Bank-beating exchange rates with margins of 0.60% or less

Pricing, often called a margin, is the difference between the rate we buy your currency and the rate we sell it to you. 

Most banks and FX providers will not disclose their pricing/margin as it’s hidden in the exchange rate you receive as the customer. In many cases a fixed fee is also charged. 

WorldFirst clients enjoy margins of 0.60% or less and no fee on payments of NZD $10,000 or more.
