"I have been using them for 2 or 3 years now. I speak to the same person every time, someone who understands my needs, I get sound advice, I am never rushed or pressurised and the service is almost instant. I am especially happy to speak to someone. I have recommended to friends and colleagues and I will continue to do so."
Mr Garland, Hertfordshire, March 2017
"Convenient and Trustworthy. I have had an account since 2013 and have used them on several currency exchanges involved in buying, selling and renovating overseas properties. My contact is Alastair and I have nothing but praise for the calm reassuring way he, and his colleagues arrange transactions. It’s important to have full confidence and trust in an FX company when relatively large sums of money are involved and with their stability, provide me with that necessary reassurance."

Rhon Willingham, France, December 2016
"Continuing purchase of Euros have been efficient and a pleasure to deal with since purchasing a home in the Costa del Sol in 2012. From buying a large amount of Euros to fund the purchase and ongoing transactions on an ad hoc basis Alastair and all the staff have been a real breath of fresh air making everything so simple. Communication, service and delivery have all been fantastic. Would thoroughly recommend if you need a currency broker."
Chris Satchell, Herts, December 2016

Paul Middleton, Greece, November 2016
"Very professional Just recently completed buying a Finca here. Alastair was our contact and we found him to be very helpful, always contactable and we had trust in him that he was doing his best for us and was always understanding of the stressful situation of transferring large sums of money. He was particularly helpful in the wake of Brexit. I would recommend the company to anyone. Thanks Alastair."
Catherine Yule, Spain, October 2016
"Thank you Alastair, this last couple of weeks have been incredibly stressful.. being in one country but buying a house in another one.. obtaining money from elsewhere again to do the deal. Alastair helped to keep our stress levels to the minimum. Very efficient and helpful"
Katrhyn Bihuniak, United Arab Emirates, October 2016
"Efficient, professional, good customer service Little more to add. Very easy to deal with these guys, good rate, speedy transfer and nice personalised follow up. Great job!"
Gareth Matthews, Ireland, October 2016
Great service! Been using for over 10 years now and others have asked me to move for a gimmick or cheap introductory sale. I would never do this as I have friends who have been so disappointed using these 'cheaper alternatives' they never last or the service is poor. Alastair looks after my euros and they are in the bank abroad in no time. The service is always consistent and I am always happy with the outcome."
Christine Radford, Manchester, September 2016
"Thoroughly recommended. I have been dealing with Alastair for some years and have always found dealing with him and his company very straightforward. It started when I was planning to move to the States, and having bought some smallish amounts through my UK bank, and paying large commissions, I decided to find another source of US dollars. As I was trying to buy a property and the rate kept moving, Alastair suggested I buy a contract at today's price, but pay for it when I needed the money a year or two hence. This advice has paid dividends especially as the pound has been sliding for the past couple of years; and it has brought certainty to what otherwise could have been a nightmare. I saved around £20,000 by using the service and advice"

"I read about this service in the Place In The Sun magazine and was fascinated to see how much money could be saved by changing my money with them compared to with a bank. As I was moving from the UK to Spain, I was changing a fair amount of money which I would be using to buy a house. Alastair discussed with me how to secure a good rate for my funds, as I wouldn't need the money for some time, but wanted to make sure I locked in a good exchange rate. Thankfully I secured a good rate last October 2015, which in effect saved me/made me £20,000 compared to if I changed the money now, a year later. This also meant I knew exactly how much money I had to spend on a property. If I hadn't secured that rate I wouldn't have been able to afford to buy my dream house which I move into in a few weeks. The service is always friendly yet professional and very efficient. Very glad I use them!"
Joanna Payge, September 2016
"EXCELLENT SERVICE I was recommended by my daughter and have been much impressed by their excellent and supremely professional service. Special thanks to my Account Manager, Alastair"
Pamela Glynn, September 2016
"Great Customer Service I have used them 3 times now, over the last 5 years, to transfer money from the US to the UK. Alastair, my advisor, is very helpful, professional and responsive. I will continue to use them for future transactions."
Lisa Chapman, Surrey, September 2016
"Exchange with the best! Nice to be put through to Alastair again who is happy to give me a decent exchange rate and also have a bit of a chat! Unusual in today's world!"
Edward Fletcher, September 2016
"I use for all my Euro transfers, Alastair (and the team) are always so quick to respond and the transfers are done very quickly and efficiently. Alastair explains very clearly how it all works and the exchange rates are always very competitive. I will continue to use these guys, thank you Alastair :)"
Brigette Burke, September 2016
"Thank you to Alastair for helping with my currency needs this week. Everything was explained clearly and he was most helpful when it took a little longer than anticipated to put the funds in place. The exchange rate was very competitive and I will definitely use this service again"
Jane Barber, August 2016
"I continue to appreciate the wonderful customer service, which is always both efficient yet personal. Nothing ever seems too big or too small. I do not understand the world of finance, nor how money moves, seemingly effortlessly, across the continent. I am consistently grateful to Alastair for his help in these matters. From clear, non-patronising, advice, to cheery emails, I feel safe and secure whenever I need to buy euros. Thank you very, very much."
Requested to remain anonymous, August 2016
"Unfortunately, Brexit has not entirely left us with coffers overflowing, as we live in France, but am pleased to say that our monthly transfers still remain one of the best around to date. Well done keep up the good work, we are depending on you!"
Thomas, July 2016
"Alastair has just completed a second transaction for me - moving euros to pounds. The French bank were incredibly inefficient and all this was in the busy Brexit period, which just happened to make my incoming transfer rate of exchange really better than expected. As the days went by with no news from Societe Generale about my transfer, Alastair realised that the funds would be arriving much later than hoped and he fixed a very good spot price for me. Funds eventually did arrive and the transaction is now completed. My thanks to Alastair for his help, patience and excellent advice. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the expertise of Alastair."
Francesa De Bryas July 2016
"For over 3 years I have always been impressed with your excellent customer service. Alistair has always given great guidance, been quick, efficient and polite. A pleasure to deal with."
Alison Thompson June 2016
"This was the first time I have been involved in converting and transferring currency. Alastair was recommended to me by a friend and this turned out to be a great decision to take their advice. In my initial phone call to Alastair he explained the process and guided me through this from the registration to the final transfer of funds. He delivered an excellent service and saved us money!!! Thank you. I would thoroughly recommend."
Paul Dirkin June 2016
"I have been a customer for several years and executed a number of trades. Their exchange rate is infinitely better than the High Street. The service has always been prompt and efficient. I would certainly recommend this company."
Paul Brennan May 2016
"A first class service. Will definitely use this service again. The financial consultants were very professional and forthcoming with their expertise. Thank you."
Christopher Heaphy April 2016
"I used the services over about 12 months when buying a villa in Spain - the service (Alistair) was first class. Great advice and very quick service on every occasion. I also know pay funds across into Spain each month and again the service is first class. I highly recommend - great rates, low fees and very professional."
Derek Bonnard Feb 2016
"Excellent Service! I have done business with Alastair for several years and I have always been treated in a friendly, courteous and efficient manner. Nothing is too much trouble for him and he really does try to understand your requirements and meet your needs. Fast service and super rates of exchange. Excellent company to do business with. Thank you Alastair."
Robert Simpson October 2015
"Most helpful and fast service. I have been using Alastair for nearly Five years to transfer funds from UK pounds to Euros and have always found him both efficient and very helpful even when I get the paperwork wrong! Their website is informative and any questions I have had have always been responded to without having to wait around for answers. I do not look elsewhere for my currency needs as the service I receive is always top class."
