Foreign exchange made easy

Sending money overseas might seem like a complicated business: fluctuating exchange rates, bank charges and transfer fees, as well as technical jargon and paperwork. But it doesn’t have to be like this.


The Irish Times has partnered with exchange experts Moneycorp to create The Irish Times International Money Transfer Service. Together we will make sending money overseas simple. Moneycorp will help you secure great exchange rates and low transfer fees, tied in with a bespoke service and expert guidance on market behaviour, to really help your money go further.

Why use us instead of your bank?
Moneycorp’s exchange rates are typically up to 2 per cent better than a bank's, which can make a difference of hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands, depending on the size of your transfer. Your bank will also usually charge between €20 and €40 for a transfer, whereas Moneycorp’s fees are much lower and can be as low as €5.

You’ll have 24/7 access to money transfers online and receive expert help direct to your inbox from Moneycorp’s dealers, who will provide up-to-the-minute exchange rate information and daily briefs. You can also view and manage your full transaction history and store payment details to make repeat payments quickly and easily.

A dedicated personal account manager
When you open an account you will be assigned your own personal account manager. He or she will be a qualified currency dealer able to give you expert guidance on the foreign exchange markets and help you decide the best time to make a transfer to seize the most from exchange rate movements. Your account manager will use everyday language, not technical jargon, to help you get the best value from your money transfers.

Bespoke service
Your account manager will help you use a range of tools to manage your international money transfers. You can fix your exchange rate up to two years in advance of making a transfer, target a better rate that’s not yet on the market or create a regular payment plan if you need to frequently send money overseas. You can tailor your transfer to fit your needs and make your money work for you.
