Get a free international money transfer

All Kickstart packages include a free international money transfer, courtesy of 1st Contact Forex.

Once we’ve helped you set up your UK bank account, we recommend using your
free money transfer to move funds from back home into your new account.

While you can use your bank to transfer money internationally, their service is often slow.
It can take anything up to seven working days for your money to reach its destination.
On top of this, the banks still charge high commissions and fees and offer poor exchange rates.

This is where 1st Contact Forex comes in. We provide great exchange rates, low
money transfer fees and you can transfer using your UK debit card.
