I found Sam very helpful with a query I had. Their exchange rate was very good and Euros were delivered when expected. I will definitely be using them again and would highly recommend to others.

I have been watching the euro rate over the last few months, I was drawn to covent garden fx, they have amazing rates, fantastic reviews and are a family business. My order arrived as promised with good communication in low denomination notes as requested. I would highly recommend this company and i will definitely be using them again in the future. Thank you.

Sold 3,000 Euros

12 June 2021

I am not a review guy but this time I have to leave a review and I am very pleased it is a positive one! All the previous time that I had some left over euros from holidays, I was using local face to face shops to sell the currency (euros) for pounds. I was always "loosing" some money because the exchange rate was not that good, but because it was a small amount of euros I was ok with that. This time though because of Covid and not traveling to my country to see family and friends I had 3000e just sitting in my house. On every option for a face to face deal I was loosing from £200 up to £280 and I was not happy.

I had heard for this shop but I was always afraid to post money, especially 3000e. I took a risk to be honest, the problem now days is that there are so many scam sites with fake reviews etc. But my wife that she had used the shop in London many years ago (in person) she was telling me that it is legit. I was still afraid though. Long story short I made the order and I received the information how to post the money. I went to the post office, I asked for special delivery and to use insurance for 3000e. It was Wednesday. On Thursday I received an email that they have receive my money and they will transfer the money in my account in 1-2 days. On Friday there was no money (but I had a missed call from their shop) Today (Saturday) someone called me to inform me that they are having some problems with the bank from their end and they will try everything to "push" them to put the money in my account around 17:00pm. The guy on the phone was very nice and apologetic that I have not received the money yet. I was still a bit nervous because I know how banks can be sometimes during weekends. I checked my account around 17:00 and there was no money. So I was like ok hopefully on Monday now. But then I checked again after like 5mins and the whole amount is there! what a relief!!! so yeah guys! feel free to trust this company! The reviews are legit and the staff helpfull and professional. :)
