I don't often use the service but have an account. Each time I log in it is easy to navigate and logical to use - the email feedback is excellent and I don't see how it could be made any easier or convenient to transfer money abroad. The commission is always very competative too.

Having used a competitor for a number of years I found their exchange rate was starting to be uncompetitive when looking at those offered by RationalFX so decided to try them. Their service and response was first class and the money was transferred within the time scale promised. I will certainly use them again.

I have had a very bad experience with financial dealings in the past, so I was very reluctant and wary of sending a mortgage size sum of money to a company I had never heard of. I did internet checks which included the FCA authorisation website and TrustPilot. RationalFX staff were polite, professional and above all informative. They gave me a very good exchange rate. I could only manage to transfer the funds late in the evening of day 1 of the 2 day allotted time frame (the banks fault not RationalFX). The payment confirmation from RationalFX came through at 14:30 the next day!! This is a superb service, all completed over the telephone. Congratulations to Ryan for a job well done. Kind regards Peter (France)

I started using this company as they promised 1-2 days from receipt of funds to beneficiaries account. First few transactions as promised, happy client, latest transaction through their online team disaster struck. Received email confirming transfer to beneficiaries account, nothing received. On the 3rd day of nothing I contacted them, they promised that funds would transferred that day or the next as they had banking problems, 3rd day nothing. After another 4 calls in the morning they made promises again you are your top priority, end of 4th day nothing. They just lie to suit themselves.
