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 UK
When you need to transfer money to the UK, we’ll make it faster, cheaper and easier.
Great UK (GBP) exchange rates
Whether you’re moving to the UK for work and need to send your salary home, or buying a property there, we could save you a load of money compared with the banks when it comes to currency transfer to the UK.
It’s all because we take a smaller margin on GBP changed, and give you a better exchange rate. You get more for your money. Simple.
Let’s say someone needed to transfer €110,000 from France to the UK to pay the deposit on a new home. Their bank offers them an exchange rate of 0.747, which would have got them £82,170, but then World First comes along and gives them a much better rate of 0.762* – worth £1,700 more. Who would you choose?

We offer regular transfer plans and forward contracts too, so you can fix an exchange rate in advance, which is great when you need to budget. Our more complex hedging options let you fix a rate but allow you to benefit if it goes in your favour by the time the payment’s due to be made. Confused? Don’t be – we’re here to talk you through the whole process.
