The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) provides a network that enables financial institutions worldwide to send and receive information about financial transactions in a secure, standardized and reliable environment. SWIFT also sells software and services to financial institutions, much of it for use on the SWIFTNet Network, and ISO 9362. Business Identifier Codes (BICs, previously Bank Identifier Codes) are popularly known as "SWIFT codes".

The majority of international interbank messages use the SWIFT network. As of September 2010, SWIFT linked more than 9,000 financial institutions in 209 countries and territories, who were exchanging an average of over 15 million messages per day (compared to an average of 2.4 million daily messages in 1995).SWIFT transports financial messages in a highly secure way but does not hold accounts for its members and does not perform any form of clearing or settlement.

SWIFT does not facilitate funds transfer: rather, it sends payment orders, which must be settled by correspondent accounts that the institutions have with each other. Each financial institution, to exchange banking transactions, must have a banking relationship by either being a bank or affiliating itself with one (or more) so as to enjoy those particular business features.

SWIFT is a cooperative society under Belgian law owned by its member financial institutions with offices around the world. SWIFT headquarters, designed by Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura are in La Hulpe, Belgium, near Brussels. The chairman of SWIFT is Yawar Shah,originally from Pakistan, and its CEO is Gottfried Leibbrandt, originally from the Netherlands.SWIFT hosts an annual conference every year, called SIBOS, specifically aimed at the financial services industry.

Convert currency before travelling

Easy to start

In most cases you can find the best exchange rate before you travel as you are more likely to be able to find the best exchange rate in your home area and not in a place where you are unfamiliar with the surroundings.

Find the best rate

Easy to start

Your ultimate goal should be to find the best exchange rate. Finding the best exchange rate should be simple. Ask your service provider directly how much they will charge in total for a particular currency and amount.

Whom should you avoid?

Easy to start

Avoid companies that do not have currency available immediately for you to pick up.You are unlikely to get a good rate if the currency has to be ordered from someone else.
