|Travel FX Summary|
"First time purchasing travel money online and the process was incredibly simple. From the bank transfer, through the timely emails, to delivery of my cash this morning took about 36 hours. Unlike another reviewer, I was happy with the mix of notes I received (only 1 large denomination). Will use again and recommend to family & friends."
"This must be the easiest and most convenient way I have ever bought travel currency. Like others I was a little unsure about dealing over the internet but reading such positive reviews helped me make up my mind to go ahead. The whole transaction was very straightforward with good communication from placing deal to arrival of currency. I have already recommended to family and friends and will undoubtedly use again in future."
"Found this site using a comparison site and was impressed with their dollar rate compared to the high street. I was a little nervous about sending so much money but was fine. The company don't accept debit or credit card payment so email you the sort code and account number to send the money to using your bank's transfer facility. Paid Friday night, money came out of my bank straight away. The company are closed at the weekend so didn't get confirmation email of money received until Monday morning. About an hour later I got an email saying my money had been sent out special deliver, insured and guaranteed before 1pm the next day. The money arrived at about 10:30 and with small and large bills so all an all would definitely recommend this company and would use again and again."
"Well pleased with the service, will be using again , already have been recomending to friends"
"WOW! I am SO impressed - easy to use, efficient and super-quick delivery...and the best rate available. I will definitely be recommending this super-service to friends and family...and will look no further for my own hoiday money in the future!"
"Unfortunately not as efficient the second time. Had to chase up progress twice by telephone. I would add a note of caution, you do get your currency in high denomination notes and it's an extra £10 if you want otherwise"
"I have always restricted my search for foreign currency to the high street but decided, due to the extortionate fees charged by banks for buying currency with a debit card, to give the internet a chance. I was pleased with the exchange rates offered for both US$ & CA$ by Travel FX and held my breath while I pressed the 'buy currency' button ! The process was so smooth I wondered why I hadn't done it before. I ordered my US$ on Sunday afternoon and they were delivered on Tuesday morning - following this success I orderd CA$ on Tuesday afternoon and they were delivered on Thursday morning. I received e-mails confirming where my order was up to - order placed, money received, order despatched - and it couldn't have been easier. I made my payment through internet banking - quick, efficient and easy !"
"very good system,easy to use and very prompt delivery,i got my cash on the day i asked for it to be delivered.only problem is that i ordered £1000 of euro's i got the cash and there were 5 x €100 notes.not very good,i would have prefered nothing over €50 notes."
"I was a bit dubious about using bank transfers as other sites I have used have accepted debit cards. However the transaction was completely trouble free. I transferred the cash on Friday and the foreign currency arrived on Tuesday. Good rates and service. Highly recommended."
"My currency was received today. The service was up to it's usual excellent standard."
"Compliments on safe delivery of order no.15-006855.You can add me to your fan club. A simple and quick transaction. David Steele"
"I was a little worried about buying currency online at first but the rates were better by far so i read some of the other reviews on here and needed to look to further. Quick and easy to order, great communication with emails and provided me with a tracking number too once it was dispatched, ordered on Saturday and arrived at my work place Tuesday first thing. Brilliant service and would use again for sure, one of the best rates online I found."
"I have never used the internet for travel money before but I am very impressed with the efficiency of Travel FX. Cant fault any of the service I received and would definitely use this company again."
"4th time I've used this service and once again not let down. First class rate and quick delivery. Highly recommended"
"First time I've used Travel FX, ordered online Wed am, delivered Friday am as requested. Got confirmation & dispatched emails fine. Great rate, first class service will def use again & hope this review prompts others to do so!"
"First time i have used this service , really impressed , will recommend to friends ."
"I used Travel FX for the first time this week. Service was excellent, the rate was the best on offer and delivery was earlier than I had specified. Paying by internet avoided the bank fee for using a debit card to buy currency so it was a good deal all round. I would certainly use them again and recommend them to others."
"Excellent rates and a fast and efficient service. I was dubious to start with and I am happy to be proved wrong.I would Certainly use Travelfx again."
"A very efficient service with good communication throughout. I will have no hesitation in using again."
"Many thanks for the excellent service. Like others berfore me I was worried about using an internet service I did not know. However you have been as good as I expected, and a good rate of exchange as well"
"Many thanks for a great service, I will definitely be recommending your company to anyone who wants the best exchange rate. Pity the bank were not as good!"
"Easy transaction with good communication and speedy delivery. Highly recommended and will definitely use Travel FX again."
"First time using the service and can advise that it was excellent. The only thing I wasn't too keen on was that we received large denomination notes. I think you could request specific notes but it would cost extra...which was a shame...would've given them 5 stars if it hadn't cost extra. By far the best rate of currency around too. Excellent service from beginning to end. I was a little wary about paying money into a bank account of a company I'd never used before, but went on the basis of the reviews being good and no-one had been ripped off. Will use again but may pay extra to specify denomination of notes."
"Excellent value. Excellent communication. Excellent speedy delivery. Just excellent all round."
