“Very happy with foreign exchange services”

Written on: 21/01/2013

In dealings with both the website and the telephone services I've been very happy with the ease of making exchanges and the tools available to help me make my exchanges. I chose UKForex because the rates were better than other options I'd used, there are no fees and it is a straightforward and secure way to transfer money from my US to UK bank accounts. I've been happy with the ability to get quotes on the spot, to use rate alerts and to chart recent history. The people on the phone have… Read Full Review

“great customer service!!!”

Written on: 20/12/2012

I am a first time user of FOREX service. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because I'm still in the middle of a transaction and the funds haven't landed in my account yet (but expect it shortly). However, I felt compelled to share my experience with the UKForex customer service which has been outstanding! The agent was thorough, clear, respectful and friendly. And very prompt in replying to my emails or phone enquiries. Now that I've "discovered" Forex, I shall use it for all my… Read Full Review

“Excellent, professional service.”

Written on: 19/12/2012 by SophGM (1 review written)

UKForex does exactly what sets out to do - providing an easy to use, inexpensive and professional service. The website is simple to navigate, and provides more than enough information on how to complete your transactions, including up to the minute rate charts and highly competitive custom rates. The staff are helpful and will answer any questions, also making sure everything is in place before completing any transactions. It might seem daunting to put your money through any service that is not… Read Full Review

“Reliable and great customer service”

Written on: 10/12/2012 by draeVT (1 review written)

I've used UK Forex for about 7 years for transferring money between the US and UK and they offer a great, efficient service with excellent customer support. Incredibly helpful - will usually deal with the same point of contact throughout the transaction process who will call and alert me when monies have come through or rate achieved. Best of all it's a 24 hour service world wide - there are toll free numbers in most areas - they call you to confirm each transaction. Can not recommend more… Read Full Review

This is the third or fourth time I've used UKForex and it's been a straightforward process each time. I'm very happy with the service and it's very economical. It's good to have the flexibility of using the internet to initiate the transaction but then to speak to a real person to confirm the details!… Read Full Review

“Great service & rates to make the bank equivalent...”

Written on: 28/11/2012 by Showes (1 review written)

A friend recommended this website to me and I did a lot of research into the best way to bring my money over. I compared a lot of rates and overall cost including fees. I'm saving hundreds of dollars by using these guys rather than my regular bank. Considering money is getting transferred and the time differences, they do everything amazingly promptly. I was happily surprised at every step at how easy and quick it all was… Read Full Review

“Helpful service and great rates”

Written on: 28/10/2012 by chulann (1 review written)

I was attracted by the good rates. They are a big improvement over the high street banks. I am always worried when doing this kind of transactions online but UKForex were helpful and quick to setup the account - though it does take a day or two because they have to check documentation. There were also no hidden charges and the transactions were as quick as you can get for a service like this - would obviously be nice if they could be a bit quicker, but that's a minor quibble. I have recommended… Read Full Review

“Can't Be Beaten”

Written on: 16/10/2012 by Geoff. (1 review written)

I regularly need to transfer GBS into Rands Congratulations, Uk forex you can't be beaten for speed of service or exchange rates. My latest transfer was needed urgently and decided on the weekend when trading was closed, but by allowing me to secure a spot deal at 20.00 on Sunday night, (The Australian trade is 11 hours in front of the U.K. ), It was ready for you to action and the funds were in the South African bank by Tuesday. Faultless… Read Full Review

Nataliedixon's Response to Geoff.'s Review

Written on: 22/10/2012

I have been using UK Forex now for a few years. I transfer money for payment of goods from the UK to Europe. The banks were taking a percentage and fees prior to that. So I have a dedicated account manager. He is excellent - Thanks Alex! He called a few months ago when he saw the Polish currency take a dive and I exchanged a large amount and secured that rate with minimal payment up front. It has saved me a substantial amount. Today it saved me £400+ in one transfer. If he hadn't called I would not have known as busy running the business. I cannot recommend this company highly enough and there is no comparison with the service or rates from the banks. Really good company and great staff.

“Speedy Transactions”

Written on: 24/09/2012

Transferring money from the U.S. to the UK can prove quite expensive, thanks to the American banks' charges for online/wire services. UKForex's U.S. bank account enables customers to reduce those charges a little, as U.S. bank to U.S. bank wires are cheaper than US bank to UK bank wire fees. UKForex also transfers your money very quickly into a UK bank. The biggest drawback with the service is UKForex's imposition of a customer service charge or fee. This can be waivered if you agree to a… Read Full Review

“Easy, professional and painless FX transfer”

Written on: 20/09/2012 by rahulmassey (1 review written)

I needed to buy Indian rupees to make some investments in the Indian market. For those of you that don;t know, INR is an exotic currency with some serious regulatory red tape to purchase. This was my first time using UK Forex, and they made the process quick and easy. To start of with, the rate I was quoted was only 1-odd INR below the mid-market rate...a massive saving compared to the 4-odd INR my bank was asking (for a 10k transfer, the difference would gave been about £40+!)Secondly, there… Read Full Review

“Why go elsewhere, UKForex is simple the very best”

Written on: 15/09/2012 by Reacher33 (1 review written)

My wife and I live in Cyprus and moved here three years ago. Having arrived on the island we used another currency transfer company and were disappointed with the service, then over two years ago we placed our spot transfers in the very safe hands of UKForex and their service is fast, efficient and reliable. Furthermore, the spot rates are always very good, competitive and the web based service is so simple to use and it is very easy to register. We accumulate our pensions in the UK and then… Read Full Review

“Fabulous International Money Transfer Service”

Written on: 15/09/2012

I am engaged to an American lady so I use the UK Forex service for moving money overseas from the UK. I found the exchange rate to be very competitive, the online payment process to be simple and well explained. I have used the service twice already with no problems whatsoever and will be using it again in future. I also liked that UK Forex call you to ensure that fraud/security checks have been completed before you can use the service and also make contact to see if they can assist you through… Read Full Review

“Best customer focused service”

Written on: 14/09/2012

If you want to transfer money overseas it doesn't matter if you want to transfer thousands or hundreds, you will get excellent customer service. Very polite and customer focused operators will tailor the service to meet your needs. Exchange rate is excellent in comparison to banks and western union and the fee (if any) very reasonable. My first 2 transfers were free of charge and because I send money regularly it doesn't cost me a penny. Ukforex offers ecellent service where you as a customer… Read Full Review
