I first met Ashley at the PITSL earlier this year. He kept in touch and has helped us tremendously as we prepare for our house completion. He has provided an excellent service and I would have no qualms recommending him to anybody considering buying abroad.

Very friendly and helpful advisors made the transaction from Euro to sterling an easy task which I had previously dreaded on account of being "robbed" by the Cypriot banks twenty years ago when transferring Sterling to Euro. The telephone service is outstanding and you feel reassured that your money is in safe hands whilst being able to transfer when you make the call without delay.

I recently sold my house in France, and completed a currency exchange via Place In The Sun Currency. This was a fantastic hand-holding service which made, what could have been very stressful, into a smooth and hassle-free experience. I was allocated a Currency Consultant who kept in touch with me from when I first sold my house in France and advised regularly on currency movements. This meant that by waiting a few months I increased the value of my euros by £3,800! PITS Currency are in constant contact with the market so gave excellent advice. Once the decision was made to sell, they have the technology is all in place for a safe and smooth transfer of funds. A great experience, highly recommended!

I was extremely impressed with the service and efficiency that I received while in the process of selling my house abroad and needing a broker to oversee the transaction. It is a very stressful process when you are dealing with a lot of funds that needs transferred over from Euros to Sterling and you are relying on a broker you have never dealt with before to transfer your funds. However the transaction was done smoothly, efficiently and very professionally. I would not hesitate to you Place in the Sun again if required in the future. Lauren my consultant kept me updated at all times and was very professional and helpful throughout the process. I was extremely happy with the outcome.

Can't thank Lauren enough, she was supportive and informative. Made everything from this end effortless, and her response times where amazing. I really could not have asked for more, it is a scary process making a big purchase like this abroad but Lauren was very helpful, friendly and professional. Thank you Lauren, I have already recommended you to my Sister.

We chatted to A Place in the Sun Currency when we attended an exhibition last year. We finally found a perfect holiday home which we have recently purchased.
