Our history

Global Exchange operates in the currency exchange sector since 1996. Our company was founded in Spain, in Fuentes de Oñoro (Salamanca), a border town on the frontier with Portugal, where the owners of the company developed different tourist-oriented businesses. One of the tourists’ demands at the time was currency exchange (mostly Spanish Pesetas, French Francs and Portuguese Escudos), and so our currency exchange services began.

Soon this activity was expanded to other towns on the Portuguese border and great tourist attractions, but with the arrival of the euro and the subsequent disappearance of currency exchange among European citizens our company had to change its strategy. The euro set for our company the great challenge of our international expansion, first to Argentina in 2001.
