The team was quick to respond to queries, patient with me and were thorough in all areas of financial transactions. They were reliable and keen to help. I liked the way they worked as a unit and not as individuals. Highly recommended.

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!

The service I received by both David in England and Joanne in Spain resulted in the money arriving in my bank account far sooner than expected which was very helpful.

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.

A professional, friendly & efficient service, where they do what they say they will. David Comber steered us through our house purchase in France with informative guidance and has looked after our foreign financial needs ever since. We would thoroughly recommend Smart Currency to anyone with foreign currency requirements abroad.

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.

I had a great experience with Smart Currency and would highly recommend them. Barney Cotton was my adviser and he answered all my questions and helped me through my French house purchase. When paying the full amount on my house my Building Society made me pay it in four lots of payment. One of those payments didn't show up initially and Barney tracked it down and made sure it was all in the right place at the right time. He kept me fully informed with what was going on by emails and double checked any security issues immediately by phone. Excellent service and I am continuing to use them for any transactions I have to make.

We have recently bought a house in Spain and involved Smart Currency from the start. David Comber and everyone else we have spoken to were straightforward to deal with. No jargon, no fuss and with a network of relevant experts at their fingertips (e.g. lawyers). Of course we had concerns about handing a large amount of money over to strangers but it's all been absolutely fine. Involve them before you go house hunting and you will be ahead of other purchasers.

I am very impressed with the efficient and speedy service that Smart Currency have expedited my transactions from the U.K. to Japan. Mr Dalvinder Rai and Mr Ash have proven to me that they able to negotiate a rate, and when funds sent from my bank to S. C. they promptly sent to my account. Funds sent are received the next day, even taking into account the eight hour time difference. I have used the servives of Smart Currency three times, and will continue to do so for all future transactions.
