Payment Reasons > Miscellaneous

Stop paying more than you need to when making international currency exchange transfers!

Regardless as to what your reason is for an international transfer, Smart Currency can help you to create a strategy that will save you money and reduced the risk of your payment increasing in value. When transferring money between countries with different currencies, losses occur through bank charges, poor exchange rates and bad timing. All three types of losses can be drastically reduced by using Smart Currency Exchange.

Smart Currency is able to provide better exchange rates than those offered by high street banks. Where the bank often sets their exchange rates in the morning, Smart Traders call into the market floor and get the best possible live exchange rate which is often 2 – 4% better than the rates listed at the bank. On £50,000 that’s a 1- 2k savings! Furthermore, Smart Traders concentrate on one thing and one thing only – moving money. By doing this, they understand where fees are charged and how they can be avoided. Aside from good rates and fee reductions, Smart has a few options that allow clients to create various money-saving strategies. 

This all sounds good theoretically but what’s this mean in real life?  Let’s consider Ted's example:

Ted often looked out on the Mediterranean and wished that he could buy a yacht.  In a fortunate turn of events a family member left him a considerable legacy in the UK and Ted knew that his days of being landlocked were over. He found a boat in April and needed to come up with the payment in late June, when the boat was being delivered. With this in mind, he contacted Smart Currency Exchange, discussed the cost and rates and decided to set up an ‘Order to Buy’. This means that if the euro exchange rate hit a certain level, the specialists would buy the currency. Thankfully, in late May, the rate hit €1.15/£1 just in time for Ted to make his payment. By setting up the ‘Order to Buy,’ Ted was able to save just over £4,500 .

So...how can Smart specifically help you to save money on your next international payment? They can:

  • Provide better-than-bank exchange rates by calling through to the market floor for the best rate on your behalf
  • Reduce the risk that the amount you want to receive decreases in value or reduce the risk that the amount you need to pay increases in value
  • Offer a service with no commission an no hidden charges. There is, however, a small administrative fee on all transfers below £3,000;, however the savings in better-than-bank exchange rates and the ability to fix rates for the future far outweigh the small fee.
  • Give you direct access to your dedicated Smart Trader. Your Smart Trader will be able to explain the options available when making regular payments, the market conditions and various ways to hedge against changes in the value of currency exchange rates. Also, it's important to note that unlike most UK international payment specialists, Smart Traders are not paid on commission, thus your trader will be working for you - not their pay-packet.
  • Make the whole process fast and effortless - leaving more time for you to spend focusing on things like yachting!
