Save money on currency transfers to and from Spain

When you’re transferring money overseas you generally have two choices, you can move it via a bank or with a currency specialist, such as Currencies Direct. You may find it’s more cost effective to move your money with the latter. 

What are the benefits of transferring your money with Currencies Direct?


  • Excellent exchange rates

  • No transfer fees

  • Authorised by the Bank of Spain

  • No receiving charges in Spanish banks

  • Award-winning service

  • 24/7 transfers online or by app 

  • Dedicated account manager

  • 20 local branches in Spain


With Currencies Direct you have greater freedom and flexibility over how and when you move your money, and you get personalised support from friendly currency experts.

This can save you significant amounts of money, particularly on larger transfers. Currency markets are notoriously volatile, with exchange rates sometimes shifting significantly from one week to the next. In September 2022, for instance, GBP/EUR sell from €1.15 to €1.11. On a £100,000 transfer that four-cent difference amounts to €4,000.

With help from your dedicated Currencies Direct account manager, you can time your transfer for when the market is most favourable for you.

Currencies Direct offers more competitive exchange rates than most banks, in addition to not charging any transfer fees. This means higher returns on your transfers to and from Spain.

While you can make a transfer online or via the Currencies Direct app, you can also speak with their currency experts over the phone or in person at one of their 20 local branches dotted throughout Spain.
