It is always nerve racking when buying abroad and handling so much cash. The place in the sun currency team have been amazing! Very professional and reassuring. I was able to talk to them about any concerns and I was reassured each time. Would highly recommend them! Thank you for helping to make my dream come true!

It’s been an absolute pleasure dealing with APITSC. Simon Eastman made everything crystal clear, handled every niggly little query I had with total professionalism and efficiency and is a credit to this company. I would definitely recommend using them and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. Thank you so much.

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.
