We would highly recommend using a currency exchange company as they can certainly save both the purchaser and the vendor a considerable amount of money. Banks will charge up to 0.04% of the value of cheque when banking the proceeds of a sale. A currency exchange company does not apply this fee. They will also beat the bank where possible on exchange rates.
If you need to take advantage of an attractive exchange rate, it is possible to forward buy with a substantial deposit.
Please enquire further as to who we recommend and if you would like a no obligatory meeting with a local representative who can meet you in your own home or over a coffee.
