A friend of mine pointed me in the direction of this website when I was buying a classic car from overseas, naturally I wanted to get the best exchange rate possible in order to help cover shipping and import taxes. After a quick browse of the website it became clear an FX broker was my best option so I used the comparison table to compare my shortlist of candidates and requested some quotes. I was contacted nearly straight away and after playing two of the brokers off for a little while I secured a great rate. I literally saved thousands as I was initially going to use my bank just for the 'security' factor like i'm sure a lot of others do but after a quick comparison I realised all the brokers are authorised by the FCA just like the banks so my money was going to be safe regardless. The money I saved on the transfer paid for the shipping and import taxes which was massive boost and I couldn't be happier with the service. I would recommend this website to anyone looking at buying property, emigrating or making payments overseas as you can save some serious money! All the Best,
