I found the people from SCE very professional, caring and available to provide information and reply to my doubts and concerns and flexible when facing difficulties in formalities. No need to say that the transfer has been succesful and in the due term

I cant praise SmartCurrencyExchange enough - and definitely recommend them to anyone needing to do a large currency exchange. I had to do a large currency transfer for a property purchase abroad, and needed to ensure that the transfer happened quickly because timescales were really tight. Barney at SmartCurrencyExchange arranged the currency transfer the same day - I got a confirmation email showing that the money had been transferred that afternoon and this was confirmed as received by the solicitors first thing the next day. Barney was incredibly helpful, responsive and quick to execute the transfer and the whole experience was painless and very transparent. It's easy to think that large currency transfers are safest done by banks, and it is a bit nerve-racking deciding to trust someone else, but I wholeshartedly recommend using smartcurrencyExchange - not only did I get a far better deal, I actually felt more re-assured during the process. I will definitely be using them whenever I need to transfer money abroad in the future. Its so refreshing to deal with such a professional, efficient and effective business that still maintains the personal touch.

I have just used smart currency for the 1st time and the dealer i dealt with for my transaction was 1st class,informative and did not push either way to make a deal in my currency swap over from euro to the English pound. He was informative and kept in contact with me every week. Thanks Matt Bird once again for all your help and advice. I would recommend this firm to anyone who wishes to exchange money. Yours sincerely Adrian Fazakerley

I highly recommend Smart Currency Exchange. It feels like a bit of a gamble trusting someone with the money you are intending to buy a new home with but I wouldn't hesitate recommending them. Dalvinder Rai was always contactable and offered great advice throughout the process. He was very accommodating and professional. I was amazed to wake up the next morning to see the money in our account (UK to NZ)! We will use them again!

I cannot speak highly enough of the professional and friendly service we received from Smart Currency Exchange during our house purchase in Spain. At all times we were kept fully informed by our trader Dalvinder (and, on other occasions, David) and the whole process was streamlined, simple and efficient. Highly recommended.

Smart Currency has dealt with our exchange requirements for the last year and the service has been excellent. David the trader we have worked with has been unfailingly polite and helpful. The rates offered have been outstanding and when problems occurred on our side they were met with understanding and help. We are more than pleased to recommend Smart Currency to others and have, indeed, already done so. We will continue to work with them in the future.

Very easy to deal with, polite and friendly, and always able to contact them about anything. They always explain anything you need to know very clearly. They also gave us a great rate for what we required. However, I think they need to up their game when it comes to their online facilities. It took them almost four months, in a six month period contract, to set us up with an online account. Prior to this, we had to keep calling them for confirmation of deposited monies. A small negative maybe, but one that was important to us.
