It happens everytime we go abroad on business or pleasure . We get to the airport ready to come home ( and being conscientious types) like to have some loose change for emergencies. The loose change invariably ends up being about £100 worth of mixed coin and notes.. Fortunately, the emergency doesn't happen and the foreign currency finishes up in a drawer at home. This great service quickly converts that otherwise worthless currency back into sterling. This is the first time we have used this service and it won't be the last. The conversion is an easy proceedure and LOC provide a quick and efficient turnaround. Well done.
I had some reservations as to whether this was a bona-fide service as I got the details from the internet. However, I needn't have worried as the service provided by Leftover Currency was absolutely first-class.
They provided plenty of on-line advice for sending currency, particularly coins, in the post and this was extremely useful. The form for sending with currency was clear and concise and easy to print and complete. They acknowledged receipt of my currency almost immediately by email and the money was in my bank account within a day or two.
Just can't recommend this service highly enough. Absolutely excellent!!
Fantastic idea - great service - easy to do! I was really impressed with everything about left over currency and have been telling everyone about it and recommend they have a go. I had random bits and bobs left over from holidays and business trips that I thought I would never be able to use but also felt I couldn't throw away. I got over £50 for very little effort. Very impressed, very happy!
For years have had odd bits of currency around the house and not known what to do with it, other than give to charity. This got me thinking that if charities could find a way of converting then so could I.
Didn't really know what to expect and as I had Cyrpriot Pounds and Portuguese Escudos totalling no more than £20 I didn't feel I had anything to lose by popping it in the post. I was amazed how quickly I received an email advising my currency had been received with a very fair offer of around £18. I accepted this and within a day the money was in my paypal account.
I had these expired currencies from various parts of the world, not perhaps worth a fortune but not worth anything in the drawer! Sent them off to Leftover Currency and got a payment for all very quickly. Well worth the small effort to send them.
Easy to use, and it's possible to do as I did and take the currency to the London office. This avoids the postage charge but of course is only a viable option if you live close enought to London to make it economical. The money was paid into my account very promptly and I was kept updated by email. Thoroughly recommended: go through your pockets and cupboards now and get some free money.
Was very happy with the service. I had a lot of different currencies and couldnt be bothered to count it so just bundled it all up. Wasnt sure if I would ever hear from them again but low and behold I received a cheque in the post and was very happy. Would certainly use them again.
After an elderly relative passed away we found old currency from Greek and Turkish Cyprus. Google came up with Leftover Currency and the website was clear offering pictures of the notes that could be changed. I felt it was too good to be true and rang the office and a very pleasant member of the staff explained how it works, giving advice on how to address the envelopes to avoid theft and how to package the money. The forms were easy to fill in and the money was paid into the bank account as requested in a matter of days. I would recommend them wholeheartedly. Stephen Woodhouse Blackpool 9/3/13
