Since the Coronavirus outbreak, WorldFirst has closely monitored the global situation. Our priority is to ensure continuity of service for our customers while taking appropriate measures to protect our employees.

Given the increase in UK cases, we have now encouraged employees to work remotely. They are able to operate normally using well-tested systems, and our teams are committed to ensure customer service is not impacted, but if there’s any delay in your calls or emails being answered please bear with us.


Send money abroad with WorldFirst

Whatever the reason – buying or selling a property abroad, making mortgage payments or transferring your pension overseas - by taking advantage of our great exchange rates you could make significant savings compared to your bank.

Money Transfer Comparison has partnered with WorldFirst – one of the UK’s leading currency exchange specialists – to help you move your money more efficiently.


"Last year I made the decision to move abroad and needed to send my money over with me. I was looking for an easy and effective way of making currency transfers and WorldFirst fit the bill!

I was given confidence in my choice by the low transaction costs as well as the possibility to park money in case I could get a better exchange rate at a later date.

Their transactions were not only transparent and quick but they were extremely personable and polite with an empathetic approach to customer attention, a trait I find rare these days."

- Alexander N, Money Transfer Comparison customer

Alexander successfully transferred money from London to his family in Seattle and Singapore several weeks ago. He saved 27% compared to an average bank transfer fee.

"I first used WorldFirst when selling my house in the UK and transferring the funds to buy a property in Belgium.

I loved the simplicity of the entire process, from the presentation of the website and app to the tracking of the transfer itself and of course, the excellent rates. From start to finish, I was put at constant ease by speaking with dedicated member of the WorldFirst team, a real bonus when dealing with large amounts of money!

I now use WorldFirst on a regular basis when transferring my personal savings and without hesitation, would recommend them to friends."
