Hi

Im in the process of buying my home in Spain. Has anyone who has done this used Excel Currencies to exchange to euros?

Does anyone have any feedback, positive or negative based on experience?

I have been recommended to use Currencies Direct, however having made contact with Excel Currencies, they claim to be able to give me a better rate of exchange. 

All comments welcome especially if they are based on experience.

Thanks in advance

I have found Currencies Direct to be excellent. If you access them online you can see the exchange rate instantly, to compare with other offerings
