Anything more than that would be too expensive for Currencies Direct. For smaller transactions expect to pay up to 1%.

Excellent speedy service, good rates and great security. One of the best!
Used currencies direct for many years, always excellent service. Since it improved the rate for smaller transfers its the best in the market. The wallet system is so useful for taking advantage of increases in rates. Well done to the team and thanks for making it easy to use.
