Expats – Take The Stress Out of Your Currency Transfers
For expats, there are many reasons why you might want to make an international payment. Here are just some of them:
- Overseas mortgage payments – if you’re buying a home abroad, you may need to make regular mortgage payments. Make sure the payments are paid accurately, on time and at the best rate.
- Repatriating salary – if you’re working abroad and want to send money home
- Overseas study fees – if you or your children are studying abroad, you’ll need to pay the fees into the school or University account. Plus, maintenance costs.
- Pension – transferring your pension to the bank account in your new country
Sometimes, the prospect of making currency transfers can be a little daunting, but it really needn’t be.
It can be tempting to use your bank to make the transfer; maybe through loyalty to that bank or because you think it’ll be easier. Don’t make that mistake. Banks will usually give you an inferior exchange rate and the level of service may not be as high as it ought to be.
It’s much better to go with a currency exchange specialist like World First, who will give you a much better exchange rate than the banks, meaning more of your money stays with you. Plus, they offer the fastest available international payments, and give outstanding customer service that will take the stress out of the whole process. With every phone call answered in three rings and their easy-to-use online platform, there’s no easier way of moving your money.
If you’re an expat, or are currently at the stage where you’re just thinking about the move, get the currency exchange right, and make it easy.
