About Us

In operation since 1990, the Interchange Group serves approximately 4 million customers annually, handling more than €600 million across 15 countries, including 9 major airports, 150 branches and numerous ATMs. It also has a network of more than 1,200 Western Union providers.

We’ve been changing, transferring and dispensing money for more than 30 years. It’s what we do best. Today, we operate foreign exchange and ATM services in Central and Eastern Europe’s three leading airports: Vienna, Prague and Budapest. We are also in three Polish airports, Slovakia’s Bratislava airport, France’s third airport, Nice Côte d’Azur, and Florida’s Orlando International.

In addition to our extensive airport network, we have more than 100 exchange offices and employ more than 500 staff across most of Europe’s top tourist destinations, throughout Southern Africa, and in the US and Australia.

We have also been a main agent for Western Union for over 25 years, specialising in remittances and money transfers, and we have taken Western Union into countries where this essential economic activity has not been previously available. As part of this work, we have developed a network of over 1,200 agencies, and we continue to insist on the highest-quality customer service and the most exacting anti-money laundering procedures. This is a pre-requisite for all of our businesses and is a reputation that we guard with zeal.

In addition to currency exchange and transfer services, we are one of the largest processors of ‘Tax Free VAT Refunds’, offering a highly efficient service at transit points of departures. We also offer ATM services, and these are increasing rapidly, with nearly 130 machines so far deployed, all with state of the art technology, and one of the highest availability records in the industry. We are dedicated to excelling in what we do and we offer our customers the most professional service through our efficient and competent staff. Our group holding company is based in Malta. The company was founded by our CEO, Alastair Holberton, and it remains family owned. We are entrepreneurial but fiscally conservative. We do not believe in debt, and we finance our growth from our own resources. We invite you not only to use our services but to come to us with your ideas and proposals.
