We always use BFE and order online first. It is so easy to then just turn up at whichever branch we have chosen and pick up the currency - no fuss plus a slightly better rate for ordering online.

After following the instructions provided on the website and making my application in advance, my buyback request was dealt with promptly and professionally, down to the penny. Considering the competitive rates, this level of service is absolutely excellent. I only wish there were offices outside of London.

Good rate online - however check the in store rate, as I found mine was better and they let me pick that rate instead. Very quick turnaround from online order to foreign cash in hand. Tip: get cash out at ATM to exchange as they charge for debit/credit cards.

Everything about this company is great, from exchange rates (exceptional) to ease of using their website. My only quibble comes from the fact that I travel to Greece a lot and I've found it difficult to change €100 notes, even in a bank. It was whispered to me that they worry about money laundering. As I usually collect between €2/3K for my two month visits I would appreciate a more sympathetic response from BFE when I ask for smaller denominations.

Best currency exchange rate I could find without travelling too far to get it. Staff were pleasant, polite and professional. Apply for your money online using their fast track service to get the best rate. No need to print the voucher, just give your name when you collect it. Would recommend.
