Very straightforward, no hidden charges together with the best exchange rates. Excellent service. Highly recommended.
Best exchange rates ever and excellent service.
Very professional and personal service. Gave me a better deal than Transferwise and HiFx
I have always had prompt and helpful service from FCD. The transfer system can be relied on and you get a much better exchange rate than banks, with a small transfer fee. You feel that you are getting a personal service.
Super efficient, very knowledgable, responsive, friendly and the best rates I could find.
The advice you gave me saved me 6500 pounds as currency rate was fixed by deposit on our house move.
Transactions are easy to do and the exchange rate is far better than anyone else gives. Great service, glad I found them!!
