Very happy client

Review published ago

I have been using CurrencyFair to exchange UK sterling to Euro and transfer to a Spanish bank account for several years. The cost savings have been tremendous. I believe I've often got a better rate by placing orders and waiting a while although instant exchanges have been useful on occasions. The speed of transfers to the bank have been consistently good (although not immediate) normally within 48 hours. For anyone in a similar situation to me, I wholeheartedly recommended this company.

I feel cheated !

I received a quote for sending NZD around 12:15pm today which included bank fee and transferred the money to Currency Fair at 12:59. It was transferred to the recipient at 5.49pm but the amount sent was NZD 26.28 less that the amount quoted. I feel cheated as I chose Currency Fair as they gave the best rate.

Be aware.....

CurrencyFair is used by criminals who have remotely accessed an on line bank account, and move money from that account to CurrencyFair. This happened to me very recently and whilst it is the scammer who is culpable, CurrencyFair are implicated. If you decide to use CurrencyFair you need to know if your money is safe and if all transactions are legitimate.

CurrencyFair is easy to use and makes living abroad easier. The entire process to transfer funds is not only easy to do with CurrencyFair, but they also keep you updated and send you notifications once each step is completed. I recommend CurrencyFair to everyone living abroad!

Most cost effective and easy to use currency exchange and transfer system. I stopped using banks and any other transfer services. Currencyfair was consistently the cheapest provider.

Very good financial services provider with best currency rates. Unfortunately no JPY and and little countries available for international payments which is a little drawback. But transfer fees and rates are the best in that business. Congrats to currency fair team!

It’s so easy to use CurrencyFair

Review published ago

It’s so easy to use CurrencyFair. I don’t even have to go into my bank account app separately now to transfer money as there is a direct link from the CurrencyFair app. Exchange can be done automatically once funds are received from your bank, so once you’ve paid in the amount you want, there’s no need to go back later to request the exchange. Great app, I wouldn’t use any other exchange site.

Customer service and speed of…

Review published ago

Customer service and speed of transaction are good. Gave me a worse exchange rate than initially stated though. I transferred money from Germany to Australia. You put in the amount you wish to send or you want to be received and then are given bank account details in Ireland to transfer the money to. The exchange rate that was displayed was good and I saved around €10 compared to their big competitor (on ~€3900) It said that the exchange rate displayed wouldn't be changed unless there was a sudden drop of 3% for the currency I was sending. I made the transfer to Ireland immediately and got an email 2 days later that the money arrived and that the amount in Australian dollars was soon to be credited to the bank account in Australia. The amount in Australian dollars was $30 lower than what had been displayed when I made the transfer. I thought that might have something to do with the Euro losing a bit of value over the duration of the transfer however the opposite was the case. The Euro had continuously gained value. So currencyfair just gave me a worse course than what had initially been agreed on without any reason. They show you a better exchange rate than what you might get later. I'll definitely do my next transfer with the competitor that lets you do instant bank transfers which speeds things up and doesn't give them a chance to claim that the exchange rate worked against you (which it clearly didn't at any point as I thoroughly checked). I complained and the speed of replies was astounding however they just sent me what seemed like premade emails with no explanation in that particular matter.
