How does it work?
Once you've signed up you can book a rate by phone or online 24/7.
All you need to do is:
Book your rate
Once your account is set up all you need to do is tell us how much you want to send, who you want to pay and which currency you want to pay in. Then we'll quote you a rate. Simple!
Send your money
Once you've booked your rate you'll receive an email confirming your trade details. It'll have the payment information so you can send your money to us by bank transfer.
We send it out
Put your feet up. Grab a cuppa.
We'll do the rest - convert your funds and send the money to the account you requested. Done and dusted.
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 three 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 Europe
Great exchange rates are here!
World First can save money when you send money to Europe. Whether you’ve started a new life with a new home in France, or the kids are off to study in Spain. Or perhaps you want to transfer your pension across to Italy, where you’ve just retired. There are many reasons why you might transfer money to Europe; let us make it easy.
We could save you a bundle of money. A client wanting to change their pounds into euros to pay the deposit on their new country retreat in France went to their bank, who offered them 1.22 on a £250,000 transfer. That’s worth €305,000. But World First offered 1.24, which would have got them an extra €5,000. Think of all the croissants they could buy with that! Not to mention fresh baguettes. And those lovely little pains au chocolat…
We’ve got loads of different products, and you can count on us to find the right one for you. We’ve got simple spot contracts which let you send money to Europe at the best exchange rate on the day. We’ve got forward contracts which let you fix a rate in advance and protect you should the rate go against you in the meantime. Or there are hedging options which let you fix a rate but benefit if they then go in your favour. We’ve got the lot and we’re here to chat you through them.
Now, we don’t want to show off, but our customer service is rather amazing. We’ve won awards and everything. Plus, we’ve got a sparkly online system which lets you transact whenever you like, day or night, and is so simple to use.
So there you have it. That’s us, and we think you’ll like us. Come and join us and start saving time and money when you transfer money to Europe.
Not looking to send money to Europe? That’s cool. We transfer money to countries all over the world.
