Exchange rates Explained

To the common man, the very word exchange rate brings to mind the picture of some complicated calculation and transaction. However, it is easy to understand exchange rates if you understand a few details. For instance, exchange rate depends on several factors such as:

  • The currency you want
  • Transaction – whether you wish to buy or sell the currency
  • The type of product – Travel Money, a Travel Card or International money transfer

St George Bank Exchange Rate Table

Let’s use the above chart to learn more about currency, transaction type, exchange rates and their calculation under various situations.

Currency

Let’s assume that you are heading to the US and would like to know about the exchange rates of the Dollar (USD). Although there would be a long list of exchange rates across various currencies, in this case, you should look at only the exchange rates for the USD. Likewise, if you are travelling to Italy, France, or any other European Country, you’ll need to find the exchange rates of the Euro. You should check the exchange rates of the GBP if you are travelling to the UK. In short, you need to look at the exchange rates of your host country only.

Transaction

The next determinant of the exchange value is the type of transaction – that is, whether you are buying or selling the foreign currency. If you are travelling abroad, you’ll invariably need to buy some foreign currency. Conversely, if you have just returned from a foreign trip, with some spare foreign currency, you will have to sell the same.

You can see that the sample chart above carries the details of both purchase and sale price of several currencies (usually the banks will list the exchange rates of all the currencies they deal with). If you are travelling overseas, you’ll need foreign currency and hence, you should check the details under the columns marked as ‘Bank Sells’. The bank will offer you these rates when you purchase the desired foreign currency from them.

If you wish to sell foreign currency or if you wish to receive money from overseas, you should look at the figures under the columns marked as ‘Bank Buys’. The bank will buy the foreign currency from you for the rates quoted.

Type of product you need

Now that you have understood the buying and selling rates, you’ll have to choose the type of product to suit your need. As St George Bank exchange rates differ slightly across the products, the amount you receive in exchange also varies accordingly. Use the table for the finding the exchange rates for various products and choose the best combination you wish.

The term Telegraphic Transfer refers to the exchange rate that you’ll receive if you make a St George bank transfer to or from another bank account overseas.

The term “Travel Card/Chq” refers to the exchange rate you’ll receive if you load a St George Travel Card to meet your foreign travel needs.

“Notes/Cash” refer to the exchange rate you’ll receive if you are to buy or sell currency in hard cash through the bank’s branch. Please remember that exchange rates at other places like the airport would be different.

How do you calculate currency conversions?

Once you match your product with the right exchange rate, you can proceed to currency conversion calculation. The general rule of thumb is:

  • Convert AUD into foreign currency by multiplying it by the rate
  • Convert foreign currency into AUD by dividing it by the rate

Here are some conversion calculations for various situations:

Buying Travel Money

A common question heard during the purchase of travel money is – How much Currency will your money buy?

If you know clearly the amount of money you want to convert, you can use the following formula:

Australian Dollars in hand multiplied by the exchange rate of notes = the amount of money you will receive in foreign currency.

For example, if you have AUD 1000 with you and wish to buy USD at the rate of .7172, then the amount of USD you’ll get in exchange is:

1000 AUD * 0.7172 = 717.2 USD

Another frequent question is – What will be the cost to buy a certain amount of currency?

If you wish to buy a certain amount of foreign currency, here is how to calculate the cost in AUD:

AUD Cost = Amount of Currency You Want to Buy/Exchange Rate of Notes

1000 GBP / 0.5287 = 1891.43 AUD

What would it cost to send a certain amount of currency overseas?

The calculation to send a fixed amount of money overseas is the same as buying travel money (AUD Cost = Amount of Currency You Want to Buy/Exchange Rate). Here, you should remember that the exchange rates would slightly differ between notes and IMT/TT.

What are the rates for receiving currency from overseas?

To calculate the amount of money you should receive in AUD from overseas, use the following calculation:

The AUD You Receive = Amount of Currency Received/Exchange Rate for IMT/TT

1000/0.5878 = 1701.25AUD

Thus, a simple calculation can help you find the exchange rates for the foreign currency required. A main point to remember is that there would be slight rate variations according to the type of product you wish to buy/sell. Also, not all products and services might be available across all currencies. Furthermore, rates will be different at St George Foreign Exchange centres.
