I use HiFX to transfer money to my account abroad as the process is very simple and I can rely on the service. If I have needed to speak to anyone (in the past) they have always been courteous and helpful and dealt with all my queries well. I chose this company as it was recommended by Martin Lewis and I have no qualms in recommending them to others.
I have to make regular money transfers to France: before I found HIFX this involved a physical trip to the bank several miles away (no on-line facility with them), a rubbish rate and a £25 fee. With HIFX the rate is great, the fee very small and the online transaction simple and convenient. What more to ask. I'm a convert.
I have used HIFX a few times and have found them extremely courteous and helpful when guiding me through options. I always recommend them to my family and friends for getting the best exchange rates when transferring money.
I have been using HiFX for a number of years now and each year it is simplified and streamlined. It is a fantastic service that I could not function without. I transfer funds monthly between the UK and Australia and not only are the rates provided excellent, but the speed and effectiveness are outstanding as well.
I have used HiFX currency transfer service to move money from the USA to the UK, changing US Dollars to GB Pounds and I have found the service easy to use, quick and great value. Much quicker than my bank and the exchange rate is much lower. I can't recommend HiFX highly enough.
HiFx consistently offer a good exchange rate and a simple reliable service for transferring Euros directly to our French bank account. We will continue to use them for regular transactions in the future. Best rates are achieved by transferring fairly large sums.
I have uses my high street bank o transfer money before and found them sluggish , expensive and slow.
Tried HiFX and can honestly say they were superb both in speed and also the rate given. I have now stopped using my bank and moved to a more customer friendly company - yes that's HiFX.
This is the second time I've used HiFX. I looked around for a cheaper way of sending money abroad than was availably from my own bank and other banks. HiFX makes the operation very straightforward and responds immediately when the transfer request is submitted. On the second occasion I made an error and the process to correct this (a quickly answered telephone call providing precise instructions ) was equally efficiently handled. When necessary, I will seek to use HiFX again.
OUR FIRST TRANSACTION USING HIFX AND I WAS REALLY IMPRESSED - SAVED US JUST UNDER £200 ON THIS SINGLE TRANSACTION INSTEAD OF USING OUR REGULAR BANK PLUS THEY WERE THERE STEP BY STEP AND IT WAS VERY EASY TO SET UP AN ACCOUNT AND THIS WAS ALL DONE AND COMPLETED AND PAYMENT MADE IN THE SAME DAY. MARVELLOUS SERVICE.
Not only was it the best exchange rate but there was no transfer fee! The money was in my spanish bank within 24hours and....wait for it....no draw on my UK account until the next day. How do they do that? I used to use my bank to do this FX stuff - lots of faxes, telephone calls and delays. I have used HiFx for a couple of years now and have never been let down. Far from it I think the process is actually getting easier.
I can see exactly the rate I will be getting and the amount that will end up in my spanish bank. I don't need to check, it just happens. Great customer follow-up too.
Why would I go anywhere else?
Had a problem with my card going through phoned the helpline it was dealt with quickly and efficiently the person on the end of the phone was extremely patient and talked me through it until everything was sorted
We are so impressed by your company we have recommended you to so many other friends. No complaints at all.
very easy and quick especially if, as in my case, I send money to the same French bank account regularly,
All done on HiFX website, which is good because some banks still need you to go to abranch to do this.
Pay by debit card, there's no wait while money moves from my UK current a/c to HiFX's account.
Amounts over £3K are free of charge, under £3K there's a transaction fee of £9, which is not a lot; under 0.5% for £2K.
Only thing I'm a bit dubious about is the HiFX GBP to EUR exchange rate; on £2K Hifx gave me a rate of 1.16ish on 18th November but in France on 22nd November I got a rate of 1.19+ on my Nationwide credit card. That's a difference of around 2.5% , however I guess that none of these companies are going to give you the Forex market rate, that's where they make their money.
If you're shifting a lot of money then the rate becomes the major factor, it's worth shopping around but for me the ease of use compensates for any loss on the exchange rate.
Your help and support throughout was superb.
Kristina Hrman was excellent - very professional - a credit to HiFX
I have further transactions to make and will certainly be using HiFX

This is the second time I have used HIFX to send money to Spain and wish I'd used them before. It's so easy to set up an account - watch the short video to start - and then all you need are the recipient bank details, account number etc. There's a space for writing in your reference for your recipient and another box for your own reference reminder. You choose the currency for sending and currency for receiving and get an instant price and can then pay HIFX by credit card or via BACS from your own bank account. They email you a contract confirmation sheet with a deadline for when they want your funds, email your recipient (if you want) and you when the funds have transferred. Seriously, there are NO catches and every cost is up front. Oh, and the exchange rates are very competitive too!
With the quality of service I have recieved continuously everytime I used them, I can only recommend them over a few other services I have used. Excellent rates and service cant compain on any front.
HiFX was recommended by a family member who lives abroad and uses them regularly. The online information was easy to understand - set up of the account and the transfer of the monies was quick. I intend to use this service again
I hadn't ventured beyond the banks before for foreign exchange or transfer services. But very happy I did. I received a very efficient service (no holding on the phone for 20 minutes) and it was an easy transaction. I was informed every step of the way which certainly put my mind at rest.
As always the transfer of funds was very rapid and fuss-free, and HiFx gave the best rate of all the firms of the same type I know about. It is brilliant to do the transaction with a few strokes of the keyboard without having to go through it all by 'phone.
After a quick response from Hifx, for details of their bank account, to ensure we could set up our payment to them, I found the web site really easy to use and actually an exciting experience. Its a step by step process with a chance to guage, a little, the final commit. Thank you Hifx for making it so easy.
I've used HiFX several times in the last three years to move money between Australia and the UK and the UK and France.
I have always had a good experience. The on line set up is easy to understand, and if there are questions the staff are always easy to reach by telephone, helpful and polite.
I have always felt in safe hands.
I use HIFX because it is quick and easy. The rates are good. And it doesn't cost me anything extra.
Hi if you want to send money or convert and send quickly and effortlesly then you won't find a better way of doing so than with HIFX
