WorldFirst Australia are extremely excited to receive the award for Outstanding Value in International Money Transfers, for the second year in a row!

The 5-star award was announced today in Canstar’s annual ratings for ‘International Money Transfers’, in the Australian market.

Canstar’s Group Manager, Research and Ratings, Mitch Watson said, “Canstar’s International Money Transfers Star Ratings use a sophisticated and unique ratings methodology, which compares both cost and features across international money transfer providers.”

“This year we have researched and rated 19 overseas money transfer providers, and congratulate WorldFirst on receiving a 5-Star rating for outstanding value.”

In the consumer market, WorldFirst helps people with their international payments and transfers for reasons like planning destination weddings, buying houses or personal effects overseas, setting up new lives abroad, paying off loans and mortgages somewhere else in the world or moving their salary back into the country.

Each provider reviewed for the Canstar International Money Transfer star ratings is awarded points for its comparative pricing and for the array of positive features attached to the product. These features include the availability of facilities, coverage on currencies and consumer resources available.

“WorldFirst is commended for not charging transfer fees and more importantly, for offering competitive exchange rates across all nine currencies measured by Canstar,” Mr Watson said.

“We are extremely thrilled to, once again, receive the award for Outstanding Value from Canstar. To be rated 5 stars, two years in a row, is a real testament to what we do and how we do it,” said Ray Ridgeway, Managing Director at WorldFirst Australia.

Founded in London in January 2004, WorldFirst has steadily grown and in December 2008, an Australian office was opened in Sydney’s CBD.

Starting with only 4 people, the Australian office has grown into a team of 45 and have been helping Australians get a better deal on their international money transfers ever since.
