Orders placed by the website may be made in Spanish or English.

Orders are subject to a maximum value of €5,90 per person per calendar quarter. This limit applies to purchases made both at branches, by telephone or by website. This amount may be amended at any time, but will not affect orders in process.

Other operators (banks and currency exchange companies) are not subject to exchange rates quoted by the ECB, and they are allowed to apply margins or fees. Global Exchange only applies a margin that may vary depending on the currency and the amount (larger purchases have better rates for the customer).
