What our customers say about us

A very competitive

A very competitive, easy to understand and fast service. The exchange rate I received from The Currency Shops associates was much more competitive than either my UK or Australian bank was able to offer and ended up saving me hundreds of dollars.


Was able to source exactly

Great to deal with and excellent market knowledge. Was able to source exactly what I needed in a short time. Will use this service again soon.

Rebecca was lovely and very helpful

Accidentally phoned these guys while getting quotes for foreign exchange. They found the best rate in town, then also the best agent to use for international transfers. $0 charged, great customer service, highly recommended for all your foreign exchange needs.
