I've used APITS Currency a few times now and I've always been delighted with the service received. This time was no different from earlier occasions. I got a good rate, lightning quick email response from my initial request (quite late on a Friday afternoon) and the deal was done and dusted by close of business and my bank in Spain had credited my account first thing on Monday morning.

I first used APITS to transfer funds required to close the sale of my apartment in Spain and, as a novice and first-timer, they made this part of the buying process easy and stress-free. If you are a prospective client worried about all the things you need to do to organise your frequent holidays/retirement in-the-sun, then transferring funds via this company is one less thing to worry about.

We were buying a property abroad and wanted to buy Euro’s before the pound got any weaker. Aplaceinthesuncurrency exchanged our currency, holding the Euros for several weeks until needed. They are an incredibly efficient, genuine and hands on company. We would 100% recommend them. Absolutely reliable.
