A helpful non-intrusive company, that does what it is asked in a very timely fashion, especially when taking into account the time difference between the UK and Australia. The staff are easy to deal with and promptly reply to queries. My main reason for using them is to transfer money from the UK in Sterling, to me here in Melbourne in Australian dollars. This is done just a few times each year, normally using e mail and fax to achieve the task. Very happy with them, over several years now. John H

I always like to do business with the Currency UK team. They are quick and efficient and do their best to advise. Unfortunately, it does not always pay off, but it is not their fault, but the way the currencies fluctuate. Many thanks. Brigitte Mason

Good value and customer service They might not be the absolute cheapest to the mid-market rate, but they are close enough. Their excellent customer service then more than makes up the difference. Highly recommended for small (and large) transactions.
