Money Exchange

Welcome to GCEN

We are delighted to work in partnership with the team at Algarve Complete Property Services, helping their clients save money on their currency transfers.

GCEN (GLOBAL CURRENCY EXCHANGE NETWORK) are one of the UK’s largest foreign exchange companies. We transfer money overseas with no charges or fees, offering better exchange rates than many of the UK high street Banks - helping you save money on international transfers.

We are HMRC and FCA regulated (FRN number 504346) and authorised, ensuring security of your funds at all times. So if you’re just starting out on your property search, be realistic about your Euro budget for the Pounds you have to spend and ensure you find the right property for the right price. This also helps Algarve Complete Property Services, if they know what’s possible then they can look at finding you that dream property that doesn’t break the bank! And it’s not just UK buyers we can help, we can help clients worldwide to transfer their funds from their local currency.

Why not let us help you to calculate your budget? Exchange rates are constantly changing. The exchange rates you see online are normally an indicator of what the market is doing, but they are not an actual rate that you can buy money at. By talking to us, we can help you understand how the exchange rates have been moving over a period of time, what a realistic exchange rate is and we can help you set a realistic budget.

Similarly if you are thinking about repatriating your money we can help you, it’s not just property buyers but property sellers too. Although UK regulated and registered we have an office here, in the sunny Algarve, and would be delighted to meet with you while you are here viewing properties. You can come and meet us in our office in Vilamoura or we can meet you in Algarve Complete Property Services offices.

If you would like to register with us please click here. Registration is completely free and does not obligate you to use the service. Once registered we will be able to monitor and give you exact rates, with the market as volatile as it is at the moment this could be very useful. You can also purchase your money ahead of completion simply by agreeing the rate and paying a deposit. Ultimately our goal is to help make the process of transferring funds abroad as stress-free as possible.

If you just want to talk things through feel free to give us a call on Portugal 289 093 137 or UK 01622 815 201 (our direct line to the Portugal office) or email us at portugal@gcen.co.uk

Good luck with your house hunt!
