Smart Currency Exchange To help you save money and make secure currency transfers when you buy an overseas property, here at Rightmove Overseas we’ve added Smart Currency Exchange, an international payment specialist, to our select group of recommended service providers.


Smart Currency Exchange specialises in transferring money for anyone buying property abroad, whether it be as a holiday or permanent home, or for investment purposes. They not only offer better exchange rates than high street banks and have ways of protecting your money against inevitable exchange rate fluctuations, but they also consider customer service a priority. This makes Smart Currency Exchange an ideal partner for Rightmove Overseas.

You can read more about how Smart Currency Exchange, which is authorised by the Financial Services Authority, could help you transfer money abroad in the Currency Zone section of Rightmove Overseas. There you will also find a link to a free currency guide, a currency converter that gives you an immediate quote for a currency transfer and instructions on how to open an account with Smart Currency Exchange.

Typical of someone Smart Currency Exchange recently helped to realise the dream of buying abroad is Jennifer Appleby. Buying a home in Greece meant Jennifer was keen to get the best possible exchange rate when she needed to transfer around £125,000 into euros.

Timing was critical with Jennifer too, as she bought when the euro was falling in value against Sterling, so she wanted a company that would guide her through the transfer process without using complicated jargon. Jennifer had previously only used a bank to exchange currency but was advised to use a currency specialist and she chose Smart Currency Exchange – she has since recommended them to two friends.

Another satisfied client of Smart Currency Exchange is Raymond Brewster who makes regular transfers to Spain to cover mortgage payments on his property near Alicante, where he spends the winter months. Raymond was looking for a new international payments specialist after the one he was using, refusing to use a bank – “I am NOT going to a bank – they charge you for everything!” – he found Smart Currency Exchange.

“The second time I transferred was so quick,” said Raymond. “The first time I obviously had to fill in the form on-line first but the second time really impressed me – it was done via the telephone, honestly no problems, so quick.”

“We are delighted to be working closely with Rightmove Overseas, which has an established reputation as first port of call for anyone in the UK seeking to buy abroad,” said Charles Purdy, managing director of Smart Currency Exchange. “The dream of a holiday home remains strong but now, perhaps more than ever, these buyers can benefit from the active support of a currency specialist who can give them the confidence and strategies to make their dream of overseas ownership happen.”
