Great experience!

Great experience! Noam was very thorough and communicative. He was helpful throughout the process, and I felt very comfortable turning to him for any questions. I would definitely recommend to my friends, and continue using for future transfers!

I highly recommend currency transfer

I highly recommend currency transfer. Having used their services for over seven years.

I am particularly impressed by their personal fast and safe service. Funds usually reach my account within 48 hours.

A personal thankyou to Nathan who is always available to answer any technical questions.

I highly recommend their services.

OUTSTANDING Service, super speed. 12/10

OUTSTANDING! Amazing service and super speed, smooth and efficient. I have a direct link to my account officer if I need. And best of all I am saving $00s every time compared to the daylight robbery rates the banks were giving me previously. Only a simpleton would use the main banks for any currency transfers. 12/10.
