Foreign Currency Notes
I would like to congratulate the BookMyForex team for such an amazing experience. Very competitive rates & seamless process for booking my Forex Card as everything is online. The customer support staff was incredibly helpful & efficient and the card was delivered on the same day.Highly Recommended to everyone who is looking for forex! Thank you.
Hassle Free Inter country currency exchange services with best conversion rates. Very Prompt & Proactive. Got a Card delivered for my Son at my doorstep the next day morning itself. Wire Transfer services work so well in a limited period of time. Extra- Ordinary Services and Highly Recommendable.
Through the four years of my son studying abroad, I used Bookmyforex as the sole forex provider. With the best rates in India and exemplary service, I always felt I got the best of both worlds - a premium service at the best possible cost. Would recommend this highly to anyone who has forex needs.
I had heard of Book my forex through a friend of mine in 2019 when my daughter took admission in York University Toronto Canada. But I was a little reluctant back then to use the services from an unknown company. Came lockdown 2020 and I was in a complete mess as I had to deposit daughters tuition fees again and was reluctant to go to any of the banks in person. So this time I decided to use Book my forex services and it was flawless. I need not be going out of my house at all. All things went so smoothly on mobile and internet. I would recommend Book my forex for fees transfers to foreign universities and all forex requirements.
I have transferred money to my son, studying abroad, many times in the last two years, through Bookmyforex. Bookmyforex is very safe, reliable, and very fast in wire transfer. Bookmyforex is charging a very nominal exchange rate. I believe that Bookmyforex is the real HERO in wire transfer.
Recently my father had to remit some money to UK for my studies. Our regular bank, made my father visit twice personally for the remittance of my college fees, without any success. However, I discovered BookMyForex which proved to be much easy, homely comfortable, hassle-free, dedicated resolutions and prompt process. So far, my father has transacted at four occasions over the past three months for different forex services and every time we find the team to be as cordial, accommodating, prompt and dedicated as in the first place. Above all, the best rates and immediate prompts for every step in the process of remittance, so that you know the status in real-time. Excellent and dedicated customer service. I highly recommend utilizing BMF services. I am sure you won't go anywhere else afterward.
I would like to thank Bookmyforex for a quick and prompt response. Bookmyforex helped me transferring the money to the Netherlands easily without me having to visit the nearby bank for verification. They also provide the best transfer rate when compared to the other banks and services. I would strongly recommend anyone who would like to use Forex services. The services are quick, reliant, and convenient. Their customer service is exceptional, and they will guide you through the whole process. I found Bookmyforex to be the best option to perform outward remittances."
A forex card (also known as travel card) is one of the most convenient, most secure and the cheapest medium to carry foreign exchange and pay your expenses overseas. A Forex card is a prepaid card on which you can load one or more than one foreign currency to transact or make payments on your foreign travel in a hassle-free manner. The way you use your debit card with Indian Rupees loaded on it, your prepaid travel card functions just like that, the only difference is it can be used for transacting only in foreign currency while travelling abroad.
