“1st class service!”

Written on: 16/06/2014

The service we have received for this transaction, as well as all the others we have done in the past, has been absolutely fantastic and first rate! Given we were needing to transfer a rather large sum of money we did look at what our bank could provide but they couldn't even come close to the exchange rate and the speed and level of service. We are definitely happy to recommend 1st contact to anyone needing to transfer money overseas and will continue to use them in the future. Thanks 1st… Read Full Review

“Top value, friendly and efficient”

Written on: 10/06/2014 by PaulSc (1 review written)

I periodically send funds to South Africa. This time around, I sent about $19,500. If I had used my bank to send the funds via telegraphic transfer, I would have been approximately $720 worse off, compared to using 1st Contact Forex. The guys I have spoken to at 1st Contact are always helpful, friendly and professional… Read Full Review

“always brilliant!”

Written on: 03/06/2014 by 316Thornton (1 review written)

I have been using 1st contact for 5 years and I've never had anything but an excellent service, in fact the service and it's offering continues to go from strength to strength. Banking with 1st Contact is easier than banking with a UK bank! The people I deal with are always very friendly, professional and willing to seek out alternative ways to help. Such a superb South African service makes me proud to be South African! Thank you… Read Full Review

I have a daughter living in London and as you know it is always good to be able to send over money to her without incurring heaps of fees and charges and also to arrive asap. 1st Contact does that - I have used this service a number of times and have not had any trouble.

“Review your transfer fee for client”

Written on: 27/04/2014 by Estrellaz409 (1 review written)

HSBC used to charge £9 per transfer which is now reduced to £4. Considering that other forex companies charge less than £10 and give a slightly better exchange rate, am thinking of registering with someone else for my future transfers unless there is a change in your costs… Read Full Review

“The best way to send money overseas!”

Written on: 26/04/2014 by Prinny1 (1 review written)

After researching many different ways to send money to my mum in Europe and having to pay so much more in fees than with 1st Contact Forex, I don't hesitate to recommend their service to anyone interested in saving money. The service is great. My emails were answered right away with the answers to my questions. Staff I talked to over the phone were very helpful and polite as well as friendly -something I always look for and appreciate in any kind of service I receive. Although I expected that… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/04/2014 by Jocm66 (1 review written)

I am very impressed by the service from 1st Contact. My son had used them from Australia and recommended them when I wanted to transfer some funds to his account. It was much easier to register than I expected and despite a slight glitch when I tried to send the document scans through by email - it was so much quicker uploading to the website - everything went so smoothly. The responses and contact from 1st Contact have been outstanding. I've had emails almost instantly confirming or explaining… Read Full Review

“A valued foreign exchange companion for 10 years so far”

Written on: 01/04/2014 by tharinacronje (1 review written)

I've been using 1st Contact for all of my foreign transfers for the past 10 years. They have always been very helpful when I had to contact them. Fast transfers, they say it takes 3 days to clear, but only once has it not cleared within the next day - that is good going. Their website & online payment make transfers abroad quick & easy! Thank you!… Read Full Review

“Very positive first experience UK to US”

Written on: 29/03/2014 by Jarvis10 (1 review written)

I used 1stContact's FOREX service for the first time this past week to transfer GBP from a British bank account to USD in an American account to finance a property purchase. I relied heavily on internet forums to learn about their service, so I want to give a little something back. The first step is to setup an online account. This can be done pretty quickly compared to some other services (e.g., XE trade), provided you can satisfy the ID requirements. Once established you are ready to… Read Full Review
