How it works

It’s easy to start making or receiving payments with WorldFirst. Once you’ve opened an account, one of our specialists will work with you to find the right solution for your needs.


You’ll need to open an account with WorldFirst. You can do this simply – and for free – using this form. One of the team will then get in touch to verify some details and complete the process.


Let us know who to pay, how much (over £1,000) and in which currency. We'll then quote you a rate so that you can book your payment. Of course, you can do it all yourself online if you prefer.


Once you’ve booked a rate, we’ll email you confirmation containing all the details you need to send us the funds by debit card or bank transfer. Once we have your funds, we’ll make your payment.



No hidden fees or charges

There are no hidden charges or fees for personal transfers. The rate we quote you will include a spread which is simply the difference between the rate we buy your currency at and the rate at which we sell it to you. Ask us – we will always be upfront and transparent about spreads.

We will always do our best to cover correspondent and receiving charges from banks where we can.

With WorldFirst there is a minimum transfer value of £1,000 or equivalent.

Our Clients in their own words

We help tens of thousands with their personal currency exchange. They’re global and these are their stories.

Roy - Sold his home in France

Roy used to use WorldFirst to transfer his pounds to euros while he lived in France and when he sold his property to return to the UK, we were there to help make it easy.

Angela - Sends money overseas

Angela transfers money overseas every month, and loves how easy it is with WorldFirst.

Corey - Transfers his salary

Corey works overseas and is paid in multiple currencies, so he uses WorldFirst to transfer his salary back to his UK bank account when he wants to and not just when he gets paid.
