Best Exchange Rates

The BER Mission

Categories: BER

The Problem we are solving

Banks and currency brokers make their money from both fees and the exchange rates they offer.

Everyone is aware of the fees but few people realise that the rate they get is not the mid-rate you see on the news.

That is because generally, the vendors hide this mid-rate from you as they are marking it up significantly – to their own benefit.

This is our mission towards exchange rate transparency via our transparent pricing calculator – vendor rates are shown alongside the latest market mid-rate and with each vendor’s percentage margin and fees.

Who we Help

Currency Exchange Customers :

Our price comparison algorithms and calculator can save you time and money since it helps you find which vendor is offering the best rate for cash exchange and money transfers right now.

We have organised special deals with some of the vendors such as fee-free transfers etc. We also provide handy tips on how to get the best exchange rates whether for travel or business.

You can register to set up your profile, favourite currencies and receive information on special offers from our vendors.
