We have been working with RationalFX for a number of years, and they have helped thousands of Zoopla clients save money on their overseas property purchase.

RationalFX will not only allocate a dedicated account manager, who will speak in your chosen language, they will guide you on the currency markets so when it comes to buying the property you can sit back in comfort knowing you have got market leading currency rates.

Typically RationalFX will save you around 3% on your overseas property purchase against high street banks. So for example, on a €200,000 property you could save around €6,000 - perhaps an extra bedroom or swimming pool for the new escape…

See how we helped the Taylors save money on their overseas property purchase

The Taylors

Mr and Mrs Taylor had been going to Alicante for years, as their chosen holiday destination. They finally decided they wanted to buy a property there to take friends and family, and spend long summers there in the blissful sun.

Having decided on their location, they started investigating how they were going to manage the payment in an overseas currency. They started researching rates online but found the whole currency market confusing, and didn't know how they would send the money overseas securely and quickly. Having spoken to some friends, who had also bought in Alicante, they were recommended RationalFX.


Speaking to RationalFX they were allocated a dedicated account manager who explained how it all worked and set them up with a free no obligation account. Having compared against some other bank rates, David Taylor explains, "it was a no-brainer, Adam, my personal account manager, talked me clearly through the whole process, which really put my mind at ease, as I was about to invest a large sum of money on a property in Alicante."

RationalFX guided Mr and Mrs Taylor through their overseas payment, saving them over €7,000 on their €250,000 property. They have now moved into their new property and used the money they saved to put in a new kitchen. David Taylor said "we were really happy with the service we were offered from RationalFX and would recommend them for anyone thinking of buying a property abroad."
