I have been extremely satisfied with my first transaction with World First and the customer service provided. I also like the morning update provided by Jeremy Cook and plan to use World First for future transactions. Professor M.P.
World First give an excellent service. They are courteous, friendly and very patient. Of the six companies I tried for currency exchange, they provided the best rate. Robert Bishop, Cornwall
I would like to thank you for your help in not only providing an excellent service (and exchange rate) but for also allowing a complete novice to enter the world of currency exchange. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending your service to anyone. The McQaid family, Bristol
I would like to thank all of you for the excellent service you have provided on our foreign exchange transactions, particularly over the last couple of months. Thank you for keeping me advised of any changes, for the friendly service and for the prompt and efficient processing. Our gradual move of assets to Australia is now complete, in fact we become citizens in about a month. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others and in fact have already done so for a friend in the UK who's buying property in the US. It's rare to get such professional and outstanding service these days. Amanda, Perth (Australia)
I would like to say how impressed I was with World First, I was kept regularly up-to-date and the service I was given was always first class. Simon Beal, Richmond
We were so delighted with the service we had from World First that we now recommend them to all Shortcuts Property Search clients who are buying property abroad. One happy client saved enough money to furnish her entire apartment with the savings she made as a result of using them rather than her bank - and everyone always comments on the excellent level of service they receive. Jan Pratt, Director, www.shortcutspropertysearch.com
I was very pleased with the service I received from World First; your dealers were lovely and explained everything very well. If I need to use this service again, I'll definitely use World First, and I will be recommending you guys to my friends. Maxine Holt, Exeter
We have been in international property development and sales for a number of years and have used many well known currency companies, but none of them have ever come close to the level of service that we get from World First. Keep up this great service! Andrew Purnell - www.waverleyresorts.com
World First were fantastic, I had a problem with transferring funds from the UK directly into my bank in NZ, for some reason it had to go through an intermediary bank but World First sorted it all out, plus they give me the best rate I could find in the UK at the time. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a professional service when transferring large amounts of money from the UK to NZ. Malcolm Chambers from UK to Hawkes Bay
Many many thanks to the team at World First UK for the excellent service you have provided during our purchase of our apartment in the Caribbean. From the very first contact, during uncertainty with the dates and amounts, to the day when the transfer was finally made, your professionalism and patience was first class. We decided to use your organisation after having read the recommendations and testimonials by your previous customers and were glad that we did. We will certainly be using your services again. Joanna Bryson, Bognor Regis
The service and speed in which my transaction was completed was first class. From the initial beginning in obtaining and booking the rate, to the final notification that the funds had arrived in Australia was great. Craig Poppett, London
The first transaction that we completed recently was a great experience - fast, easy and well communicated. I have been struggling with the antiquated practice of mailing transfer requests to my high-street bank for the past 4 years and paying higher fees for the pleasure of waiting weeks to see the process complete. I will not be doing that again. World First was recommended to me by a colleague also on a foreign service assignment from the UK; I will do the same when I encounter others in the same situation. Julian Lowerson, North Carolina
