Travel is more social than it ever has been, with the community of travellers helping each other out with everything from places to stay to tips on what to do.

We SwapWeSwap.com is applying this idea to cash with the world’s first person-to-person currency exchange. This basically means side-stepping the traditional money exchangers and their differing exchange rates, and swapping directly with someone who has the money you need.

They can hook you up with the right person with the right amount of 16 different currencies (including Australian dollars, New Zealand dollars, Hong Kong dollars, Singapore dollars, Canadian dollars, Swiss francs, Euros and US Dollars) and promise to keep the whole thing nice and simple.

Instead of a load of variable and confusing exchange rates they use the mid-market currency exchange rate and charge a simple fee of 1%, compared with traditional providers who charge up to 13%.

They are fast becoming a popular way to exchange money and are getting noticed for their social innovation. WeSwap.com received the Innovation in Travel award at the recent 2015 Travel Weekly Globe Travel Awards.
