Sending money between South Africa and the UK?

Are you using a bank or a currency exchange broker to send money to the UK? CurrencyFair is the fast, easy and low cost way to transfer money between South Africa and the UK. Save money on transfers of ZAR to GBP with CurrencyFair – up to 8x cheaper than a typical bank.

CurrencyFair offers an exchange rate that is usually as close as 0.45% to the Interbank rate. Most high-street banks, brokers and even PayPal hide their charges in their exchange rate, which can then be as far as 3%–6% away from the same rate.

How CurrencyFair is different:

  • Our bank-beating exchange rates mean you avoid hidden mark-ups and excessive fees charged by banks and brokers, helping you send ZAR up to 8 times cheaper than with a typical bank.
  • With CurrencyFair you get the best available rates every time you need to exchange money and unlike traditional providers, we have no minimum or maximum whether you need to exchange R1,000, R5,000 or R10,000 to GBP.
  • You can then transfer your GBP for just £2.50 (or its currency equivalent) everytime.*
  • You can do all this in your account anytime, anywhere on CurrencyFair.com, or from our iOS or Android apps.
