry about when you are moving to a different country or furnishing your holiday home. Our simple process makes sending money to France quick, simple and stress-free. We have been helping people make the move to France for many years, since our beginnings in 2000. On top of our years of experience we also work closely with many of the leading French immobilier and notaires.
Our service is designed to take the stress, hassle and unnecessary costs out of overseas money transfers.
Clients looking to make an international money transfer can save money compared to the high street banks by using our service. In fact, our competitive exchange rates are something we are very proud of.
As well as getting competitive exchange rates, you’ll save by not paying any hidden fees. We make our money on the margins at which we buy and sell the currency.
We will only make a small additional charge of £15 if your transaction is under £50,000.
The security of your money is something we take seriously. We’re authorised as an e-money institution by the Financial Conduct Authority, which means we’re required to safeguard your money by keeping it in segregated accounts. We hold these with trusted mainstream banks, and because we’re an authorised e-money institution, you can keep your currency with us until you need to make a payment.
Every time you call us you will speak to your own Account Manager – someone who knows your situation and is fully aware of what you are trying to achieve.
The transfer of your money will be handled by your dedicated Account Manager, who will be on hand to provide assistance and answer any questions you may have.
Reliable service, good rate and fantastic consultants. We live partly in France and frequently change GBP into Euros. Very reliable and good rates, always.
We are used to efficient, friendly and value-for-money service from you – and our recent transaction was no exception. We are complete novices, living in Australia and renovating an old farmhouse in France – we’ve saved a good deal of money with very competitive, unparalleled rates and learned a bit too.
I sent an email to Foreign Currency Direct to request some euros, they called me back almost immediately, offered me a good rate, I paid them straight away and the money was in my French account the next morning. Best service I have ever had in nearly 7 years of living in France.
They were familiar with the notaire in France I was dealing with. The transfer of funds came through immediately. A breath of fresh air.
Brilliant service, genuine advice and rapid transfer of money to our French bank account. Tom Holian seems like a friend although we’ve never met!
