Found all the customer service team that I dealt with extremely helpful but a big shout out to Luke Dyson for guiding us along with our transfer of funds. Thank you.

5 stars

I found the team at A Place in the Sun Currency to be the most helpful and knowledgeable. As someone new to the process of exchanging money (to aid a house purchase in France) they went above and beyond what I could have hoped for. The rates they offered were very competitive and they reacted very quickly if I saw the rates improve. A special mention to Lauren who looked after our account - she was faultless and we are very grateful we found her.
We would definitely recommend their service to others.

Absolutely brilliant!
It was our first time dealing with currency exchange company in the UK and was quite nervous to send all our savings in order to buy our dream holiday home in Cyprus :-)
Luke and all of the team were fantastic, answered all of our questions without any delay.
They helped us to secure a very good rate and save us a lot.
I wish them all the best and keep up with the good job and excellent service!
Thank you!

Easy to deal with. Lauren was very polite and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Competitive rates and very helpful throughout the whole process of transferring pounds to euros into a Spanish bank account. Would definitely recommend this company.

If you need help with foreign currency, especially if you are buying a home overseas, then don't think twice, sign up with A Place in the Sun Currency Ltd. They have been fantastic from start to finish. Our Currency Consultant, Lauren Buckner has basically held our hand throughout the process and got us the best deals available, much better than our own bank who we have banked with for over 30 years!!!! Lauren has made the whole thing easy for us and we could not be happier:)
I would not hesitate recommending the service and in using the service again, and will probably need to now we have two homes in different countries. Thanks a million Lauren and A Place in the Sun Currency:)

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.

Very quick & easy/clear communication with Ashley throughout the process of converting & transferring currency. Has helped to avoid the stress of moving money. The money also was received quickly.

5 stars

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..
I’m so glad I called you..
