Rational FX is very easy to use

Rational FX is very easy to use, offers good exchange rates and only makes a tiny charge of £4. And it’s secure, so I would recommend it to anyone.

Easy to use and convenient, but the rate could be better. I know I could get a better rate if I rang up, but I don't always do my transactions in normal working hours. The rate just needs to be a bit better.

I had one big currency transaction to make recently following a property deal and needed an international trading company. Following a brief examination of the Rational FX company profile by Internet browsing I opened my account over the phone and was soon put in touch with a trader, RH. Communication was good with a high degree of trust at both ends. I felt I was getting a personal service and that RH had my interests at heart. He advised me on the best time to move and I was happy with the rate that he was able to offer me. When my funds were delayed due to banking administration FX made no fuss about this and honoured our original deal even though the exchange rates were yo-yoing daily. The funds were in my account in a matter of hours. A very good experience overall.

Using the service from RationaFX online and through my dedicated account manager has been very easy and much more cost effective that using my bank to transfer money, I recommend their services to anyone needing to transfer money of any size/frequency.

What can I say Staff friendly that the good bit Very unprofessional nobody seems to know what they are doing I would suggest you improve your training Your firm cost me money as if the deal had been done on that day it would have been +4 but instead it was done the following day when the pound fell Would I use you again Possibly not would I recommend your company No There are a lot of fx companies out there I have used a few You are by far the worst and in the end the most expensive You will probably ignore this message It is not very often I complain but I think with just cause in this case

No stars for this company. They kept my monies for two days before sending it. Technically it took longer than what it says on the website. Avoid sending through them. Almost on the verge of losing the property i want to buy. After tens of phone calls, money was sent out late.
