About Us

Our service is specifically designed for anyone making overseas payments to buy, and maintain, an overseas property. We understand the importance of an efficient and transparent currency service and have an experienced team in place to help make your money go further and secure your very own place in the sun

From a deposit on a house through to settling the balance, for regular monthly payments or one-off items, A Place in the Sun Currency ensures your funds reach the right destination, at the right time, at a highly competitive rate.

A Place in the Sun Currency is a joint venture between APITS Ltd. (A Place in the Sun) and Currency Index. APITS Ltd is the publisher of the official magazine of the hit Channel 4 series A Place in the Sun¸ the organiser of A Place in the Sun Live exhibitions and the team behind aplaceinthesun.com.

Currency Index was set up in 2008 and since then has helped thousands of customers transfer money overseas. It is an Authorised Payment Institution under FCA regulations.

A Place in the Sun Currency Ltd is authorised by the FCA to provide payment services under the Payment Services Regulations 2017 (firm reference number 790769), and is supervised by HMRC under the 4th anti-money laundering directive (reference XCML00000120951). You can verify both of these independently on the FCA and HMRC websites.

Our team and our banking are UK-based, and we operate Safeguarded bank accounts as per FCA regulations. Unlike online-only services, we are also only ever a phone call away, for any questions you may have.
