“Just the intrusive questions.”

Written on: 20/06/2014 by rgolledge (1 review written)

Registration was simple and the Email instructions were clear and straight forward. Had to make a phone call to confirm registration. Didn't like the intrusive questioning on why I was transferring the money, what I was purchasing and why, apparently they need to know for money laundering, which in my book is a smoke screen to get as much information about you. My bank didn't need to know! But the rate was excellent so gritted my teeth. The ability to transfer funds by debit card was quick and… Read Full Review

“What can I say other than it's made my life easier!”

Written on: 29/01/2014

My daughter is spending a year in Canada & I needed an easy way of sending money over due to problems with new bank accounts. I came across Travelex whilst searching online and the 'no fees' appealed to me. My initial experience was simple & so easy. Any question I had was answered. I've now used the service 3 times and it literally takes 2 minutes to transfer funds and the rates are very good. I would definately recommend their service to anybody… Read Full Review

“Why did no one tell me about these guys sooner!!”

Written on: 06/01/2014 by jcduk (1 review written)

My daughter is living and studying overseas for a year. So along with the usual "bank of mother" requests, I now had to deal with and help her with payments from her UK bank to her Japanese one AND to her Japanese University. My first attempt was paying her accommodation fees using my high street bank. Exchange Rate was outrageous (I reckon I lost about £45 over Travellex rate which I had checked), FEE was nearly £30 and it took them a week to get the money to the University bank… Read Full Review

“Payment in Euros to Germany”

Written on: 19/12/2013

Once again, a good service with a competitive Exchange Rate, a little better than my Bank quoted. I saved about £25 overall on a transaction involving a payment of just over 2,000 Euros. I would recommend this service. During the last 12 months I have made (I think)4 foreign payments using Travelex International and all have been completed entirely satisfactorily… Read Full Review

“Transfer to Son in USA”

Written on: 10/10/2013

I had to transfer a modest amount of money, at short notice, from my UK Bank Account to our Son who lives in America. This is the 3rd or 4th time that I have used Travelex (Forex)for this sort of transaction - thankfully not always cash to our Son! Good rate of exchange, competitive and clearly stated fee and an easy site to navigate. The whole process took only a few minutes and I was very pleased with the service provided. I am confident that the money will be paid into the appropriate US… Read Full Review

“Brilliant - once I had got my head around it!”

Written on: 26/06/2013

I don't think the website is very clear as to the logistics of sending money abroad. I had to call the CS centre (in Canada) with questions. All told, I have managed to transfer sterling in euros with 2 cents extra in every pound, compared to my bank and also without charges (£25, from Nationwide). Now I get it - I'll be using it a lot in the future… Read Full Review

“Excellent service/very easy to use”

Written on: 28/05/2013

Set this service up in no time and agents were very prompt to call and assist me with transferring cash overseas. The whole process was painless and Travelex charges are much cheaper than anything my bank offers. I was also able to track the transaction online so I knew when the money had been sent. The only difference with transferring using my bank was a slightly lower exchange rate, presumably the margin on which Travelex will make its money… Read Full Review

“Help with the Black Art of International Payments!”

Written on: 14/05/2013 by Haybales (1 review written)

I had to transfer money from my UK account to two businesses in New Zealand. Not something I have done before so found the process and terminology a bit confusing. However, I was quickly helped by several of the Travelex traders, particularly Mira Boora, who helped me through setting up an account, deciphering one of the NZ bank details which had been incorrect on the invoice and could have caused me to make a mistake, then making the transfer. Brilliant service, which I am happy to… Read Full Review

“Thailand money transfer - far cheaper than the bank.”

Written on: 10/04/2013 by lup3nlup3n (1 review written)

My wife needed to send £800 to Thailand but the last time we did it at the bank they charged us a stupidly high fee (£24!!) to do so and the exchange rate was whatever they said it would be (very low!) so decided to shop around for alternatives to the bank, eventually came across Travelex international payments. Wasn't too sure at first because wasn't totally sure how it worked, but what I did like was I was able to put in how much I was looking to send and to where and I was able to get a… Read Full Review

“Easy way to move money internationally”

Written on: 28/03/2013

I used this service to move savings between countries. The initial setup was easy, prompt and efficient service on the phone for the first transaction. After the first transfer, which took around 5 days, subsequent transfers were concluded in 2-3 days. This was between Canada and the UK, most time was taken waiting for the Canadian banks (I used 2 - BMO and RBC) to process the payment. For moving larger sums there is no transaction fee, for smaller amounts there is a fee. The fee is about the… Read Full Review

“Money purchased is what is deposited. No hidden charges”

Written on: 27/03/2013 by quiver09 (1 review written)

I send funds regularly to Canada. On previous occasions I used the high street banks, but their rates were always low and the amount purchased was never the amount that was deposited. It was always less. This was because they used intermediary banks to send the funds and each bank would take their cut- even though it was a wired currency transfer in the funds of that country (so no fx conversion required) – These were hidden charges that you are never told about. With Travelex International… Read Full Review

“International Payments”

Written on: 26/03/2013 by mcparmstrong (1 review written)

This service was excellent. Fast service and a great rate of exchange. I was exchanging GBP for Euros and sending funds to a bank in Hurghada, Egypt. Everything went like clockwork and receiving bank received the funds very quickly. The only problem was that the the amount deposited into the receiving bank was less than the original quote. I'm not sure how this happened and whose fault it was. However, overall, the service proved more beneficial than using my primary current account… Read Full Review
