The benefits of using 1st Contact Forex
1st Contact Forex helps you transfer money internationally with ease. We specialise in international bank to bank money transfers, which means we secure great rates at low fees. As an added bonus all transfers above £2,000 are automatically processed free of charge.
Fast transfers to major destinations
We transfer money to and from all major destinations around the world. Our most popular destinations are the UK, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Poland, Hong Kong and all Eurozone destinations.
Bank-beating exchange rates
We invest time and effort into sourcing the best money exchange rates and providing the most competitive service. While banks do individual transfers, we transfer in bulk. Bulk buying means we get better rates and that means we can pass our savings on to you.
We have built key relationships with banks from all around the world and process all our transfers in bulk. This helps us make huge savings, translating into low fees for you. Besides our low fees, every fifth transfer and every transfer over £2,000 (or the equivalent value in another currency) you make with us will be free of charge.
Transferring money online with us is quick, easy and secure. Our online payment portal is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This means you can transfer money from wherever you are in the world, whenever you want.
UK debit cards accepted
Our unique payment portal allows you to use your UK debit card, securely and conveniently, in minutes. When you use a debit card, the rate you see is the rate you get. This means there won’t be any surprises when your money clears into the receiving account.
Online transactions clear within a maximum of three working days from the date of transfer, but it’s usually much faster. If you’re in a hurry, you can use our speed service and we’ll ensure clearance within one working day.

We are trusted by more than 50,000 registered clients and complete over 120,000 transactions per year. We have been registered and licensed with all the right institutions for over 20 years; you can find out more here.
