  Why use Moneycorp?
    No pressure was placed on me at any time to make use of
    their services. Additionally, contact was made by Moneycorp
    when I was likely to benefit most, i.e. when rates were
    starting to fall and the market suggested that it was going
    to continue to do so. Hence by booking at the right time, I
    saved in excess of £20,000 thanks to Moneycorp.                 Inside are all the things you need
                                     Mrs Kathleen Rose Wade        to remember before you emigrate
