Why us an FX (Foreign Currency Exchange) company ?

Here at Miles Immobilier we are constantly trying to improve our service to clients – vendors and buyers alike. Now whether you are buying or selling the chances are you will be changing pounds to euros or euros to pounds.
 Its important to get as many euros for your pounds as you can if you are buying. Likewise, if you are selling you would like as many pounds as you can for your euros if you are going back to the UK.
Now FX (Foreign Exchange) companies tend to be 3 or 4% more competitive than traditional banks. Whilst this not sound much on say a 100 000 euro property that would be 3 to 4000 euros more to spend on your ideal home.

With better foreign currency exchange rates than high street banks, it’s no wonder so many people choose our foreign exchange companies for their currency conversion needs.

Foreign Currency Exchange - When is the best time to open an account ?

Good question. My view is that once you ve decided to buy in France – open an account. There are formalities that need to be respected so you can get your identification and address confirmed. Having an account in place makes it easier to move funds over to pay the deposit to the notaire for example. Its good to make contact early on in the buying process. 

There s so much uncertainty now with the Covid virus and Brexit – speak to the currency dealers about which way the rate is going…what your options are about fixing the rate – they are there to help you – keep in contact.
