CompareHolidayMoney.com was launched in November 2010 by Dan Morley and Peter Rudin-Burgess; two friends and colleagues who worked together at a bureau de change in Cornwall. In their spare time, Dan who worked in IT and Peter who worked in Accounts built a tool that regularly checked the exchange rates on offer by other currency suppliers so it could be used to automate tasks that the pair were doing manually each day. After the business they worked for closed down, Dan and Peter re-built their tool and released it to the public; and so Compare Holiday Money was born!
Over the years the website has evolved far beyond the simple aggregator tool it was built around. Today, we operate currency comparison websites in Germany, Australia and the Republic of Ireland, and every year we help millions of travellers to find the best currency deals.

Our product comparisons are totally unbiased and we never allow companies to pay to be at the top of any results. Instead, some companies pay us a small commission for referring customers which helps to fund our costs and keeps our service free to you. This does not affect the quotes you receive or the price you pay.
We collect and publish real customer reviews of the companies that feature on our website to help potential customers make informed decisions, and to provide companies with feedback on things they do well and things they could improve on.
We recognise that we have a responsibility as publishers to ensure the reviews we collect are genuine, honest and accurate, and in the interests of transparency we have compiled this guide which explains our reviews policy in more detail.
All reviews are subject to internal moderation before they are published. The moderation process is designed to increase the quality and integrity of reviews rather than act as a form of censorship. As publishers, we have a legal duty to ensure the reviews that appear on our website are genuine and accurate, and while we do not remove reviews just because a company has asked us to, we may remove reviews that:
We endeavour to moderate all reviews within 72 hours of submission, and the moderator's decision is final. If a review meets the above criteria it will be published immediately on our website. Otherwise, it will be permanently deleted. Once published, we do not delete, amend or modify reviews in any way, with the following exceptions:
Reviews must be written by genuine customers of the company being reviewed. If we suspect a review is fake we may ask the author for more information before we publish it. If a company flags a review that we have already published, we will investigate with both the company and the author before deciding on whether to keep, amend or delete it.
Our reviews platform is constantly monitored to prevent automated abuse and to detect abnormal review patterns, and reviews that are suspected to be fraudulent are automatically removed.
