A bit more about us

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.
