Hi Everyone,

I have been using Money Corp to change my sterling to euros for the past year, 

In a thread (that I can no longer find) a couple of months ago I read about a different company that offered a better rate. I looked into it at the time and found this to be true, unfortunateley, however, I can not remember the name of this company  (It's an age thing!!!!).

Can anyone help by telling me who they use and about their experiences?

Thanks

I have used Money Corp previously for stage payments on our quad on phase 2.

For short visits to Spain I have used Crown Currency Exchange and at the moment the rate is 1.1865 for home delivery 28.09.09 - 11.12.09.

We will need to make our final payment on our quad soon so will be very interested to read the answers to your question.

We use HIFX to transfer smaller amounts to cover the mortgage etc and to draw out when we are in Spain for spending. You can set up an online account with them and then do it yourself from home and providing you transfer over £500 you get a good rate (better than going to Intercash). The money is in your Spanish bank account within 3-4 working days.

Hope this helps

hello all

I have an agency with Currencies Direct and they will make the whole process very simple for you,

they offer top rates and some of their transfers like their regular payment plan are done for free,

they offer fixed rate future contracts which can protect you from currency fluctuations which may be perfect for house completions,

if I give them your details they will make the contact with you, if you wish to avail of their services PM me with your contact details and I´ll do the rest

one more thing, they even have a reasonably local office( La Zenia)

Hi,

     I used Currency Direct when paying my final payment on our Penthouse. You should be able to negoiate with them. I was told by a banking friend in the city not to except a quote that was .005 less than the exchange rate ie if the rate is 1.200 then don't except less than 1.195 as they are still making a fair bit of money. This is only for large amounts though ie your final 60% payment.
