Does anyone have any experience using Money exchange companies when buying a house in France. One's to avoid and reputable companies that can be trusted?

Any information or advice will be gladly received.

For smaller amounts I use Transferwise, they are brilliant. For extremely large amounts I found Currencies Direct very efficient...

Here's a link for a FREE transfer:-

My experience is that all the money transfer companies transfer for 'free' - there is a tiny charge hidden in the exchange rate, but other than that they bet on rises and falls in currency rates. They are generally highly automated (like stock markets these days) and do the process at the best rate. When they take hours, or even a couple of days on occasion, longer it's because they're betting on a change in the rate.
