LONDON, March 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Currencies Direct expert foreign exchange services aim to save you money on your summer holiday

As sponsors of the France Show that took place at the Earls Court in London, Currencies Direct took the time to survey attendees about their experiences with exchange rates and international transfers. Their findings were certainly interesting, as they reveal that many individuals can save money by using currency exchange services.  

For instance, only 9.92% of those surveyed use online services to obtain their holiday money, with approximately 90% of respondents using the bureau du change, the bank, the post office, or simply using your bank card while abroad to gain their foreign currency. If you have a bank account abroad and own a holiday home in France, Portugal or Spain, then you can save on your holiday currency exchange through Currencies Direct.

Similarly, when performing international transfers, only 17.69% of interviewees used a currency broker. This, again, is not cost-effective as Currency Direct make approximately 220,000 international transactions a year. This ensures that they know all of the best routes for your money and are able to track payments right into the destination bank account. Currencies Direct will even email your beneficiary so they know that your payments have been made.

"I am surprised to see that so many consumers are not taking advantage of a currency broker service," Alistair Cotton, Corporate Dealer at Currencies Direct said. "I know that our currency exchange specialists can not only provide substantial savings, but they can also guarantee to get the best savings for both businesses and individuals. At Currencies Direct, we will use our expertise to seek the best possible rate, whether you are sending or receiving foreign currency."
