“Great customer service!
From my very first contact with this company, I was extremely impressed with the speed, efficiency, and courteous way they dealt with my enquiries and handled what could have been timing wise, a difficult situation, together with first class exchange rates.”

“First experience.
This was my first experience with Currencies Direct. From start to finish it was easy and quick. The transfer took place exactly as I wanted, and the proceeds arrived in the recipients account when they were expected (a little earlier). First class service and, as far as I could see, very competitive exchange rates. Will definitely use again.”

Was good until the app stopped working it either come up with an error message or freezes totally which is disappointing when you're tracking exchange rates for. The best rate and you can't use the service so will potentially miss out on the rate. Also the app is supposed to give exchange rate alerts and since the app doesn't work I don't know if I'm missing out on alerts. And finally I currently have money being transferred but unless I use my laptop I can't track my own money.

Excellent app, just one part of a thoroughly excellent service. 12 years of being a customer and I've never had a problem that was caused by Currencies Direct. Evrrything they do is fast and friendly and error free. (For people overseas, VERIFIEDBYVISA (a VISA service) adds an additional verification after and independent of this app and Currencies Direct. It sends an unreliable international SMS that can fail to arrive. If this happens, email Currencies Direct who will help quickly.)
