“Very Good Rates”

Written on: 23/05/2014 by Bowenam235 (1 review written)

Very happy with the rates and service provided by this company. I use them when we travel to the Eurozone & Scandinavia. The rates advertised at the shop are nothing special, but if you pre-order online, I've found they consistently have the best rates. Just a 3 cent difference on a £1000 exchange is £30 of holiday money you'll never see again. So it's well worth shopping around. I always book the transaction online via their website, then pay/collect in person from the Hammersmith… Read Full Review

“Good Service”

Written on: 20/11/2013

at first i was skeptical, then decided to send euros by post to strand office, i was given the rates of the day the money arrived (next day) and the sterling was in my account the next day, the whole transaction took less then 2 days. very happy with the rate and the service. the only thing missing was an email to keep up dated. but since it only took 2 days it was not a problem. thank you very much for the good service. much appreciated… Read Full Review

“Unbelievably Brilliant! Can't recommend enough.”

Written on: 09/10/2013 by Kimmie767 (1 review written)

BESTFOREIGNEXCHANGE.COM - (THOMAS EXCHANGE GLOBAL LTD) I'd never used an online money exchange before and as I had a bit of time I looked into it. I was looking for Croatian Kunas and spent about a week watching the rates fluctuate. In the end I settled for this company and read the Terms & Conditions. I didn't much like the fact that I had to send off proof of address and ID but this is the law and has to be done. Anyway, I was worried because they appeared to be asking for bank statements… Read Full Review

“Best rates”

Written on: 26/08/2013 by Baljordan (1 review written)

I use best foreign exchange every time we travel, I order on the web and pick up from their nearest branch, never had any problems and get a good rate and never had any complaints about their service, one tip is the liverpool st branch has very large queues at all times of the day so I use hammersmith, it's just inside the station, will be using tomorrow for my euros. Also you need I.D ie driving licence, passport etc… Read Full Review

“Absolutely No Complaints”

Written on: 23/06/2013 by Katy-Stephen (1 review written)

Like everybody else who uses these sites, I was a little apprehensive. This was the 4th time we`d bought our travel money on the internet and it gets no less stressful I can tell you. Using Best Foreign Exchange for the first time, we`d actually been put off once before because of the requirement to provide scanned document images etc, but this time their rate was so much better than the rest. Anyway, we applied, and next morning I received a telephone call from them, asking if the application… Read Full Review

“Waste of my time and theirs”

Written on: 05/06/2013

I ordered Moroccan Dirham through their website for collection today. I arrived at the branch and presented the order form. They took payment from my debit card. I was then told that they did not have enough Moroccan Dirham to pay me and that I had to wait for two hours. They offered no apology and so they had to refund my entire payment. They would not refund to the card I had paid on and would only give a cash refund. They had two opportunities to check their stock: once when I ordered… Read Full Review

“Good rates, poor service”

Written on: 10/04/2013 by mitfordsisters (2 reviews written)

This is about the online / post service. My experience with them was very stressful. First of all, they did not respond to an email query I'd sent, which was simply asking if my scanned passport and bank statement were OK. Despite having sent my documents and the payment before the time specified, they did not send the money on the day as promised. Then their website was down all weekend and every email I sent came back with a 'permanently failed' message. I was so stressed out because I… Read Full Review

“Excellent ”

Written on: 27/11/2012

After being ripped off by the uncle Scrooges money exchangers on Oxford street pretending to be my friend, I went to these people by accident. They gave me about 5% more than Oxford street. Forget the post office and Thomas cooks, these people are thieves. Also the one on Oxford street near the Oxford street tube station is awfull they are trying to make about 20% on each transaction....stay away from them. Thee guys are good, small margin high turnover. They are a bit weird with the demand… Read Full Review

“Are their rates for real?”

Written on: 12/05/2012

I have attempted to buy USD for home delivery from these people four times in the last 2 days. Each time there has been no response to my order. After waiting the advised 10 minutes I have 'phoned their Head Office and been fobbed off with excuses such as 'they must be changing the rates' and told to re-send my order. Don't bother with these people on-line - their quoted rate for delivery is not as good as it looks - they add on £7.50 whereas sites like Travel FX quote a rate including the… Read Full Review

“Never had any problems with them”

Written on: 26/04/2012

I've used them for over 4 years but only directly in their branch on The Strand. They usually come up top on travelmoneymax.com but of course it depends on the currency. To the person who says they can't be real - they have small shops and there's usually a queue. So presumably survive on high volume with thin margins - much like Amazon do for books… Read Full Review

“RUINING FINANCIAL MARKET”

Written on: 14/02/2012

I HAVE SEEN LAST FEW MONTHS, BEST FOREING EXCHANGE IS A DUPLICATE OF THOMAS EXCHANGE GLOBAL. SOMETIME THEY OFFER THE RATE MORE THAN THE FOREX CURRENT RATE RUNNING IN THE FOREX DIRECTORY. I DON'T KNOW, HOW THEY DO THIS BUSINESS AND MAKE MONEY. THIS IS VERY SUPECIOUS TO ME. I BOOKED MY ORDER, AFTER HALF AN HOUR I CANCELLED MY ORDER. THIS IS NOT ONLY CONCERN OF MY TRANSACTION. THIS IS THE ISSUE OF LEGAL SECTOR, THEY SHOULD CHECK ON IT AND SEE HOW THEY MAKE MONEY. SECONDLY THEY ARE GIVING VERY… Read Full Review

“I cannot recommend this company enough. I - like some...”

Written on: 23/03/2011

I cannot recommend this company enough. I - like some others - was a bit nervous about using the services of the company and making such a large electronic transfer so I called up their head office. They were very nice, explained the process and the timescale i could expect.

Money arrived as promised, you CANNOT find a better exchange rate for cash anywhere. Please dont worry about this company, they are thoroughly professional and have made me a very happy holidayer before even leaving the… Read Full Review

I was apprehensive about the security of this transaction, but took the plunge as it was the best exchange rate. Received my money today without delay and free of hassle. Thought this might ease the stress for people thinking of using this service… Read Full Review
