We are a leading website marketing firm based in the UK. We are expanding our operations into Europe, particularly Germany. In order to do so we have looked at various currency transfer companies and found that Compare Money Transfer was a fast and efficient way of finding the best rates – the site has saved us a lot of money already and will no doubt do so in the years to come as our business expands across Europe.
