About Us

Who we are

We’re your local foreign exchange experts, with an international wingspan. We’re based in beautiful Northern Ireland, but we can transact business all over the world.

No matter how large or small your transaction, we offer much better exchange rates than Banks and Post Offices. No matter how slick their marketing, and offers of commission-free exchange etc., their rates are invariably poor compared to ours. We specialise. It’s the only thing we do and we don’t have the huge overheads that these institutions have, so we can live with much smaller margins, giving you much more value for your money.

And unlike a lot of internet-based forex offerings, we’re 3-dimensional, with real bricks and mortar offices, where you’ll always be made welcome should you call.

What we do

Put simply, we buy and sell Euro, US Dollars and every other currency worldwide, and whether you’re calling in one of our offices to change a Euro, or you’re buying or selling your million dollar property abroad, we guarantee you a personalised service and bank-busting rates.

Do you:

  • Need foreign cash to go on holiday?
  • Travel to Republic of Ireland or further afield on business?
  • Import/export to and from abroad?
  • Work overseas and get paid in a foreign currency?
  • Work in UK with expenses at home in Ireland or elsewhere?
  • Pay a mortgage in another country?
  • Wish to buy/sell a property abroad?

In all these scenarios, any thousands more, we can help, and we can save you money, so have a look at what we have to offer, and start making those savings.

Currencies traded in our offices

If you like to do your business face-to face, you’ll always be made welcome in either of our offices. We have prominently located, easy to find branches in Enniskillen, Lisnaskea and Omagh. We‘re open Monday through Saturday, so we’re always going to be here to answer your currency questions, and transact your business.

International bank transfers

Whatever your reason for transferring monies abroad, we can send monies to any permissible country in the world. You just need to give us your details, and the destination details, and we look after the rest, efficiently, discreetly and with our usual great exchange rates.
