CurrencyFair is the best way to exchange currency and send funds to bank accounts worldwide. Our unique, new peer-to-peer marketplace ensures big savings on exchange rates and fees, and puts YOU back in control.
CurrencyFair is a unique, new way to exchange currency, because it is peer-to-peer, or could perhaps better be called person-to-person. We've created a safe, online marketplace where people can exchange currencies directly with other people.
Why is this such a good thing?
Better exchange rates
Because people are dealing directly with each other and can negotiate a mutually beneficial rate.
Lower transfer fees
Because the funds do not have to travel internationally; they're already where you need them.
More control back in your hands
You can choose the timing, and even the rate, of each exchange!
Benefits for you
Safe and Secure
We are fully regulated as an Authorised Payments Institution by the Central Bank of Ireland (equivalent to the FSA in the UK) under the European Payment Services Regulations, and hold all customer funds in segregated client accounts with a major global (not Irish) bank. We also employ top-notch technical security to ensure the safety of your personal data. You can find more information in our Security Statement.
Low transfer fees and the savings really add up. Foreign exchange rates on CurrencyFair are typically 3% better than bank rates, and 1-2% better than major online brokers. You also save around €20 or the equivalent in transfer fees.
On our marketplace, you can choose to exchange immediately at an excellent rate, or if you're not in a hurry you can offer up your own rate and wait for someone else to match it. You can even choose to exchange a portion at a time over a period, and transfer it all out at the end. Be warned though – this new feeling of control can be addictive!
We recognize that fast, efficient, and friendly customer service makes a great business. We're always ready to help; whether you prefer to email, tweet, speak on the telephone, or even drop by the office! CurrencyFair is about people and we take great pride in making sure that your experience is a positive one.
Fast and simple
The markets are open 24 hours a day, and soon you'll even be able to exchange at the weekend.
