A Place in the Sun Currency Ltd and their commercial arm, Currency Index, have provided me with first class services for many years. When converting currencies there is more than just the financial savings involved, the personal level of involvement, care, understanding, trust and respectfulness is exceptional. I cannot recommend Grace and this team highly enough.

Why waste your time looking elsewhere?
Many exchange “professionals” never give the highest rate you want without haggling or doing a lengthy online comparison.
Ashley at APITS had been fist class and has made all my foreign..
private bank transfers etc an absolute pleasure..
10 out 10 Sir from me..

We have used A Place In the Sun Currency before and found the process very easy, along with extremely competitive exchange rates.
The account handlers are very responsive and helpful too.

Overall, we would thoroughly recommend using A Place in the Sun Currency for large foreign exchanges.

Mathew Boyle was exceptional. We were converting a large amount of money from Euros to Sterling and Mathew went above and beyond to ensure we were well looked after and got the best rate possible. Mathew spent hours off his own back thinking of the best route forward for us to maximise the amount we received in sterling. The market was changing by the minute but Matthew was always very calm, professional and ensured we had the best up to date information on the markets for us to make the best informed decision we could. Would highly recommend the company and especially Matthew Boyle.

Have worked with a number of people at the company for quite some years now. They managed currency exchanges for my buying and selling properties overseas as well as personal transfers. Grace Smyth is an excellent person to work with. She is friendly and all transactions are carried out in a most professional manner.

It’s always difficult knowing who to trust when dealing with a large sim if your own money. A place in the sun currency made by me feel reassured that my money would be safe. They provided a personal consultant from the moment I decided to sell my house in Portugal, to the final transferring of funds to the UK. My consultant Luke understood my needs and gave the correct amount of attention without being pushy. He kept an eye on the rates and helped me to make the right decision as to when to transfer the funds to get the best rate. Best of all, unlike other money exchange companies, they did not insist on holding my money until the rate was right, but gave three days to transfer the money once the decision was made.

We first met Matt Boyle back in March at the Place in the sun roadshow. Having put an offer in on a property, we had little to no idea about exchanging large sums of money and the vast fluctuations between different banks and companies so attended a seminar about large volume currency transfers. What we heard was enlightening so we took ourselves off to speak to Matt in person, one of the best things we did in the whole property buying process! He talked us through the steps and gave us his card, there was no pressure or sales pitch whatsoever. Over the next few months, we spoke regularly about the markets and the impacts of the economy on them, and he helped guide us to exchange money at good rates when the market picked up! It was a very smooth process throughout, and Matt was a pleasure to deal with!

Trouble-free currency exchange to move large amounts of money (eg for house purchase. I find the rates excellent and the low. Once you have an account set up it’s a quick phone call when you see a good rate on the internet and the deal is done.
Highly recommended.
