Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however the transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.


Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Australian Dollar and British Pound Sterling

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency must always be quoted in comparison to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the AUD vs GBP, you should pay attention to both Australian Dollar and British Pound Sterling news and forecasts.

Australian Dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

Sentiment on the Australian dollar took a turn for the worse mid-year after the US announced it would impose massive tariffs on imported goods, as an emerging market crisis gripped the markets, and as the RBA remained dovish on monetary policy.

A global trade war, analysts said, might lead to significant depreciations in commodities prices, and investors tend to express their views on EM risk via the highly liquid Australian dollar. The RBA said mid-year that there was still “no strong case for a near-term adjustment in monetary policy.”

By August 14th, the Aussie had slumped to an 18-month low versus the US dollar of 72.4 cents, down 11 percent on January’s high.

The Aussie was also struggling elsewhere, including against the Japanese yen, against which it weakened to 80 for the first time since late 2016.

While the Aussie spent the period between mid-April and mid-August strengthening against the New Zealand dollar, a longer-term, bigger-picture view shows this cross rate drifting sideways for much of the past 4 ½ years. On August 14th, the Aussie fetched 1.1 NZD.

British Pound Sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

The British pound has slumped across the board in recent months amid uncertainty over Brexit (a “no-deal” divorce with the EU is now seen as most likely).

By August 10th, the pound had fallen versus the US dollar to a 14-month low of 1.2766, and versus the yen, to a 1-year low of 141.6. Versus the euro, the pound has spent much of the last 11 months trading between 1.11 and 1.15; it fetched 1.12 euros at the time of this report.

The pound got no support from the Bank of England’s decision in August to raise its benchmark interest rate to 0.75 percent – the highest since 2009. A member of the BOE’s decision-making board said in August that UK interest rates would need to stay low for at least another 20 years.

Official forecasts from Citibank place GBP/USD at 1.34 in 6-12 months’ time and GBP/EUR at 1.125. Over the same time horizon, Scotiabank sees GBP/USD rising to levels between 1.32 and 1.35, and GBP/EUR falling to 1.1.

Why can't I just get the same AUD/GBP market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

The AUD/GBP mid-rate is the rate you will see Quoted on Google or the News, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the AUD / GBP was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.


When you look up the current Australian Dollar to British Pound Sterling exchange rate on the web the figure you find quoted on sites like google or mentioned on TV is commonly referred to as the mid-market rate.

Getting a great AUD to GBP mid-market rate is all about timing, so unless you are able to wait, watch and time the market this is largely beyond your control. This rate will go up and down with varying amounts of volatility depending on the currency pair.

This mid-market rate is really only a reference and is just the starting point for calculating the actual rate you will get for your transaction, luckily we can also use this same rate to determine how good a deal a rate that a provider offers you actually is.

You can use our AUD to GBP currency converter to calculate equivalent amounts in each currency using the latest mid-market exchange rates. Then choose your transaction type for specific Australian Dollar cross rates and reviews of leading foreign exchange providers versus the Banks.
