WHAT
Find.Exchange is a powerful platform that uses geo-location to help you find out which retailer is offering the best currency exchange rates near you.

Find.Exchange then tells you everything you need to know about the retailer (e.g. address, contact details, opening hours, currencies they deal with and rates, customer reviews), and even maps out a route to get you there.

WHY
An example: British waste on travel money over $30 million (£21 million) a year during a currency exchange at airports, this means an average traveller loses $18 (£13) per transaction. We think that’s unacceptable, and we want to promote a little healthy competition between the currency exchangers.

With Find.Exchange, you can avoid those high commissions and hidden fees.
