Cheaper currencies for persons repaying mortgage loans
Owing to several variants of exchange orders, allowing automated purchase of the currency at the demanded exchange rate without the need to follow the listings, Kantor Walutowy enables the client to reduce the mortgage loan instalment. The only thing to do is to define the parameters, i.e. the transaction type, amount, currency, exchange rate, transaction date and the exact expiry date of the order. The order is carried out if the declared level of the exchange rate has been reached. Otherwise the order may be carried out at the rate of the transaction date and time, provided that the client chooses such an option.
