WITHOUT doubt, Christmas is the season to spend money. All good intentions to restrain your spending tend to go out the window in the build-up to the big day, so making savings where you can is always welcome.
If you need to fund a festive trip back home or want to send money to loved ones this year, keep reading to find out how you can cut costs…
On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me… great exchange rates and no transfer fees…
One of the simplest ways you can cut the costs of your currency transfers this Christmas is to use the services of a leading international payments provider like Currencies Direct.
By avoiding the transfer fees charged by most banks and securing a more competitive exchange rate you’ll quickly get more for your money.
O currency, O currency…
The currency market is notoriously volatile, with exchange rates having the potential to move by as much as 5% in a matter of days.
Staying on top of the latest market movements can really help you time your transfers effectively, so sign up to receive regular market updates and look into services like rate alerts.
With a rate alert you simply tell your currency provider what exchange rate you want to achieve and they’ll send you an instant update as soon as the market moves to that level.
Their experts are also on hand to talk you through the ins and outs of the world of currency and help you pick the best transfer option for your requirements, from forward contracts (which let you fix the exchange rate for up to a year) and regular payments (which allow you to automate recurrent transfers with no fees).
All I want for Christmas is quick, convenient currency transfers…
Another plus point of using a currency specialist to manage your transfers is the amount of flexibility they offer. Whether you want to make your transfers online, through an app or over the phone with the help of your account manager, you’ll benefit from fast, free transfers and exceptional customer service.
At Currencies Direct, they have helped over 250,000 customers save on their currency transfers since 1996. With offices across Spain and dedicated account managers, they’re available to help you make your money go further.
