    BER Mission

    BestExchangeRates is the premier global exchange rate comparison platform for retail and small businesses. The BER comparison algorithms save you time and money finding which vendor is offering the best rate for cash exchange and money transfers right now.

    The aim of the platform is to empower individuals and small businesses to navigate the complex and often perplexing, international money transfer market through guides, reviews, ratings, comparisons, an advanced FX calculator, and news.

    BER provides a foreign exchange comparison and marketing platform that empowers individuals and businesses to save money in their overseas currency transactions through connecting them with award-winning, regulated foreign exchange experts.

    Our partner vendors can assist with an international money transfer whether it be for buying a house overseas, to support an overseas relocation, paying overseas tuition fees or for travel money. 

    To date, we have connected thousands of people with foreign exchange experts who have enabled them to save money on their international money transfer.

    BER is headquartered in Sydney.

    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 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 the problem we are solving at BER via our transparent pricing calculator - vendor rates are shown alongside the latest market mid-rate and with each vendor's percentage margin and fees.
