What our community says

From the first contact we were very impressed with the level of service and professionalism that Currencies Direct showed. They guided us through the whole process of transferring our funds and advised us on the best thing to do to optimise our money transfer. I would certainly recommend Currencies Direct as a company to use for transfer of money.

Thoroughly recommend Currencies Direct. The service has been friendly and pro-active in getting our cash back to the UK. The whole procedure is painless and much cheaper than using the banks. I thoroughly recommend them
