Written on: 09/08/2014

This was amazingly simple and such incredible value for money - thank you! The website was easy to use and my questions were answered by your team quickly and with all the necessary detail. The text and email notifications were especially helpful and kept me abreast of the process in real-time. The exchange rate was the highest available. Again, thank you very much. … Read Full Review

“Great personal service”

Written on: 08/08/2014 by HerrVonGinger (1 review written)

We emigrated from UK to NZ and had large amounts of money plus a regular monthly transfer to be made. The staff with theses people are great. Personal contact and extremely helpful. More importantly I researched exchange rates etc. with a number of different companies and these guys came out the best. Also if your are transferring a large amount of money they are open to a bit of negotiation over the exchange rate. I have used other companies as said, but these came out on top… Read Full Review

“Forex forever”

Written on: 04/08/2014 by wineoinfrance (1 review written)

I have used 1st Contact several times over the past seven years and have found the service to be the best anyone could wish for. The first time I used them I telephoned the UK number and was astonished to be answered by a human being instead of an electronic recording. I now use electronic banking but whenever I have to talk to a member of staff I always get someone who is efficient, polite and friendly. During my last transfer there was a problem with my bank and within hours 1st Contact… Read Full Review

“Brilliant Customer Service and Low Cost”

Written on: 04/08/2014 by pherchristo (1 review written)

We recently moved from Australia to the UK and needed to transfer a large amount of funds over several transactions from home sales etc. The service we received from the 1st Contact team was both professional and easy to use. We were always kept informed as to the time frames for funds reaching our UK account and the low commission rates saved us tens of thousands over what the banks would have charged us. I highly recommend their service and will be using them in the future. Special thanks to… Read Full Review

“Excellent professional hassle and worry free service.”

Written on: 31/07/2014 by Ellisyq44 (1 review written)

I transfer money on a monthly basis overseas . For a really long time I paid a ridiculous amount to my bank to process it until a friend recommended 1st Contact. It's just so easy to use. I love that I get a text message and an email to confirm as soon as the transfer happens. There's never been any difficulties or issues with the service. I'd happily recommend 1st Contact to anyone… Read Full Review

“Cheapest money transfer”

Written on: 30/07/2014 by Edith408 (1 review written)

I transferred money from New Zealand to South Africa and the full cost of it was only $5. No receiving funds needed to be paid in South Africa. I was kept updated all the time via emails as to what's happening with the transfer and it was paid in the exact timeframe they said. I would recommend that everyone who wants to transfer money does it through 1st Contact Forex. Thank you 1st Contact Forex!! … Read Full Review

“Fast Efficient and Friendly”

Written on: 30/07/2014 by Jenkins242 (1 review written)

Well I'm a bit old, but like to think of myself as not so old, but still a bit of techno phobia. Particularly being a country dweller that doesn't get WIFI, Broadband, Cell and the like - I know and we are less than 50k of the Capital of NZ. Anyway needed to get money to Daughter in England. If you've tried to get money overseas before its a drama. Not with 1st Contact Forex, I was able to sign up and be approved in the same day. They rung me to say I was ready to go and helped me through… Read Full Review
