Moving Overseas? Here’s a Way to Save Money

Mar 28. 2021

When it comes to moving abroad, there will be a lot to think about and to plan and there will be quite a few areas of expense that you’ll need to budget for. One of which will of course be the cost of shipping your household effects and/ or motor vehicle.

One area that you can save money on though, will be transferring currency. Using a currency company to make the transfer will be far more cost effective than using a bank. Currency companies like Currencies Direct make transfers to more than 200 countries in over 40 currencies and, importantly, offer ‘bank-beating’ exchange rates. There is no transfer fee or hidden charges. Furthermore, the transaction is 100% safe and secure to ensure your peace of mind.

All you need to do is agree the currency amount and the exchange rate, which can be done either online, over the phone or via the Currencies Direct app, let them know where you need the currency sending to (you’ll need either IBAN or bank account details). Finally, you can make the payment- either by debit card or by transferring money to Currencies Direct and they’ll send the funds as soon as they receive your payment.

The benefits of using a company like Currencies Direct also mean that you can make speedy transfers 24/7, buy the currency in advance, and even create rate alerts and check live rates whilst you’re on the go.

Saving time, money and stress during a move abroad is important and Currencies Direct offer a very useful way of doing this.
