WeSwap is a new social currency platform that is changing the way travel money is being exchanged. Travellers are getting a bad deal through exchange rates and bank charges, WeSwap is a social platform that matches you up with other travellers, cutting out the middleman, charging only 1% (compared to up 17% for some exchanges).
Jared Jesner and Simon Sacerdoti, founders of WeSwap, tell us more:
“We like to think we take the stress out of part of the holiday preparations by offering a currency exchange platform that is easy to use and will save you money. WeSwap will only charge you 1% for every swap with no hidden card charges and is even available on a handy app for iPhone and Android. So even if you do forget something, you can still upload money, swap currencies and purchase your item right from the comfort of your sun lounger at no extra cost.” – Simon Sacerdoti, Founder and CFO
WeSwap.com matches you up with other travellers heading in the opposite direction and then swaps the currencies. By not having to go through banks or other expensive retail outlets, it works out to be a much cheaper and more personal way to exchange money.
