A review would simply be an elongation of the above
Currency Solutions delivered what was promised in the time frame with prompt follow up calls to ensure professional service delivery – for me this was impressive.
Would I recommend and use their service again? Yes without a doubt.
Currency Solution came highly recommended from a work colleague and the setup of the account was very easy and quick. The only issue I had in the entire transaction was getting a hold of my dealer for the first initial order - but found out afterwards that he was out the morning I wanted to transact. The rest of the staff did a great job of getting the order filled. The followup after this first trade was first class - they checked that the beneficiary information was correct several times and followed up both via email and phone to ensure the initial transfer had occurred in the timely matter they had promised. Would have given 5 stars if it hadn't been for the issue of getting a hold of my dealer.
Really good experience having a business with them. It was really hard finding a person who can sent money so fast with very minimal charge the only hassle I found is I have to pay fee to send money from Canada to UK (to Currency solution) and then extra fee for sending money to the destination.
Service is superb Love it.
Do you know what I had just sold my apartment and was wanted to convert my euros into sterling and the selling agent in Bulgaria recommended Currency Solutions, I was unsure so I contacted my bank here. They could not give me a straight answer as to how much I would be getting and was left disappointed. So I took Christophe's advice and contacted Currency Solutions. It was so easy and Julian Gutherie advised me straight away how much I would get. The money came through within days and I will recommend this company to anybody selling or transferring money from abroad.
We have several large transactions from Australian Dollars to UK Pounds to make and like all first time users of currency transactions we were just a little nervous as we have always used the banks before to transfer direct. However, we were fed up with the poor bank rate and decided to try Currency Solutions. We need not have worried. Everything went smoothly and the funds arrived in our UK account on time and 100% complete. We gained considerably over the normal bank rates and are therefore delighted with the service which we will be using again very soon.
We had used a company in London before coming over to Currency Solutions and had got used to the London company's way of working. However they stopped dealing with individual customers so we had to look for someone else.
At first the method used by C.S. was a little difficult, only because it was new to us, but after having made the first transaction, the second, third and fourth was dead easy.
The dealer we have is very helpful indeed and we both feel she is a trusted 'partner' in helping. us.

IMproved ever since we first started using CS in 2006. Comms excellent,
For us, rates always difficult to improve on.
Procedures : easy to deal via telephone ; settlement procedures second to none.
Staff always knowledgeable, helpful and very polite (even the receptionists!)
Normally takes me under 60 seconds to connect to my dealer agree the trade price and be done, conformation arrives in less than 5 mins by email and payment is always in the next day with Euro - Pound purchases, really could not ask for more.
The service was fast, transparent and accurate. It was all I could hope for. And, on top of that, it was quite close and familiar, a good approach from Currency Solutions. I will definetly use the company services for similar international money transfers should I require such in the future.
Having transferred my regular salary from the Uk to Cyprus with the Royal bank of Scotland, for years, I was pretty oblivious to currency transfers and poor rates being applied by the bank, however on recommendation from a friend I have since started using currency solutions for my monthly transfers.
Currency solutions staff both in Cyprus and UK offer the perfect solution for my needs. Funds are transferred into the money solutions holding account early morning and by early afternoon the transfer is complete.
Very efficient fast service highly and highly recommended .
I had no idea how much I was getting ripped off by my bank in Australia when sending A$ over to the UK. A couple of emails and super friendly phonecalls later, I was hooked up with Currency Solutions and had £500 in my account that I would have donated to the Westpac Xmas Party otherwise. You're crazy if you don't use these guys.
I use Currency Solutions on a regular basis I find the whole experience from start to finish very straight forward. The people are very friendly and professional all along the chain. Same day settlement helps me very much. Keep up the good work.
This was the first time I'd used an Exchange to purchase foreign currency (other than the usual bank/airport booths). Being assigned a specialist from Currency Solutions I was able to get quick answers to my questions. The deal itself then went through very quickly and efficiently, with plenty of communication to update progress. As their rates seem very competitive I'll happily use them again.
I regularly need to transfer Euro to Sterling and I need good rates and a reliable service. Currency Solutions discussed my requirements openly and answered all my questions - no avoiding anything, just straight and clear answers. Setting up a trade and funds/trade transfers was really simple and very fast. Every communication, whether by email or phone, to inform me of something or to answer a question has been very fast - almost instant!. The rates are good and the service excellent. I have used Nationwide International for many years but their rates have recently changed and are now very expensive and the transactions are slow compared with Currency Solutions (days as compared to minutes/hours). I will be continuing to use Currency Solutions for my future currency transfers and based on my experience so far I would highly recommend them.
It was very easy. I phoned and explained the amount of sterling I would like to transfer. I added that my British bank has a daily limit and that it would take several days to complete the transaction. No probs! I was advised of exactly the amount in Euros that I would receive and the day it would go into my French bank account. The woman at Currency Solutions and I checked that the details I had for the CS bank account to be credited were correct, and I was given a reference number. The day that my final credit arrived with CS it was transferred to my French bank account. It really could not have been much more pleasant and simple. The assistant also told me of the facility to prebook a rate; hoping that the £ may rise in value against another currency. This was something I’d not noticed on the CS website having, I confess, not having looked at it for some time.
I used Currency solutions several times, and it has always been absoluteley reliable and fast.
The personal curreny agent calls back to confirm details, and some email updates follow. The money arrived the same day, or the next day.
I will use this service again.
Everyone has been very helpful from day one. The service is quick, and parts of it are automated to speed up service, but any occasion requiring a call leads to an immediate resolution. Very happy with this service and would recommend Currency Solutions to anyone. Thank you.
Extremely prompt response to my initial enquiry,I was impressed by the professional yet friendly manner with which my request to buy currency was handled.I have used their services twice,and both transactions were handled to my complete satisfaction.
I like the service, it is quick, competitive and works for me. I usually send the euros that I buy to my bank account in another EU country and I am still charged 10 pounds. Meanwhile my bank has lowered the transfer rate now to 4 pounds. May be it is time to update the money transfer charges with the general trend in EU, which is down?
My recent currency exchange by Currency Solutions was carried out with quiet efficiency and no fuss: a very professional service. The transfer was made in the minimum period possible, without the delay that can afflict transfers into a French account, and at a rate slightly better than the competition.
I give them top marks!
From the first contact via phone and email to each step of a set of multiple transactions, this has been a fantastic customer experience. A refreshing change to the systematically falling standards of service that we are all getting accustomed to in our experiences with banks and other service providers.
The speed of each transaction with Currency Solutions was remarkable. The same must be said for the frequency of email communication, which provided constant and informative updates. For a change, not once we had to clarify, repeat or correct any instruction given or any action agreed - the staff actually listened, acted on instructions very rapidly and proved extremely competent.
This was the most straightforward, pain free and cost-effective set of bank transactions we have ever done. Well done, Currency Solutions!
I opened my account easily, aided by the efficient admin people and was introduced to my broker. I placed my first order, was given a great rate, funded the account and completed my first trade. The beneficiary received their cash in US within 2 hours, awesome service, I will use again and again, thanks
My husband and I were dismayed to see how LloydsTSB ATM charges added up over a monthly period. My good friend suggested Currency Solutions to us, and once I'd set the wheels in motion, I was eagerly awaiting the transfer of funds. The speed and efficiency of the deal was truly amazing! I phoned Friday, the funds were in our account Monday. Our first contact with Currency Solutions will definitely NOT be our last.
Have enjoyed dealing with my consultant Julian, and am sure to continue using this service for a long time to come. Best features are the sheer simplicity and efficient nature of the service. He doesn't waste my time, and funds are quickly exchanged between accounts without delay.
My decisions are guided by the daily currency update, which I pay close attention to so thank you for providing this additional service. This was a key factor in me choosing to use Currency Solutions in the first place.
The whole experience was very smooth - ideally I would have preferred to execute electronically and my requests for a quote as a spread from mid rather than an absolute quote were ignored/forgotten, however the price offered could not be matched and the transfer was efficiently effected.
well done to all the team, have fun.
I make 2-3 currency transactions a year to the same destination accounts.
Currency Solutions are easy to get hold of and always very helpful. Because they keep details of my previous trades, I don't have to waste time completing the destination Account details each time.
I check the conversion rate on Yahoo before I call, so I can see that the rate Currency Solutions are giving me is always close to the mid-market rate.
My move from Cyprus has been one vexation after another and quite the most difficult in all my last fifty years of overseas service, employment and retirement . The economic calamities that have fallen upon that unhappy island have not helped of course but the sheer incompetence of government tax and other departments has made a difficult time maddeningly worse. So it has been a great relief to have had the assistance of Currency Solutions staff both in Cyprus and in England in the difficult exercise of levering out the proceeds of our house sale at a satisfyingly good rate of exchange. I look forward to their completing the transfer for me when the proceeds from the balance of my wife's probate are finally released.by the Cypriot government. I am grateful to them all and am pleased to put this appreciation of their services on record.
I had reservations about something I 'Googled'. But with a bit of research and then eventually calling the company, who then assigned me my own advisor (Leigh), I was quickly put at ease. My € to £ international transfer was seamless and cheaper than what the banks would've charged. Thank you, I will be using you again.
I had to transfer money to Uganda to purchase agricultural equipment for a school near Gulu. I have used Currency Solutions before and trust them to quote competitive rates and conduct transfers efficiently. Again I have not been disappointed. The money arrived in the Ugandan company account exactly as agreed and the transaction was completed as planned. I will certainly use Currency Solutions again.
