How Long Does It Take To Exchange Currency?

How Our Transfers Work

Select the currency that you want to send in to your CurrencyFair account (the currency you are converting from) and your transfer currency (the currency you are converting to) below to see the relevant process times and fees. The process times are estimates and may depend on your bank in some cases – we clear (move) your money in to your CurrencyFair account as soon as it arrives. It is quickest to send or transfer funds in the morning, as most banks have a cut-off time in the early afternoon, and transfers after that are not sent until the following day.

Quicker and easier than traditional international bank transfers.
