"I always try to target the best exchange rate and Moneycorp makes that very easy for me to do"
My story - Michael Houghton
"I always try to target the best exchange rate each month and reserve that for my transfer and Moneycorp makes that very easy for me to do."
"I'm a New Zealander and I've been in Ireland for three years now after having spent the past ten moving myself (and my money) around the world. I also build websites for clients all
over the world so I frequently have to take payments in USD, AUD and NZD.
When I first arrived in Ireland I was taking my money directly out from ATMs and accepting whatever the rate being offered there and then. However, I worked out that I was losing well over €3000 on bad exchange rates a year. I was also being hit hard by fees; being charged both transfer and receiving fees by my bank.
I saw an advert for Moneycorp in the Irish Times and decided to give them a go. I have to say I think what Moneycorp do is fantastic. With much better rates and fees I'm saving thousands a year.
I always try to target the best exchange rate each month and reserve that for my transfer and Moneycorp makes that very easy for me to do. This means that now instead of losing money on rates when I exchange currencies, I am actually often making a profit.
I might've come for the rates, but I stay for the customer service. I get email replies within ten minutes and my account manager at the Irish office is always very helpful. That, and the flexibility I get with Moneycorp to manage the multiple currencies I need to exchange, makes handling my international finances very easy.
In short, I don't hesitate to recommend their services."
