Borthwick Family – Saved £8650 when they settled Down Under
Having spent many happy holidays in Australia over a 20 year period James and Patricia Borthwick decided they would emigrate there and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle more permanently. They have settled in Portsea, a holiday town outside Melbourne where James was able to secure a post as a chef prior to their departure.
“Luckily we had a good nest egg of savings and could sell our UK property for a reasonable price. Using the services of Currencies direct has been a godsend. As you can imagine we had a lot on our plate sorting out schools for the children, buying a property and completing all the paperwork so we wanted to transfer our money with the least amount of hassle. We really appreciated the patience of our personal dealer who explained everything in detail so there were no unexpected hitches along the way. He also kept an eye on the rate for us so we moved our sterling to Aussie dollars at the best possible time. “
“We also got a quote from the bank and I calculated that we saved at least £8650 by using Currencies Direct. This was a significant saving which covered the costs of our flights to Australia as well as funding the purchase of a car when we arrived. We might need to send some money to the UK from time to time and we will certainly use the services of Currencies Direct.”
