I came across CompareHolidayMoney.com when I typed "Best rates for South African Rand" into Google but when I clicked the website displayed which showed the best rate "TravelFX.co.uk" I discovered that they only accept bank tranfers and state "WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY CARDS". Thinking this was odd, I read more reviews of Travel FX and saw that they claim to be part of Metro Bank PLC (which it appears they do not) and there are hundreds of reviews from angry customers saying they transferred...

Ordered the money and arranged fast transfer the same time. Had acknowledgement of order, but no confirmation of receipt of funds. No way of tracking online and telephone only available 9.30-4.30. Here I am no wondering whether my transfer went into a black hole or has been received. I called TravelFX who send the money out and they at least have heard of this site, but that was all they were unable to trace my order. I shall have to wait until tomorrow to call them and considering the... (read more)

I am always a little wary of ordering currency on line, but took the time to check out that Travel FX are a bona fide operation. It was well worth it because they seem to consistently offer the best rates. The currency arrived by Post Office Special Delivery the very next day. I will continue to use Travel FX and am more than happy to recommend them. (read more)

When i checked online for best holiday currency rates i found Travelfx gave the best rates. I was a bit concerned initially, sending money to a company i did not know. I checked a few sites that posted reviews by customers that dealt with them and found an overwhelming positive response from satisfied people who dealt with them. I transferred money from my account into a Travelfx account and received an email of confirmation.The following day they sent an email to let me know the money... (read more)

I went with Travelfx as they offered the best rate. 3 working days after placing the order still waiting for money. Contacted Travelfx who basically put the blame on Royal Mail as Travelfx had dispatched the money. I had to phone 4 times to enquire where the money was, the person I spoke to and his manager. At no time did Travelfx contact me with any upddate. Travlefx response to me not receiving the money before I left for the airport was 'Royal Mail will leave a calling card' (after I... (read more)

First time i have used this service. Travelfx had the best rates around. They emailed me to confirm my order. Emailed me again when the money had cleared and finally sent me an email when it was posted and a tracking number. I was a bit dubious about sending money by bank transfer but i must say it all was very smooth and efficient. As long as you order in plenty of time in case of any hiccups with the post. I received my email to say it had been posted in the afternoon and received my money... (read more)

Really trouble free transaction, all went like clockwork, little concerned about transferring the money first but Travelfx kept me informed at all times by email as the transaction progressed. Currency arrived on time as promised. Excellent, would use again. (read more)

On the Friday before August bank holiday weekend, I realised I'd not bought any Euros and we were leaving early Wednesday, now only 1 working day away. Reviews suggested Travel FX were pretty reliable and their rates were at least as good as any I found elsewhere. I was a little alarmed when their email with payment details to make the bank transfer arrived at 12.27 and included a message that noon was the cut off and any orders received after that wouldn't be processed for 24 hours but to...

I ordered 500£ in chinese Yuans. Money arrived in 3 working days, so the next day delivery on their website is a bit optimistic. Rate at 9.50 was quite good, but I later found out that cityforex.com (based in the City of London) had slightly better rates, 9.54 GBPCNY, and walk-in cashiers, so I think I would go to cityforex for their better rates and walk-in service in the future. Pls note that this is no fake review. Pls test them with a small amount before you send them 7500£ I am... (read more)

TravelFx offer a fantastic service and a great exchange rate!!!
I ordered on Monday night, but once I had received the email the currency had been rounded to reflect bill denominations available, so I came out with a little less than I wanted (but cheaper in £s). I rang them the following day to have the amount increased so it would split 4 ways more easily and they were very helpful over the phone with no problems at all with my request.
I then went into cautious mode and wondered if it... (read more)
