What we offer
So called because they’re done ‘on the spot’, this allows you to secure a rate and make your payments straight away. This is the ideal option if you’re a busy person and just need to get things moving as soon as possible!
Like to plan ahead? Then forward contracts are for you. They allow you to lock in an exchange rate now and make your payment later. In fact, you can secure a rate up to two years in advance!
If you need to send money abroad on a regular basis, you’ll want to set up automated payments. You can arrange to do this quickly and easily with us over the phone or online.
Send money to Australia
Right, so you want to transfer money to Australia? Leave it to us – we make it easy, and we’ll save you money too.
Maybe you’re buying a new home here or starting a new life down under. Whatever your reason – work or play - that’s cool, we can help.
World First will give you a really good exchange rate, and it’s all because we take a smaller margin than the banks. A client was offered a GBPAUD exchange rate of 1.78 by their bank. In that case, £250,000 would be worth AU $445,000. World First offered them 1.80, which meant they got AU$5,000. Not to be sniffed at, and the savings you make could be even bigger!
We’ve got a stack of great products and we’ll make sure you get the one that best suits you. With a spot contract, you can deal on the spot. Right there and then, at the best rate on the day. Easy-peasy, done and dusted. Or choose a forward contract which lets you fix a rate for a day in the future. If the rate falls in the meantime, no worries – you’ve already fixed a rate. This helps you budget and gives you peace of mind.
Then there regular payments for mortgages or pensions, and are all sorts of other products that let you benefit if the rate should go in your favour once you’ve fixed a rate.
We’re here to help with the lot. We’ll save you time and money when you send money to Australia. So come on, what are you waiting for?
Not transferring money to Australia? Not to worry – we make money transfers all over the world.
